TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (September 26, 2012) – Today, Paul Anderson, Chief Executive Officer of the Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT), was elected chairman of the Florida Ports Financing Commission (FPFC). Created in 1996, the Commission’s purpose is to provide a cost- effective means of financing various capital projects for Florida’s ports by issuing bonds and transferring the proceeds to the individual ports.

“FPFC has funded hundreds of millions of dollars to strategic seaport projects statewide through the financing of two significant bonds since 1996,” said Doug Wheeler, president of the Florida Ports Council, the administrator of the FPFC program. “The same attributes and leadership that have contributed to Paul’s successes in the private and public sector will be invaluable in his service to the FPFC.”
