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.
