San Diego Business Women of the Year

By Karen Robes Meeks

The San Diego Business Journal has named Port of San Diego Real Estate Department Manager Penny Maus one of its Business Women of the Year, an honor bestowed upon 15 honorees selected from 100 finalists.

Now in its 26th years, the award recognizes outstanding female business leaders who have made a difference in San Diego’s workspaces and communities.

“Penny is a doer and it’s no surprise that she’s been chosen as one of the San Diego Business Journal’s 2019 Business Women of the Year,” said Randa Coniglio, Port of San Diego president and CEO. “She works hard to promote development opportunities and attract developers to the San Diego Bay waterfront. In addition to the STAY OPEN proposal, she has been an important part of the team for all of the Port’s major bayfront redevelopment efforts, from Chula Vista to the Embarcadero to Harbor Island. Penny is so deserving of this recognition.”

Maus, who arrived at the port in 2008, oversees 19 real estate assets, including four hotels, six marinas and four stand-alone restaurants on San Diego Bay.
