By Karen Robes Meeks

Dionne Denson is the Port of Portland’s new Chief Financial Officer, it was announced Thursday.

Denson, who will start on June 10, will oversee the port’s accounting, finance, budget management, audit and risk.

Denson has spent the last eight years at the Georgia Department of Public Health, where she recently served as Deputy Commissioner and Chief Financial Officer managing a $600 million budget.

“We could not be more excited to have someone as impressive as Dionne join our Executive Team,” said Port Executive Director Curtis Robinhold. “Not only will she bring proven financial skills and thoughtful leadership, she has a deep commitment to promoting service and inclusion, which are critical values to us at the port.”
