Leading The Pennsylvania Chamber into the Future
PA Chamber of Business and Industry Board Chair Nicholas Bertram, who is also President of The GIANT Company, lead the search process.
“When we began the search for Gene’s successor, we knew it would not be an easy task,” said Bertram. “First and foremost, we were looking for an accomplished leader with a deep-rooted love of the Commonwealth, its business community, and families and vast experience in the private and public sectors. Finally, we wanted someone with a visionary mindset, a transformational thinker with the ability to build consensus among multiple audiences and cement Pennsylvania’s reputation as a forward-thinking and frontline advocate for businesses. That individual is, unequivocally, Luke, so it is no surprise that he has the unanimous support of both the search and Chamber executive committees. I’m looking forward to working with him as he champions Pennsylvania’s economy and workforce nationally and globally.”
