The Chester County Economic Development Council’s 17th Annual Economic Outlook – entitled “Impacts of COVID-19 on a Post-Election Economy” – attracted more than 200 local business leaders and professionals during a live, virtual presentation that aired last Friday.

James Glassman, Managing Director and Head Economist for Commercial Banking at JP Morgan Chase, and Patti Brennan, President and CEO at Key Financial, Inc., were the featured speakers.

“This year, hindsight really is 2020,” Brennan said, beginning her presentation after Glassman described the past year as a “Charles Dickens-esque best of times, worst of times.”
