Crowley Maritime Corp.’s liner services division has appointed Tony Otero to vice president of Caribbean services.
Otero replaces Matt Jackson, who will take on a new position in Crowley’s petroleum services Jan. 1.
In his new role, Otero will be responsible for sales, marketing and operational shipping activities throughout Crowley’s network in the Caribbean, which serves more than 24 islands, including the Bahamas, Trinidad, Barbados, Dominican Republic, Haiti, the U.S. Virgin Islands and other Leeward Islands.
He started his career as a senior accountant at Crowley in 1998 after working several years for accounting firm Deloitte & Touché.
Crowley also appointed Nelly Yunta to vice president of sales, marketing and customer care, and promoted Pete Noyer to vice president of national accounts.
Yunta, who most recently held the role of vice president of Customized Brokers, Crowley’s Miami-based customs brokerage subsidiary, will relocate from Miami to Jacksonville, Fla., for the position, but will continue to oversee Customized Brokers' operations in her new position, the carrier said.
Noyer will leave his post as vice president of business development for shipping and logistics to assume his new role, which was previously held by Charlie Dominguez. Dominguez will transition into a sales consulting role in the new year after 29 years of full-time service to Crowley. Noyer will remain in Jacksonville.
As a result of these changes, Tim Quirk, most recently director of pricing, will assume Noyer’s business development role, with responsibility for handling Crowley’s Northeast, Midwest and inside sales accounts. Additionally, he will work to continually find revenue opportunities for Crowley’s shipping and logistics teams in those regions.
