On the heels of Tampa Port Authority Chairman Steve Pinney announcing his plan to resign from the board, the port has formally begun the process of replacing him.
The Port Authority will soon send a formal letter to the Port of Tampa Maritime Industries Association and the Propeller Club confirming Pinney's resignation, effective June 1. From there, the two organizations will come up with a shortlist of nominees that have maritime industry backgrounds, port officials said.
Gov. Crist will select Pinney's successor.
In the meantime, Pinney will focus on his executive responsibilities at Mosaic Co., which has relocated him to a position at its Plymouth, Minn. headquarters.
