The last year has been a period of tremendous change in executive leadership at the Lehigh Valley’s leading companies and largest employers.

There hasn’t been a time during the last 30 years when there has been this much change in a short period of time in the executive leadership of the Lehigh Valley. A new generation of leaders is shaping the future of these companies, and by extension the broader Lehigh Valley economy.

There are new names and faces in the C Suites from B Braun USA, to PPL Corp., and BB&T, to Crayola, and nearly a dozen more. Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation has launched this Executive Series to introduce the Lehigh Valley to a new cadre of corporate leaders.

During these interviews, You will learn who these new executives are, their thoughts on leadership, about the employers they lead and doing business in the Lehigh Valley. The interviews will air on LVEDC social media channels every Thursday and then posted to this event page.
