Board of Port Commissioners Accepts Resignation of Joe Stuyvesant

Media contact: Tanya Castaneda, or 619.764.9874.

The Board of Port Commissioners has accepted the resignation of Joe Stuyvesant, who was appointed President and Chief Executive Officer of the Port of San Diego in February 2021.

Stuyvesant’s official last day is January 21, 2024. Randa Coniglio has been serving as Acting President/CEO and will continue in that role for now.

“We thank Joe Stuyvesant for his service to the Port of San Diego. We wish him well in his future endeavors,” said Frank Urtasun, the Chairman of the Board of Port Commissioners.

Stuyvesant’s contributions to the Port included a settlement with SDG&E that resulted in a written commitment to Port electrification requirements, replacing diesel power to reduce emissions and improve air quality. Stuyvesant also had a leadership role in the development of an innovative program to monetize and leverage Low Carbon Fuel Credits for Navy ships, bringing revenue to the Port. Finally, Stuyvesant was instrumental in negotiating a settlement with the Navy that returns waterfront property on Harbor Drive to the Port.

“It is with gratitude to the Board of Port Commissioners that I close the chapter on my leadership at the Port of San Diego. Without the dedicated staff of professional public servants, there is no Port,” said Joe Stuyvesant. “I look back to my service at the Port with a sense of pride in what we accomplished under the leadership of the Board of Port Commissioners and the entire Port team. While I will miss being part of the Port team, new opportunities have recently presented themselves, and I am excited to pursue them.”
