PA Business Central - Top 100 People 2015

Original Link

For more than 20 years, the Pennsylvania Business Central has entered the new year by celebrating the top 100 people in its expanding readership that have accomplished both personal and financial success with an honest sense of direction imbued in them by mentors, personal experiences, failures and successes.

Our editorial team once again had hundreds of nominations to select from to form this year’s list.

Narrowing the total number of nominees down to 100 proved to be difficult as there are so many people in Pennsylvania working hard to create jobs, expand communities and lend a hand to their neighbors.

In the spirit of finding one’s direction, we asked all finalists what their first job was and how it affected them personally and professionally. The results are inspiring yet grounding. As we read the story of every finalist, we developed a fuller picture of how success starts from humble beginnings.

Of course no one’s success is entirely their own. Many of those selected had the benefits of supportive financially- stable families and moved forward in their careers with certain privileges that never come to many in this world. But if you step away from the big picture and instead focus on each individual life, you will see human beings who have not only made the most of what they have been given, but have also spread that success to their community and to those in need.

These worthy nominees set themselves apart throughout the year with their corporate leadership, community involvement and contributions to the business sector.
