Meet the Lehigh Valley Business’ Power 100

Let me introduce you to 100 powerful people.

And by powerful, I mean individuals who hold positions that give them the ability to shape our communities and influence our quality of life. To identify them, the editorial staff of Lehigh Valley Business considered those who make our laws, build our homes and highways, protect our health and safety, educate our children, support the vulnerable, and provide the spark that inspires innovation and economic growth. This is not a ranking. There is no score. Our intent is to introduce our readers to the people who make the decisions. To do that, we asked them to introduce themselves, and share something personal, because no matter how high up the ladder they are, they’re all human.
