"Mr. Bozzo's leadership and dedication to the Port of New York and New Jersey has significantly impacted and will continue to benefit our region," said David Schlenger, NY/NJ FFFBA President.

 
"As the largest ocean carrier in the U.S. specializing in containerized cargo and the second largest steamship line in the world, MSC serves as a linchpin for our industry, and we are very proud to honor Mr. Bozzo," Mr. Schlenger continued.

Mr. Bozzo joined Mediterranean Shipping Company in New York in 1994. Starting as a clerk in the intermodal department, he quickly worked his way up the ranks, gaining experience managing most of the major departments within the company.  In 2005, he became President and oversees some 1,300 employed by MSC in the United States. Mr. Bozzo began his career in sales and marketing at Columbus Travel, developing the Turkish and Caribbean markets. 

He currently serves as President of the Italian American Chamber of Commerce. Since 2010, he sits as both the President of all the Italian Chambers in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) area, as well as the Vice President of the European American Chamber of Commerce.

Among many honors, Mr. Bozzo was inducted into the United Nations International Maritime Hall of Fame, becoming one of the youngest ocean carrier Presidents to receive this honor in 2011.
