Kopp to lead Philadelphia port authority
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett has named Charles Kopp as chairman of the Philadelphia Regional Port Authority.
Kopp is an attorney with the law firm of Cozen O'Connor in Philadelphia.
'Charlie Kopp has the institutional knowledge and expertise needed to guide PRPA's important work,' Corbett said. 'He has earned a well-deserved reputation as a consensus-builder who delivers strong results.'
Kopp previously served on the Delaware River Port Authority, having been appointed to that entity by former Gov. Dick Thornburgh in 1986.
'The future potential of the Philadelphia port is spectacular, and I look forward to working closely with Governor Corbett, public officials in Philadelphia, public officials around Pennsylvania, and other interested parties to reach Governor Corbett’s goal of making the Philadelphia port the finest in the nation,” Kopp said.
