Change in Leadership at Newport on the Levee Announced

Newport on the Levee will have a new general manager.

Harold Dull, general manager for the past seven years, will retire at the end of June. He will be replaced by longtime director of operations Barney Estes.

“We are very grateful for the leadership, guidance and vision Harold provided during his tenure as the GM. He will be missed by all who have worked with him during the past seven years,” said Sherry Bahrambeygui, CEO of Newport on the Levee, LLC, in a statement. 

“It’s been my privilege to work with a great staff and I look forward to seeing the evolution of Newport on the Levee continue under Barney’s leadership," Dull said. "My thanks to all of the business leaders and government officials who have been so supportive during my time here. In July, I will become a part-time consultant working on new business development for Newport on the Levee. I am very excited to start this new adventure.”

Estes has been at the Levee since 2001 and has another ten years of experience in operations and property management in the shopping center industry, an announcement said. Currently, he oversees the day-to-day operations of the Levee and tenant coordination.

The owners of Newport on the Levee have appointed Barney Estes as General Manager, effective Saturday, July 1, 2017. 

“We are very fortunate to have someone with the depth of knowledge that Barney has, to assume the General Manager position. We are very confident that Barney will provide outstanding leadership as we continue to reposition Newport on the Levee for the future,” said Bahrambeygui.
