TICO Canada takes Taddeo aboard as chairman

Montreal — Dominic J. Taddeo has been appointed chairman of TICO Canada Intermodal Equipment Solutions Inc.

He was previously president and CEO of the Montreal Port Authority, a position he held for 23 years before retiring last fall. The appointment is effective June 1.

Taddeo has joined the Canadian distributor for Terminal Investment Corporation (TICO), based in Savannah, Ga. Its been building terminal tractors for many years but, until recently, only for use in its own main business — outsourced terminal-management services (it’s a major player in U.S. ports on the east and Gulf coasts).

The company operates more than 1,200 of these vehicles and is said to run the largest such fleet in the world. They’ve been available in Canada since March.

“I am really pleased that Dominic has accepted to join the TICO Group,” said Aidan S. Bolger, president and majority shareholder of TICO Canada. “As we increase our focus on expanding our presence in ports and terminals throughout Canada and across other North American markets, his leadership, experience of port management and extensive knowledge of the shipping industry will complement our team’s unique expertise in terminal, intermodal and equipment services and solutions.”

Taddeo has spent more than 36 years in the shipping industry and has served as chairman of the board of the Association of Canadian Port Authorities (1982-1983 and 2006-2007), the American Association of Port Authorities (1989-1990), and the International Association of Ports and Harbours (1999-2001).  He has also received several industry recognitions, including the 2007 CMC Lifetime Achievement Award from Canadian Sailings and the Journal of Commerce, and a special Medal of Merit from the Association of Canadian Port Authorities.
