The Board of Directors of the Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority (PCCA) today elected Josh Shapiro to serve as the board’s new Vice Chairman. Shapiro replaces John J. McNichol, who is assuming the role of President and CEO of the authority.
Shapiro serves as Chairman of the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners and previously served as State Representative for the 153rd Legislative District in the state House for seven years. As a State Representative, Josh wrote and passed the farthest-reaching ethics laws in a generation to create greater transparency in Pennsylvania government. He established strict new financial controls over state spending and has earned a national reputation as a bipartisan consensus builder.
“I believe in the great promise of the center and the central role it plays in the city and our suburban counties,” said Shapiro. “I look forward to continuing my work of advancing important reforms to help the Center thrive.”
Josh graduated magna cum laude from the University of Rochester, earned a law degree from Georgetown University, and is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar. Josh Shapiro was raised in and lives in Montgomery County. He and his wife Lori reside in Abington Township and have four young children.
