NORFOLK (AP) -- The man who led Virginia Port Authority's Board of Commissioners through the recent privatization-review process is leaving the board.
Officials announced Friday that William H. Fralin Jr. was stepping down from the board, effective immediately.
Fralin served on the board a little more than two years. He was appointed by Gov. Bob McDonnell in July 2011 to a five-year term as part of an overhaul of the panel.
The Virginian-Pilot reports (http://bit.ly/17vpVkX) that Fralin became chairman of the board on Nov. 27, 2012.
He held the position until July 31, when he was succeeded by Jeffrey Wassmer, CEO of a Newport News-based defense-contracting firm.
Fralin is president and CEO of Medical Facilities of America in Roanoke.
