Canaveral Port Authority say that they demonstrated their commitment to employee development recently by hosting the CPE Certified Port Executive Program when 13 alumni were added to that program.

The Port Authority expains that this course was unique in that the majority of the attendees were from Port Canaveral. They joined David Perley, Senior Director of Construction and Infrastructure, who graduated from the Miami course in May 2013 and consider this to be an excellent example of building a port management team that is working from a common frame of reference learning.

By adding the CPE Certified Port Executive Program credentials to many of their managers, the Port says it is giving them the knowledge to individually make a more effective contribution to the organization, and to function more effectively as a team.

  • Jim Dubea, Deputy Executive Director, Government and Strategic Partnerships, Canaveral Port Authority, Cape Canaveral, FL
  • Shannon Feeley, Assistant Director, Cargo, Business Development, Canaveral Port Authority, Cape Canaveral, FL

  • Albert Jendroch, Assistant Director, Facilities, Maintenance and Landscaping, Canaveral Port Authority, Cape Canaveral, FL
  • Karen Pappas, Director, Purchasing and Policies, Canaveral Port Authority, Cape Canaveral, FL
  • Rodger Rees, Deputy Executive Director, Chief Financial Officer, Canaveral Port Authority , Cape Canaveral, FL
  • Bob Callahan, Vice President of Operations, Tampa Port Authority, Tampa, FL
  • Edilberto Moreno, Operations Manager, Buckeye Partner, Tampa, FL
  • Bo Etheridge, Shoreline Development, Biloxi, MS
  • Peggy S. Gandiaga, Director of Commission Affairs, Port of Palm Beach, Riviera Beach, FL
     

Company President Ralston MacDonnell congratulated the graduates and reiterated the company objectives for the program by saying, “Port competitiveness is impacted by knowledge.
