August 26, 2014 - The Erie-Western Pennsylvania Port Authority has announced a new executive director to take over when current executive director, Ray Schreckengost, retires at the end of October. Brenda Sandberg has been appointed to become the next executive director for the Port Authority.

Sandberg is currently the director of economic and community development for the City of Erie. She will begin training under Schreckengost at the beginning of September before taking over when he retires.

The Authority says Schreckengost has been a vital role in the Bayfront’s development over the past twenty years and says his accomplishments can be viewed all across the Bayfront.

Officials say Sandberg was chosen because of her extensive experience. Schreckengost says he will remain in the area to help with upcoming projects, including restaurant spaces at Liberty Park.
