“His pivotal role on today’s waterfront representing those who hire longshore labor—carriers, terminals and stevedores—makes him a key component in working to maintain good labor relations and keep the port working well,” he added. In 1972, Mr. Curto joined Maher Terminals and spent 37 years in various positions within the company. In 2007, he was named President of Maher Terminals LLC. During his tenure at Maher, he participated in the transformation of Maher’s facility in Elizabeth, New Jersey into the Port’s largest container cargo facility. Mr. Curto has been President of NYSA since 2009.
 

His passion for the maritime industry is prevalent through his involvement with many trade organizations. Mr. Curto serves as President of the National Maritime Safety Association where he addresses issues regarding the safety and efficiency of marine cargo handling operations. He also serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the United Stated Maritime Alliance, Ltd. and as a trustee on a number of industry Taft-Hartley Funds and Plans.
