Anthony Chiarello has announced he will be retiring this summer as President and CEO of leading US domestic carrier Tote Inc.
Chiarello, aged 62, has been at the helm of the Jones Act-compliant firm since August 2010 and has an almost 39-year resume in the industry.
Tote parent company Saltchuk says an announcement about his successor will be forthcoming.
During his tenure at Tote, Chiarello presided over the most tragic incident in the company’s history, the October 2015 sinking of the cargo ship El Faro with the loss of all 33 crew.
He began his career stevedoring at ITO in the Port of New York, became Deputy Administrator of the Maryland Port Administration, spent 16 years in various roles with the Maersk organization and was COO and Executive VP of NYK Logistics (Americas).
