Kobosky is the manager of port operations at Mosaic’s Big Bend Marine Terminal on Tampa Bay. Under his leadership, the Big Bend Marine Terminal has operated 24 years without a lost time accident and has developed into one of the most efficient bulk handling terminals on Tampa Bay. This March, Ron will celebrate his 30th anniversary with the company.  

Leaders of the Tampa chapter say that Kobosky has been an invaluable volunteer and has worked tirelessly to advance the Propeller Club and increase public awareness of the maritime industry and its relevance to the Tampa Bay economy.

Kobosky’s leadership and enthusiasm have contributed to the Tampa chapter becoming one of the largest and most active Propeller Clubs in the United States, Club President Tony Austin said. Additionally, he has served on a variety of community organizations such as United Way of Tampa and the District VIII Local Emergency Planning Committee and serves as Board Director of the Apollo Beach Chamber of Commerce. Ron also serves on the Coast Guard Foundation’s Dinner Committee and the steering committee for the 84th International Propeller Club Convention.

The International Propeller Club of the United States is a grassroots, non-profit organization, whose membership resides throughout the United States and the world. It is dedicated to the enhancement and well-being of all interests of the maritime community on a national and international basis. The Propeller Club aggressively promotes the maritime industry through many of its programs and partnering with other similar organizations.
