Ports America Appoints Tilden

Wednesday, November 05, 2008

Douglas Tilden has been named to the advisory board of Ports America Group.

Tilden most recently served as chairman of Ports America Group, the largest stevedoring and terminal operating company in the Americas providing services at 97 terminals in 50 U.S. ports. Ports America Group (PAG) is an affiliated group of terminal operating companies owned by Highstar Capital, a leading infrastructure fund.

Tilden’s career in the shipping industry began in 1969 with United States Lines. His most recent position as chairman of Ports America Group led to his appointment as senior strategic analyst to the advisory board, which oversees the operation of Ports America Group. Tilden, past president of MTC Holdings, Inc., is actively involved in the maritime industry and public affairs and serves on the boards of several associations, including the Pacific Maritime Association.

Stephen Edwards, president and CEO of Ports America Group, said, "with the elimination of the role of company chairman, Doug’s elevation to the Ports America Group Advisory Board provides us with a senior advisor who has an excellent perspective on issues relating to our maritime interests and particularly to the continued successful direction and expansion of Ports America.”

Ports America, headquartered in Iselin, N.J., is an independent port terminal operator in North America, providing terminal management and stevedoring services as well as portside automotive processing services. Ports America operates at 97 terminals in the U.S. and Mexico, handling containers, roll on/roll off cargo, general cargo and cruise ship passengers and luggage. Ports America employs more than 12,000 people each day at its operations, including full-time equivalent employees.
