Winston named as new president and CEO of Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority

The Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority’s board of directors voted unanimously to promote current vice president of administration and chief financial officer Thomas Winston to its top leadership role, The Toledo Blade reports. President and CEO Paul Toth will retire after leading the authority since 2009, and Winston will assume that role beginning September 1, 2019. The port board formed a search committee late last year, but “quickly identified Mr. Winston as its top candidate and scrapped plans to conduct a national search,” according to the article. Port board vice chairman Sharon Speyer said Winston is passionate about the community and has the skill set and vision to execute today and “in the next 10 years from an economic development standpoint.” DevelopOhio and Bricker & Eckler LLP congratulate Thomas Winston on his new position.
