JAXPORT Chief Operating Officer Frederick P. Wong Jr. has been selected to serve as a member of Leadership Florida Cornerstone Class 39. The program is offered through the statewide mentoring organization Leadership Florida and brings emerging leaders from around the state together to educate and inspire them to work for a better Florida.

Wong is one of 55 members of the 2020-2021 Cornerstone Class. The nine-month long educational program focuses on issues critical to Florida, information on the state’s history, demography, diversities, challenges, and opportunities, and includes mentoring with leading experts.

“Leadership Florida is one of the country’s most prestigious leadership development programs and I am honored to be a part of this year’s Cornerstone Class,” said Wong. “I look forward to learning from the program’s mentors and my fellow classmates, sharing my thoughts and ideas, and working together to help build a better future for our region and state.”

As Chief Operating Officer, Wong oversees JAXPORT’s terminal operations, public safety and engineering departments. Among the port’s major initiatives within his area of responsibility are the deepening of the Jacksonville Harbor and expansion of the port’s auto handling capacity.

The over 3,100 graduates of Leadership Florida programs are men and women who serve as public servants and executives from some of the state’s top corporations, non-profit groups, and other agencies. Learn more about the program.
