Paul DeMariano retakes the helm at Everglades

PORT EVERGLADES, Fla. -- Paul DeMariano took the helm as director of the port here, succeeding James O'Brien, who retired in July.

DeMariano's experience includes seven years' prior service as director of the port, during which time he established a separate marketing division focusing on the cruise industry and initiated the building of cruise terminals and the modernization of existing facilities.

DeMariano most recently served as a ports segment director for CH2M Hill, a private firm in Tampa, Fla.

Port Everglades gave up its title as the world's No. 2 cruise port earlier this year to Port Canaveral, which handled 2.7 million cruise passengers in the year ending Sept. 30. Port Everglades expects to handle 2.5 million passengers this year.

Both ports are behind world No. 1 Miami, which will handle about 3.3 million passengers this year.
