This month, the Chester County Economic Development Council (CCEDC) concluded its fiscal year. As such, we have had some changes to our board of directors.
Outgoing members include Matt Kreuger of Window Genie and Ray Ott of Ray Ott & Associates.
New members elected for a two-year term include Deb Antonini of Vanguard; Dr. Laurie Bernotsky of West Chester University; Adam Cathers of D2CA Architects, LLC; Laura Bruce of Bryn Mawr Hospital; Pat Scott, Esquire MacElree Harvey; Matt Tevenan of QVC; and James E. Turner of Chester Water Authority.
Ed Brownley of PAC Strapping Products has been named an Honorary Director while Roger Huggins, Esquire of Gawthrop Greenwood and Jim Reading of RedGo Development, have been named Directors Emeritus.
Bill Bogle of Global Market Management, who has served as chairman since July 1, 2015, steps down from this post. He will continue as a board member.
“Bill was a terrific chair and a pleasure to work with,” says CCEDC’s Chief Operating Officer, Mike Grigalonis. “He was, and remains, deeply committed to CCEDC and could not have been more supportive of us as staff. Bill’s tenure was highlighted by the first two years of VISTA implementation, the completion of an important strategic planning effort and, of course, his legendary sense of humor. We’ll miss Bill but know he’ll continue to be involved as a director emeritus and more.”
The officers for the upcoming year include Chairman – Edward J. Breiner of Waln Run Investments, LLC; First Vice Chair – Marian D. Moskowitz of Franklin Commons; Treasurer – Craig A. Styer, Esquire of Fox Rothschild; and Secretary – Bill Stedman of Trion.
“We are fortunate to have such a thoughtful, talented and dedicated Board,” Grigalonis noted. “We know they are absolutely critical to the success of the organization and truly appreciate all that they do. We’ve had some great board leaders over the years and this year is no different with Ed Breiner taking over as chair.”
