The Port of Oswego Authority has announced the appointment of Zelko N. Kirincich to the position of Executive Director. He assumed his new responsibilities on January 6, 2014.

Mr. Kirincich comes from the Port Authority of Tampa, Florida, where he worked from 1996-2013. He most recently served there as Deputy Port Director and Chief Operating Officer.

Prior to his 17 years at the Port of Tampa, Mr. Kirincich worked for 14 years at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, where he specialized in engineering, project management and facilities management.

Mr. Kirincich received a bachelor’s degree in engineering from Manhattan College, and a master’s degree in business administration from Manhattan College/Fordham University. Prior to his appointment to the Port of NY/NJ, he worked as a design engineer at the Syska Hennessey Engineering Group in New York City.

At the Port of Tampa, Mr. Kirincich’s leadership resulted in increases in shipping tonnage, and the diversity of materials handled. His team expanded the aggregate and cement business from two to five million tons in less than four years.

Mr. Kirincich also initiated a new computer communication program to improve fiscal communication within the port and between the port and customers. He also worked closely with a burgeoning cruise line business that now includes 900,000 passengers annually.

The Port of Tampa, during 2012, had a $15.1 billion economic impact on the Tampa area (up from about $8 billion in 2006). It is one of the country’s biggest ports in total tonnage. Over 80,000 jobs (in all categories) were supported by the Port of Tampa, and the total port-related wages and salaries in that area were calculated at $4.2 billion.
