On November 20, 2018, Tony DiLeonardo and Jessica Thornton of Wick Fisher White sat with Matt Cabrey, Executive Director of the Select Greater Philadelphia Council to record an interview about doing business in the Philadelphia Region. The interview highlighted stories about doing construction in the Philadelphia Region and Philadelphia’s buildings – even before they’re built!

Tony and Jessica discussed Wick Fisher White’s long history in the city (since 1901!) and its recent move into the Federal Reserve Bank building from Philadelphia’s iconic Bourse building. They also spoke about the value of a diverse workforce, and the value of networking through different professional organizations, such as GBCA.

We’ll post information about when the interview goes to air!
