 FIRM OF GORDON, THOMAS, HONEYWELL, MALANCA, PETERSON & DAHEIM
 TACOMA, Wash., Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Larry Killeen, former executive director of the Port of Tacoma and one-time Seattle business executive, has joined the Tacoma law firm of Gordon, Thomas, Honeywell, Malanca, Peterson & Daheim as director of trade and project development, the law firm announced today.
 In his position, Killeen will work with a variety of the firm's clients, including developers, local governments and businesses in Tacoma and throughout the Puget Sound region, on development projects, international trade and port-related opportunities, real estate development and local government issues.
 "There are many positive things happening in Pierce County and other areas of Puget Sound," Killeen said. "This job will enable me to participate in these things from a development standpoint."
 Killeen, who is not a lawyer, will serve as a member of the Natural Resources Practice Group. Managing Partner Dennis S. Harlowe said Killeen will strengthen the law firm's multidisciplinary legal service area.
 "This is another area in which Gordon, Thomas, Honeywell io?n the cutting edge of solving difficult problems through nonadversarial means," Harlowe said. "We are combining legal and other skills to find solutions for our clients."
 Jim Waldo, who chairs the Natural Resources Practice Group of the law firm, said many legal clients are looking for multidisciplinary advice. "In addition, public and private decisions are increasingly becoming intertwined," Waldo said. "Larry has the ability to pull the threads together and make things happen. Throughout his career, Larry has demonstrated he is an impact player who gets results, and Gordon, Thomas, Honeywell is lucky to have him join us."
 "Larry is a first-class professional," said Bill Wilkerson, chairman of the Negotiations and Mediation Practice Group. "He did a superb job as port executive director, but he clearly is an expert in a number of fields in which our legal clients need advice. He knows international trade, real estate development and port-related issues up and down the coast."
 Killeen served as Port of Tacoma executive director from 1984 to 1989 and led the Port thorough its major expansion. During that five-year period, the Port jumped from 21st to sixth in the country in container-handling volume. He played the critical role in attracting two major shipping lines -- K-Line and Maersk -- to Tacoma.
 Killeen was actively involved in negotiating the $162-million land claims settlement between the Puyallup Indian Tribe and the Port, City of Tacoma and other governmental agencies.
 Killeen left the port position to become president of the Seattle-based Sabey Corp. In that position, he was responsible for overseeing the real estate development company's holdings, including retail shopping centers, office complexes and warehouses.
 Prior jobs included director of real estate and later senior director of facilities for the Port of Seattle from 1978 to 1984. He also held various marketing and real estate-related positions with Shell Oil Co.
 Killeen was appointed by Gov. Booth Gardner to the State Export Assistance Center. He presently serves as chairman.
 Killeen holds a bachelor's degree in business from Hartwick College in Oneonta, N.Y., and an M.B.A. from Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif.
