Charleston, SC The South Carolina State Ports Authority (SCSPA) has promoted Fred N. Stribling to the position of vice president, marketing and sales.

Stribling will be responsible for all of the SCSPA's carrier and cargo sales, pricing and marketing functions. He oversees a staff of 14 and reports to the president and chief executive officer, Bernard S. Groseclose Jr. He replaces the retiring George W.
