New CFO at Port of San Diego

Robert “Bob” DeAngelis has been appointed Chief Financial Officer/Treasurer for the Port of San Diego. He took the oath of office during the San Diego Board of Port Commissioners’ Tues., April 9, 2013 meeting.

“I’m looking forward to joining the executive leadership team of the Port of San Diego,” DeAngelis said. “This is a unique opportunity to work for a public-service agency that serves as an economic engine for the San Diego region and enhances the surrounding communities in so many essential ways.”

DeAngelis will oversee the port’s Financial Services and Accounting and Business and Information Technology Services divisions. He succeeds Jeff McEntee, who’s retiring in May after 25 years with the port. He had held the CFO/Treasurer role since 2001.

DeAngelis is moving to San Diego from Utah, where he was a Senior Vice President, Operations Reporting at Teleperformance, an international business provider of customer service and technical support. His prior experience included CFO for a Teleperformance subsidiary, Vice President, Finance for and working for accounting firm KPMG, all in the Philadelphia area.

He earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Accounting from Temple University and became a Certified Public Accountant.

“We were impressed with his experience leading finance and operations for domestic and international companies, both publicly and privately held,” POSD President and CEO Wayne Darbeau said of why DeAngelis was chosen.

The retiring McEntee joined the port in 1988. Prior to becoming the CFO/Treasurer, he was the Director of Audit, Risk Management & Safety and the Senior Director, Business & Financial Services.
He leaves the port with low debt levels and A+ credit ratings from both Fitch and Standard & Poors.
