President of New York Shipping Association

Key role: I am responsible for implementing the collective bargaining agreement between the members of NYSA and the New York and New Jersey locals of the International Longshoreman's Association. Before coming into this role, I supported the negotiation of a new six-year contract.

Goals: The Port of New York and New Jersey is the largest port on the East Coast but we can do more to compete with other ports and attract even more shipping vessels. With regional and infrastructure investments and international projects like the Panama Canal expansion, there will soon be an opportunity for larger cargo ships to call here. My goal is to make New York and New Jersey the most productive port in North America.

Previous jobs: I served as senior vice president of corporate operations at Hapag-Lloyd (America) Inc., and was responsible for all operations of North America, South America and the Caribbean. I was with Hapag-Lloyd for 18 years.

Key strengths: I consider myself a logical thinker and problem solver who considers other's objectives and find solutions that benefit both parties.

Career high: My career high came in April, when the NYSA and the ILA concluded a new collective bargaining agreement.

After hours: Watching my son's high school and travel baseball teams. I like to play golf, which is a family sport at the Nardi household.
