CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - The Delaware River Port Authority has tapped its top financial official to be the agency’s interim chief executive.

The DRPA’s Board of Commissioners announced the appointment of John Hanson on Wednesday. He will replace John Matheussen, who is leaving Friday to become a state Superior Court judge.

Hanson, a 53-year-old certified public accountant from Cherry Hill, is a former DRPA board member and a former chairman of the Camden County Republican Party. He has been the agency’s chief financial officer since 2004.

Jim White, the DRPA’s director of finance, will become its interim chief financial officer.

The DRPA runs four Philadelphia-area bridges connecting New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and the PATCO commuter train.

DRPA officials say the search for a permanent replacement CEO will take at least 30 days.
