Flavio Batista, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Georgia Port Authority (GPA), is the featured guest speaker of CCA Skidaway’s seminar on March 11 starting at 7 p.m. at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church (3 Ridge Road).

The Port of Savannah is the largest and fastest growing container terminal in America. Since 1945, Georgia’s ports have served as magnets for international trade and investment, enriching the state’s economy to benefit all Georgians. The Georgia Ports Authority is dedicated to providing customers with the most efficient, productive port facilities in the nation, and to creating jobs and business opportunities to benefit more than 9.7 million Georgians.

Batista will bring us up to date on the improvements and expansions of the Port and its commitment to maintaining its competitive edge through development of leading-edge technology, marketing and operations to move cargo faster. He also will share details on how it is working hard to identify what must be done today to sustain growth, performance and security for tomorrow.

 Batista serves an 1,800-person strong state authority which owns and operates strategic port terminals on the East Coast, serving as a global gateway for international trade and investment. In his role at GPA, he directs trade, business development, and sales efforts toward beneficial cargo owners. His passion for finding end-to-end solutions for customers, combined with more than two decades of maritime industry experience, drives his work promoting Georgia Ports.

The CCA’s raffle prize for March is a fishing rod-and-reel and tackle box a $300 value.
