Thirty six regional CEOs are part of a task force to get the Greater Philadelphia economy going again following the effects of COVID-19, writes Kennedy Rose for Philadelphia Business Journal.
It is a partnership between the state of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Delaware, Chester, Montgomery and Bucks counties.
Other components of the Philadelphia Regional Recharge and Recovery Task Force include The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia and local governments. They will look at the resources needed to spur a business recovery.
Its members include Chris Gheysens of Wawa, Comcast Corp. executive David L. Cohen, restauranteur Ellen Yin and Jack Lynch, CEO of Main Line Health.
“We can leverage our strengths and safeguard our competitive advantages,” said Daniel J. Hilferty, CEO of Independence Health Group and chair of the chamber, in a statement. “We will build a stronger Greater Philadelphia, with growth in every neighborhood, in the post-pandemic global economy.”
The task force will focus on higher education, small and midsize companies, hospitality/tourism/arts and culture, health care delivery, financial services, tech, media and telecom; life sciences and talent/workforce.
Part of its mission is to make sure economic benefits reach everyone and that local businesses and regional governments work together to address systemic economic inequality.
