Captain Vic Goldberg, vice president of marine operations for Crowley Maritime Corporation's petroleum transportation team, and Tony Otero, vice president of finance and planning for the Company's shipping and logistics operations, were awarded 2009 Thomas Crowley trophies, the company's highest honor.
  
The employee recognition program was created in 1985; only 52 of the company's more than 4,300 employees have been awarded the limited-edition bronze sculpture, which depicts a young Thomas Crowley as he ferried goods to and from ships on San Francisco Bay in the early 1890s. The trophy serves not only as a tribute to the founder of the company, but also to those honorees who have aligned themselves closely with the company's values and displayed outstanding performance along with dedication, leadership, initiative and productivity.
 
Tom Crowley, Jr., chairman, president and CEO, presented the awards during ceremonies attended by more than 50 local employees.

Goldberg joined Crowley in 2002 as vice president of ship management in Weehawken, N.J., and was promoted in 2005 to vice president of marine operations. He relocated to Jacksonville in 2006, and today is responsible for the safe and reliable operation of Crowley's marine petroleum assets including 7-product tankers and 14-articulated tug barges. Prior to joining the company, Goldberg worked in a number of capacities, primarily with petroleum shipping companies-moving from deck officer to ship captain on vessels at sea to managerial positions on shore. A retired U.S. Navy Reserve captain, Goldberg retains an Unlimited Master's License (any ocean, any tonnage - 8th Issue), and is an ISO certified auditor. He is a graduate of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, is a recipient of the Meritorious Alumni Award and is a past president of the academy's Port of New York Alumni Association.

Otero started his career as a senior accountant at Crowley in 1998 after working several years for the accounting firm, Deloitte & Touche. He was promoted to manager, accounting, in 2004 and to director, finance, for the logistics business unit in 2006. The following year he also assumed the financial responsibilities for the Puerto Rico Caribbean liner business unit as well as the Latin America liner group including all accounting activities in foreign countries.  In 2010, Otero was promoted to vice president finance and planning for the three liner/logistics business units. Otero earned his bacholar's degree in accounting and his master's degree in accounting from the University of Florida, and he is a certified public accountant (CPA).
