Puerto Rico Ports Authority board members last week called for the resignation of executive director Alvaro Pilar.
Arnaldo DeLeo, the agency’s aviation director, will now serve as acting executive director. The PRPA oversees 11 airports, including San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport, and nine maritime ports. Gov. Luis Fortuño picked Pilar to be executive director shortly after taking office in January 2009.
