   A. Paul Anderson took his place this week as commissioner of the Federal Maritime Commission.

   Anderson, who replaced Commissioner Delmond J.H. Won, received a recess appointment from the White House Aug. 22. His term expires June 30, 2007.

   The Senate did not act on his appointment prior to the congressional recess at the beginning of August.

   Prior to joining the FMC, Anderson served nine years as vice president of government relations for JM Family Enterprises, an automobile business based in Deerfield Beach, Fla. From 1987 to 1994, he was director of public affairs for Florida’s Port Everglades. Before that he worked as marketing manager for Hvide Marine (now Seabulk). He also spent several years as special assistant to Sen. Paula Hawkins.
