NORFOLK, Va. (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.
