“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.
