Posted on February 7, 2013

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. Additionally, she serves as trustee for the agency’s three pension plans.

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.

Prior to that, McLean served as the city’s assistant director for the Office of Management and Budget, and assistant director of the Finance Department.
