The Chester County Chamber of Business and Industry has honored Exelon and PECO veteran Denis O’Brien as its 2018 Executive of the Year, writes Fran Maye for the Daily Local News.
The award was presented last Thursday during the CCCBI’s annual dinner at Longwood Gardens, with more than 300 people in attendance. O’Brien, who was appointed PECO president in 2003 and president and CEO four years later, was honored for making a positive impact on the region with his civic leadership.
“Chester County is one of the fastest-growing counties in Pennsylvania, and in order to meet that growth, we have invested hundreds of millions of dollars in advanced energy infrastructure and improvements to bring electricity and natural gas to homes and businesses,” said O’Brien.
He said that PECO understands the importance of land conservation to many Chester County residents.
“We are thinking big, and we are thinking big with you,” he said.
In its 14 years, PECO Green Region has presented $1.75 million to municipalities and nonprofits. The communities that have received grants cover 75 percent of the five-county region’s residents.
