Crowley's Puerto Rico/Caribbean liner services group announced two management appointments on Feb. 9 — Rudy Leming to vice president, marine & terminal operations, and Matt Jackson to vice president, Caribbean Island services. Both will report to John Douglass, senior vice president and general manager, and remain domiciled in Jacksonville.
In filling a newly created position, Leming, who previously served as vice president, Caribbean Island services will be responsible for terminal operations and maintenance at Crowley's Jacksonville, Fla., and Pennsauken, N.J., facilities; and marine operations and freight services for the company's Puerto Rico and Caribbean trades.   
Jackson, who previously served as vice president of procurement, will have profit and loss responsibilities for Crowley's Bahamas and Caribbean island services, including sales and operations at the company's St. Thomas terminal and at other locations where Crowley has agency representation.
Leming began his career with Crowley in 1984 when the company purchased Delta Lines. He was transferred to port operations at Petty's Island and worked his way up from maintenance manager to terminal manager to director of port operations before being transferred to Jacksonville as director of port operations in 1997. In 2000, Leming was promoted to vice president of operations where he remained until becoming vice president, Caribbean Island services in 2006. Leming is a past recipient of the Thomas Crowley Trophy, Crowley Maritime Corporation's highest honor.

Jackson joined Crowley in 2002 as enterprise program manager in the information technology (IT) department. He was then promoted to director, corporate planning, where he facilitated the development of the corporation's strategic business plans and objectives. Before his move to Crowley, Jackson worked with a major consulting firm developing new business and creating value for customers, and was a U.S. Air Force captain serving as an acquisitions officer providing logistics and contracting services. Most recently, as vice president of procurement, Jackson was responsible for corporate wide purchasing, contract negotiations, warehousing, facilities, travel and office services. He has a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Alabama and a master's degree in industrial engineering from the University of Arkansas.
