Exton Region Chamber of Commerce

Citing a long and distinguished career of outreach, the Exton Region Chamber of Commerce recently bestowed the 2017 Senator Robert J. Thompson Public Service Award on Chester County Sheriff Carolyn “Bunny” Welsh.

State Rep. Becky Corbin, a past recipient, presented the award at the ERCC Annual Review Luncheon at the Desmond Hotel and Conference Center in Malvern.

Corbin detailed a litany of Welsh’s outstanding achievements, ranging from her election as the first female sheriff in Chester County to her leadership roles with state and national law-enforcement agencies.

“She’s great at building bridges,” Corbin said.

Jeannie McGinn, an ERCC member, said, “Sheriff Bunny is a civil servant who embodies what it means to ‘walk the talk’ and serves all the citizens of Chester County in the highest, most honorable fashion.”

Christine Miles is the newest host for Executive Leaders Radio, a weekly radio show that is broadcast nationally on 91 terrestrial and Internet radio stations.

Miles is the chief architect and co-founder of the sales training company CI Squared, based in St. Davids. She had been a “host-in-training” with the weekly radio program since January 2017.

“We know Christine will add a distinct and profound dimension to the quality of our interviews, and we look forward to working with her for a long time to come,” said Rachel Blumenthal, president and executive producer of Executive Leaders Radio.

Each interview on the program is long enough to provide listeners with a clear sense of each CEO’s story of success, yet short enough to enable the CEOs to relax and share their secrets without preparation.

Malvern-based Endo has been issued a grand-jury subpoena by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida that asks for information about opioid-related products, writes Allison Prang for The Wall Street Journal.

The government is asking for documents about a range of details, including abuse, overdoses, efficacy, addictiveness, and withdrawal.

According to Endo, it “intends to be responsive to the subpoena and cooperate with any related government investigation.”
