Year after year, it has been Pennsylvania Business Central’s honor to celebrate the top 100 people in business and economic development who have learned through failures and successes how to develop both their organizations and communities.

To gain insight into how these industry leaders have learned through experience, we asked each one to name a mistake they have made in the past and how they have learned from it. How each selectee reacted to the mistakes in the past reveals how important real-life experience is to developing both the acumen and wherewithal to make it in business. It is our hope that after reading the profiles, you will realize that people are not defined by their mistakes nearly as much as by their ability to recover and learn from them.

To see how they would like to apply their expertise to their community, we asked each selectee what they believe the hidden potential of their community is and how they will help to realize it. Pennsylvania is made up of hard-working communities and we believe that the Commonwealth will continue to grow with the leadership exemplified in this edition.

Our editorial team once again had hundreds of nominations to select from to form this year’s list. Narrowing the total number of nominees down to 100 proved to be as difficult as ever.

Wehopethatthefinallistrepresents corporations and organizations large and small while also covering every region of our readership. Readers will see that whether you are a small tech company in Centre County or a paper manufacturer in Lewistown, there are always ways to excel in your field and help your community grow.

Now that this latest edition of Top 100 People is finalized, Pennsylvania Business Central is moving on to finalizing the list of Top 100 Organizations, which will be published in February.

Todd Brice

President and CEO

S&T Bancorp, Inc.

Todd Brice is president and CEO of S&T Bancorp, Inc. and serves as a member of their board of directors. He joined S&T Bank in 1984 and is a seasoned banking professional with expertise in every facet of the financial industry.

Prior to his appointment as president and CEO, Brice served as president and COO where he was responsible for the oversight of day- to-day activities and managed insurance, wealth management, commercial lending and retail activities for S&T Bank branches in 16 western Pa. counties.

Brice earned a bachelor of arts in business administration from Grove City College and attended the graduate school of banking at the University of Wisconsin. From his college years to where he is now, Brice learned from mistakes he made early on in his career.

“As a young professional, it can be easy to get caught up in the pressure of making quick decisions, however, I’ve learned the best decisions are made after first taking the time to gather all the facts and fully understand the situation at hand,” Brice said.

Brice is an active member of his community and serves on the board of directors for the Indiana Regional Medical Center, Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce, the Pennsylvania Mountain Care Network and is a member of the Pittsburgh chapter of the World Presidents’ Organization.
