Jenkintown, Pennsylvania (October 2, 2015) – Philadelphia Business Journal has again named Pitcairn, a global leader in the family office and wealth management industry, as one of the region’s “Top 50 Family-Owned Businesses.”
Pitcairn was founded in 1923 by the three sons of entrepreneur and Pittsburgh Plate Glass (PPG) co-founder, John Pitcairn. “While honored to qualify as one of Philadelphia’s ‘Top 50’ family-owned and operated business, we at Pitcairn are gratified to be professionally serving not only the Pitcairn family, but a number of other multi-generational families who also benefit from the leadership and foresight provided by our founding family,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Leslie Voth. Sustaining multi-generational families is one of the hallmarks of Pitcairn, with its multi-family office providing guidance, expertise and tools for our client families to use in preserving their success through generations.
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 was ranked 34 on the “Top 50” list.
