Eight influential leaders with ties to Chester County are among the region’s Power 100 for 2022, writes Ryan Sharrow for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
The list features individuals in alphabetical order with the influence, skill, and effectiveness to provide them with the power to shape the look and feel of the entire Philadelphia region and their industries for years to come.
Leading the list is Tim Buckley, the Vanguard CEO who just completed his fourth year of successfully leading the largest mutual fund provider in the world.
As president of West Chester University, Christopher Fiorentino leads the only school in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education that is growing.
Also featured are Rodger Levenson and David Rawlinson II.
Levenson began his fourth year as WSFS Bank CEO by closing the $910 million acquisition of Bryn Mawr Trust. As the new president of QVC and parent company Qurate Retail Group, Rawlinson became one of the region’s few minority CEOs of public companies when he took over in October.
Paul Redman, the CEO of Longwood Gardens, is also on the list, along with Sam Sidhu, the CEO of Phoenixville-based Customers Bank.
Gary Smith, CEO of the Chester County Economic Development Council, and Henderson High School graduate Jason Wingard, the president of Temple University, made the list as well.
