June 11 - The Port of San Diego's board of commissioners is expected to appoint Randa Coniglio as its new president and ceo at a meeting today, June 11.

Coniglio was selected as the top candidate after a rigorous nationwide executive search that began in December 2014.

She currently serves as the port's executive vice president of operations over the departments of real estate, maritime, environmental and land use management, strategy and business development, government and community relations, and marketing and communications.

Coniglio is expected to assume her duties as president and ceo on June 12, which will make her the first female ceo in the port's 52-year history.

John Bolduc, who has been the port's acting ceo since July 2014, will continue to serve on the port's executive leadership team.
