Jenkintown, Pennsylvania (October 1, 2014) – Pitcairn, a global leader in the family office and wealth management industry, has been recognized by the Philadelphia Business Journal as one of the region’s “Top 50 Family-Owned Businesses.”
Pitcairn was founded in 1923 by the three sons of industrialist and Pittsburgh Plate Glass (PPG) co-founder, John Pitcairn. “The family’s foresight and willingness to innovate keeps our firm pushing the boundaries of the family wealth industry for the benefit of our clients,” commented President and Chief Executive Officer Leslie Voth. As the family business has evolved over the last nine decades, it has maintained the core values of the founding family while ensuring sustainability for the future.
To qualify for this list, businesses must be at least 51% owned by two or more family members. Ranking is based on the number of local employees. Pitcairn tied for number 30 on the list.
