The Delaware River Port Authority (DRPA) board has appointed Maria Wing deputy chief executive officer.

A Philadelphia attorney, Wing brings more than 10 years of legal experience in commercial real estate development and financing, portfolio acquisition, and municipal matters pertaining to property-tax assessments and code compliance, DRPA officials said in a news release.

She's worked for nonprofit corporations, charter schools, universities, private developers and financial institutions.

Since 2006, Wing has served as counsel at the law firm of Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young LLP.

Meanwhile, the board of the Houston's Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County voted to approve a new two-year contract for the agency's current President and CEO Tom Lambert.

The contract would include annual reviews of performance conducted by the board, along with a buyout provision for termination without cause.
