The American Maritime Partnership (AMP) announced the election of Thomas Allegretti as its new Chairman.
Allegretti is President & CEO of The American Waterways Operators. He succeeds James Henry, Chairman and President of the Transportation Institute. Henry will now serve as AMP’s Vice Chairman.
As AMP Chairman, Mr. Allegretti leads a coalition to represent the domestic maritime industry. Its 450-plus members span the country and its territories and include vessel owners and operators, shipbuilders and repair yards, dredging and marine construction contractors, trade associations, pro-defense groups, and more.
These diverse but allied interests all recognize that a strong domestic maritime industry is critical for America's economic, national, and homeland security, and is best supported by maintaining the Jones Act as the basis of America's domestic maritime policy
