Port Department Vision and Mission
The Port Department is one of the five-line department businesses of the PANYNJ. It is responsible for managing the largest port complex on the East Coast and the third largest in the nation. It operates a highly competitive and dynamic business in a very complex political environment. The Port has become an economic engine that provides over 400,000 jobs in the region and nearly $100 billion in economic activity.
For the past 15 years, the Port has been preparing itself for the growing demand for increased trade resulting in more cargo and for the rapid migration to larger vessels carrying that cargo. To date, the Port Authority has invested nearly $6 billion in new infrastructure and plans another $1.2 billion investment in the next several years. Port tenants have also been investing to improve their ability to expand with nearly $2 billion of private investment to date and another $1 billion underway.
As a landlord Port, the Port Authority leases property to tenants that operate Port facilities. Since we do not directly handle cargo, we must influence the efficiency and productivity of the port in more strategic ways. Today, the challenges in this area continue to grow. Improving Port productivity requires a more collaborative approach. The Port Department has taken a strong leadership role in making the changes necessary to keep the Port of New York and New Jersey highly competitive.
We must also be mindful that the Port must grow in a sustainable way. Port Security and the safety of those who use the Port must remain paramount. If the Port is to grow, it must do so by reducing its environmental footprint. And finally, greater attention must be paid to improved resiliency.
The Port Authority is a unique government body serving both the States of New York and New Jersey and because of the mandate to be financially self-sufficient, increasing revenues while remaining competitive is a major challenge of the Port Department.
Reporting to the Port Department Deputy Director, the Assistant Director, Port Commercial Development provides strategic leadership and ensures the effective coordination and deployment of staff activities in support of Port Leasing and Property Development, Business Development and Industry Relations (Port Marketing) and Intermodal Rail marketing and development. This position is responsible for developing business strategy and for providing guidance to the Director/Deputy Director on the department’s overall business and financial performance.
