Davie Breaux is Deputy Port Director for the Greater Lafourche Port Commission (GLPC), which runs Port Fourchon and the South Lafourche Leonard Miller, Jr. Airport in Louisiana. Port Fourchon is a multi-use coastal port that functions primarily as a land base for multiple offshore energy support service companies.
Davie, who has 40 years of experience in planning, designing, and construction, oversees all GLPC projects at both port and airport. He is a valuable asset to the port commission, often illustrating the “big picture” of industry and environment working together successfully and how both are integral to the port’s success.
Over the past 28 years, Davie has helped Port Fourchon design, fill, and develop over 1,400 acres of property and has overseen the construction of approximately fourteen miles of bulkhead along GLPC’s newly created waterfront property. Davie has a hand in every development decision, from planning port roadways with utilities access to creating cutting-edge development projects that include recreation and marsh creation components. Davie has helped design and construct over 1,100 acres of pristine marsh for mitigation and beneficial purposes. Davie oversees lease inspections and even monitors plant growth on newly created land. Today, Port Fourchon property is leased by over 200 companies, servicing about 95% of the energy industry in the entire Gulf of Mexico while pioneering smart and resilient coastal planning efforts into the future.
Davie is a 1986 graduate of Nicholls State University and has a degree in Business Administration.
