    Fort Lauderdale mayor joins company executives on PEA’s Aug. 9 program at Tropical Acres


    A must-attend blockbuster program is on tap as Port Everglades Association shifts its monthly luncheon meetings to Tropical Acres Steakhouse on Friday, Aug. 9.

    Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis is to be joined by chief executives of three leading maritime and construction companies for a future-focused discussion titled “2020 411,” while PEA members and guests enjoy a gourmet meal featuring shrimp cocktail, New York strip steak and cherry cheesecake.

    Luncheon program sponsors include PEA members LSN Partners and ILA Local 1526 and a champagne toast will be sponsored by Longitude Surveyors. And Silversea Cruises is donating a one-week luxury cruise for the raffle, benefitting the Seafarers’ House at Port Everglades.

    Mayor Trantalis, who assumed his present office in March 2018 following service on the Fort Lauderdale City Commission, is to offer insights on hopes, expectations and challenges.

    Maritime and construction chief executives on the program are:

    • Rodney Corrigan, president of LOGISTEC Stevedoring Inc., which provides services at more than 60 North American port terminals;
    • Mike LaFleur, chief executive officer of SEACOR Island Lines LLC, a regional Bahamian-Caribbean container service arm of SEACOR Holdings;
    • Jeff Bobolts, regional president for the Florida Region of CEMEX, a global building materials leader serving customers in more than 50 countries; and 
    • Alexandra Anagnostis-Irons, founder and president of environmental services provider Total Marine Solutions Inc., as discussion facilitator.

    The “2020 411” program is to take place Friday, Aug. 9, from 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Tropical Acres Steakhouse, 2500 Griffin Road.
