Pensacola Port Director Amy Miller was elected to chair the Florida Seaport Transportation and Economic Development Council at their meeting in St. Petersburg on Wednesday.
The FSTED Council is comprised of the port directors for Florida’s 15 public seaports, and representatives from the Florida Department of Transportation and the Department of Economic Opportunity. The Council oversees the FSTED Program (Chapter 311, Florida Statutes), a state and local financing program of priority seaport transportation projects. The Florida Ports Council staffs the FSTED Council and administers the FSTED program.
“The FSTED Council is continually committed to identifying and allocating funds to port projects that will enhance the economy and bring jobs and trade to the state of Florida," Miller said. "I am honored to have been elected by my peers to chair this important program.”
Miller has been at the Port of Pensacola for more than 16 years, serving as port director since 2013. She has worked in the maritime industry for 25 years.
