The corporation’s board voted unanimously Friday to offer Rodell the job. The corporation says the selection is contingent upon the successful negotiation of a salary and benefits package.

Rodell served as a revenue commissioner under Gov. Sean Parnell and was one of four finalists to head the corporation. The other candidates were Brian Rogers; Alexander Slivka and Glenn Cipriano.

The previous CEO, Mike Burns, retired this spring due to health concerns and later died.
