Steve Scalzo Promoted To General Manager- Marine Operations At Fo
Steve Scalzo, former port captain f o r Foss Launch & Tug Company, Seattle, Wash., has been promoted to general manager of marine operations. As part of his new assignment, Mr. Scalzo will be in charge of all Puget Sound marine operations f o r Foss as well as marine operations of Dillingham's Ocean Division, and will report to Jack D. Minkler, senior vice president of Operations.
In announcing the appointment, Bruce Robeson, Foss president, said the new position was created to provide more overall coordination of the company's equipment and services. According to Mr.
Robeson, the company is adding new tugboats, chip barges and petroleum barges to its fleet and this new equipment coming onstream, together with concern for energy supplies, made necessary the consolidation of marine operations into one department. "Having Foss and Ocean Division operations under one roof gives us more flexibility in vessel utilization," he added.
The managers of marine operations f o r both Foss Launch & Tug Company and the Ocean Division will report to Mr. Scalzo in his new position. In addition, Mr.
Scalzo will be r e s p o n s i b l e f or overall dispatching functions in the Puget Sound region.
As port captain f o r Puget Sound operations, Mr. Scalzo supervised vessel crews, and coordinated vessel scheduling and use of bunker barges. For the time being, Mr.
Scalzo will continue with his port captain responsibilities in addition to his new duties as general manager of marine operations.
No newcomer to the maritime business, Mr. Scalzo has been with Foss since 1975. He graduated from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, N.Y., in 1970, with a Bachelor of Science degree in marine transportation.
He holds degrees in both law and in business and commerce from Gonzaga University, and served as a deck officer for Standard Oil's Chevron Shipping Company.
Mr. Scalzo is a vice chairman of the Maritime Committee of the Seattle Chamber of Commerce, and a member of The Propeller Club.
