The Port of Corpus Christi has appointed Cindy Bertolami as its new Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
Bertolami succeeds Kent Britton, who was appointed Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in September. Previously, Bertolami served four years as Director of Finance for the Port of Corpus Christi.
She has more than 20 years of experience in financial leadership roles and has served as Interim CFO since September.
As CFO, Bertolami will oversee the port’s Real Estate, Information Technology, Finance, Accounting, Procurement, and Risk Management departments.
In her prior role as Director of Finance, Bertolami was responsible for a number of duties, including coordinating the completion of the port’s Annual Comprehensive Financial Report, improving efficiencies with financial accounting processes, and serving as Project Manager for timekeeping and financial software transitions.
Under Bertolami’s leadership, the Port of Corpus Christi also maintained a 40-year history of receiving the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada.
“I am honoured to serve as Chief Financial Officer for the Port of Corpus Christi,” said Cindy Bertolami, CFO for the Port of Corpus Christi.
“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.”
“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,” said Kent Britton, CEO for the Port of Corpus Christi.
“I have no doubt she will not only continue this institution’s commitment to financial accountability and transparency, but also continue the push to improve our internal processes and systems.”
