The Port of Corpus Christi named Cindy Bertolami as chief financial officer. She has been interim CFO for the past six months and is replacing Kent Britton, who was appointed CEO in September.
Bertolami was previously the director of finance for the port and has over 20 years in leadership positions within the financial sector. In her new role, she will be managing the real estate, information technology, finance, accounting, procurement and risk management departments.
“Cindy brings a wealth of knowledge to her new role as Chief Financial Officer that will be a strong benefit to the Port of Corpus Christi team and our customers,” Britton said in a statement.
As the director of finance, Bertolami helped finalize the port’s annual comprehensive financial report, streamlined financial accounting procedures for more efficiency and oversaw the transition of timekeeping and financial software as the project manager. She also helped secure the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada.
“I look forward to working alongside our executive leadership team and staff, as well as supporting our strong and expanding customer base, to ensure continued success in the future,” Bertolami said in a statement.
