Ex-port officials open consulting firm

Two former leaders of the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority are operating a new business consulting firm in Holland.

James Poure, former port authority chairman, is CEO of James A. Poure & Associates Inc. James Hartung, former president of the authority, is listed as an associate on the company's Web site.

The firm provides small businesses with such services as financial planning, market research, mergers and acquisitions assistance, and event planning.

Mr. Hartung was fired from the port authority in August, 2008, for inappropriate relations with a female lobbyist. His biography on Mr. Poure's Web site states he is chairman and executive vice president of SeaSnake World Wide Marketing LLC, a Wisconsin firm specializing in cargo ships that link like train cars.

Mr. Poure is founder, chairman, and CEO of GAC Chemical Corp., in Searsport, Maine, and has a Toledo area office.

His term with the port authority board expired in 1999.
