Port of South Louisiana Commissioner Fryoux Retires

Port of South Louisiana -- During the September 2015 regular commission meeting, Commissioner J. Raymond Fryoux was recognized for over seven years of service to the Port of South Louisiana. Commission President D. Paul Robichaux and Executive Director Paul G. Aucoin presented him with a commemorative clock in appreciation of the time he served on the board of commissioners (March 3, 2008 to July 16, 2015).

Before joining the Port of South Louisiana commission board, Fryoux had already made his mark in the maritime industry.  For over 35 years, he owned and operated tankerman services, specializing in loading and unloading oil and chemicals from vessels, terminals, and refining along the Unites States waterways. Later, he formed his own consulting firm, concentrating in barge and maritime transfer.
 
“Raymond is to be commended for his years of dedicated service to the Port of South Louisiana,” said Port of South Louisiana Executive Director Paul Aucoin. “During his seven plus years serving as a Commissioner, the Port experienced tremendous growth. Although we will miss him, we wish him good health.”
