Otero will also implement Crowley's planned Ro/Ro service enhancements to the countries. As a bilingual, English-Spanish, communicator he is well suited to serve the needs of customers in the trades.

Otero will remain domiciled in the company's Jacksonville office and report to John Hourihan, senior vice president and general manager of Latin America services.

Otero started his career as a senior accountant at Crowley in 1998 after working several years for the accounting firm, Deloitte & Touche. He has held several different positions of increasing responsibility, including accounting manager, finance director and, most recently vice president, finance and planning for the liner and logistics business units.
