Visions of a World-Class City

by Michelle Boyles

The past year has been a monumental one for the City of Brotherly Love. We continue to strive to expand the scope of health care, encourage technological advancements and enhance the way we educate and embrace our citizens, all while keeping pace with the city’s ever-shifting dynamic.

And, the world has noticed. Philadelphia has been honored by being chosen as the first American World Heritage City, was “blessed” with the first U.S. papal visit since 2008 and selected as the location for the 2016 DNC.

All of these milestones were accomplished not by one individual or one company alone, but rather, they were the culmination of the work of thousands of people who believe in everything this city has to offer and all it has the potential to be.

As a B2B publication, the staff at Philly Biz is dedicated to bringing you news, forecasts and overviews of the local economic landscape that will ensure our readers are equipped with all the pertinent information you need to make the most of doing business in the area. As part of that mission, we often share with you insight into the stories of the area’s most exemplary organizations and those who make up their executive teams.

This month, for our second annual Vision of A World-Class City edition, we asked 23 titans of industry to share with you their vision of what it will take to sustain Philadelphia’s momentum and assure its legacy on a national stage.

The pages that follow present hopes and challenges, tales of hardship and triumph, staggering statistics and lofty goals. They also weave a story of a fiercely independent city’s perseverance, of its refusal to be limited or categorized, its continuing drive toward the future.

But the overarching theme in each of these essays is in recognition of the fact that there can be no one left behind. We can only achieve this Vision by working together, as only Philadelphia can.
