The Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority’s board on Thursday elected Marc Krantz as chairman.
Chris Ronayne was also named vice chairman, while Diane Downing was picked to be secretary. They will each serve one-year terms.
Krantz is managing partner of the Cleveland law firm Kohrman Jackson & Krantz. He has served on the port’s board since 2009, and was for the last two years vice chairman, and chairman of the port board’s Real Estate and Development Finance Committee.
Ronayne and Downing were both appointed to the port board in 2011. Ronayne is president of University Circle Inc. and Downing is senior vice president and regional manager of corporate affairs at Huntington National Bank in Cleveland.
Also approved at the board meeting were a new one-year operating agreement with Federal Marine Terminals, which operates the port’s general cargo facilities, and renewal of a one-year operating agreement with Kenmore Construction Co., which uses port property to receive and distribute bulk construction materials.
