BOSTON (AP) — The lengthy search for a new director of the Massachusetts Port Authority may have ended.

The Massport Board is expected to vote next week on the selection of Thomas Glynn as chief executive officer of the semi-independent agency that runs Logan International Airport and the Port of Boston.

Glynn’s selection was confirmed by a person in Gov. Deval Patrick’s administration with knowledge of the choice.

The person requested anonymity because the choice had not been officially announced.

The Boston Globe first reported the selection.

Glynn is the former chief operating officer of Partners HealthCare and has also held several government positions, including general manager of the MBTA.

He currently lectures at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.

If approved, Glynn would succeed Thomas Kinton, who stepped down in June 2011.
