Tampa port chief gets four more years
Paul Anderson, president and ceo of Port Tampa Bay, was granted a four-year employment contract extension by the port's board of commissioners.

Anderson has served two years as the port’s top executive. He received a unanimous 'outstanding' rating from the seven port commissioners.

In a release, the port said Anderson will be setting into motion an aggressive plan to move business development ahead during the next few years, focusing on container, auto and general cargo increases, as well as continued development of the port’s maritime and industrial land assets.

Concerning the cruise business, as reported this week, Tampa currently has six homeporting ships. Counting transit calls, this is projected to be the Florida Gulf port's busiest winter season in history.
