HESS Club, 5430 Westheimer Rd., Houston, TX 77056



Captain Diehl, President of the Greater Houston Port Bureau, will discuss the mix of vessels calling on the port, the factors that influence their decision to call here, and the forecast for our regional ports over the next few years.


Captain Bill Diehl, U.S. Coast Guard (Ret.), is President of the Greater Houston Port Bureau, a maritime trade organization of 190 companies. 

Before coming to the Port Bureau, Bill served 31 years in the Coast Guard in a variety of challenging jobs including serving as a diplomatic liaison officer to the Panama Canal.  His last assignment was command of the largest operational unit in the Coast Guard: Sector Houston-Galveston.  In this role he led 2,600 personnel in the highly successful response to Hurricane Ike in 2008.  The response included saving 235 lives, cleaning up 240 oil spills, and the largest waterway restoration effort in the history of the Coast Guard.

Bill came to the Port Bureau in 2009.  The Port Bureau supplies its companies with detail vessel traffic information and maritime expertise in safety, security, and environmental issues and has been instrumental in representing members, the Houston Ship Channel Security District, and the Greater Houston Coffee Association in front of state and federal legislators. 

Bill is a 1982 graduate of the Coast Guard Academy and later obtained a Masters Degree from the University of Michigan in Naval Architecture, Marine Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.  He is a registered Professional Engineer in the state of Virginia.
