Madeleine Paquin to receive
International Maritime Hall of Fame Award
Madeleine Paquin, President and CEO of Logistec Corporation since 1996, will be one of five recipients of the Annual International Maritime Hall of Fame award founded in 1991 by the Maritime Association of the Port of New York and New Jersey. Ms. Paquin is the first Canadian marine industry executive to have been selected for the prestigious award. It will be handed out on May 10 in New York at the Association's annual dinner.
The award recognizes "maritime visionaries who through their excellence in their company, organization or services best exemplify the qualities of futuristic thinking that will guide the maritime industry in the 21st century," the Association noted.
A publicly-traded company, Logistec offers specialized services, including cargo-handling in over 30 North American ports and terminals, marine transportation to the Canadian Arctic, and environmental services. Its revenue has more than doubled in the last two years.
The other four recipients will be Harley Franco, Chairman and CEO, Harley Maritime Services; Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and CEO of Navios Maritime Holdings; James McKenna, President and CEO of Pacific Maritime Association; and Jean-Jacques Ruest, Executive Vice-President and Chief Marketing Officer of Canadian National Railway.
