The Port Authority of Allegheny County board of directors terminated Steve Bland's contract as CEO, effective immediately. The board named Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Ellen McLean as the interim CEO while it conducts a search for qualified candidates.

McLean has served as CFO since October 2010 and supervises multiple departments, including Financial Planning and Budgets, Grants and Capital Programs, Accounting and Treasury, Information Technology and Purchasing/Materials Management.

Before joining Port Authority, McLean was managing director for Infrastructure Initiatives at the Urban Land Institute in Washington, D.C., and served as the CFO for the City of Pittsburgh from 1999 to 2005 during the administration of Mayor Tom Murphy. She was responsible for managing Pittsburgh’s $450 million budget, and served as executive director of the city’s Comprehensive Municipal Pension Trust Fund and treasurer of the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority.
