George L Sidney, Jr.

President and COO

McLanahan Corporation

George Sidney joined McLanahan Corporation after earning an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering from Penn State. He has done graduate work in mineral processing at Penn State and the Colorado School of Mines, as well as in international business at California Institute of Technology. He worked in sales and engineering before becoming president and COO in 2004.

In addition to being involved in many industry groups and organizations, such as the National Sand, Stone and Gravel Association, Sidney is actively involved in his local community. He is part of the local chamber legislative action committee and is a board member for the Altoona/Blair County Development.

When not participating in industry related events, George enjoys fly fishing, hunting, biking and other outdoor pursuits.

George is married to Leanne and has three children and four wonderful grandchildren.

Sidney believes his community’s potential is blatant.

“I am not sure I would title it ‘hidden potential,’ but without question the greatest asset of our community is its people. We are blessed to live in an area where our workforce understands the meaning of a conscientious day’s work and the responsibility that goes with accepting a task to perform,” he said.
