These selections will help me and our management team provide the most efficient and reliable Canal service in the world," said ACP Administrator Alberto Alemán Zubieta. Rooney and Dr. Gellman represented the new Board members at the seventh meeting of the ACP Advisory Board which was held in Panama on February 13th and 14th.
