Pennsylvania Business Central is proud to recognize the Top 100 Organizations for 2017. After receiving a long list of nominees from throughout our 23-county readership, these organizations were selected by an editorial committee due to their positive impacts in the business community of central Pennsylvania.

This year’s Top 100 Organizations are leaders in their chosen fields, bringing new ideas, technology and services to their counties and spheres of influence. With the unpredictability of various markets and the ever-changing fiscal stability of our country, these organizations have shown that smart business practices and shrewd decision- making can make all the difference in surviving unforeseen obstacles. They are examples of not only survival in difficult times, but of excelling through adversity.

Each honoree not only exemplifies the hard work and dedication necessary to move forward and thrive in their specific fields, but also the compassion to make a difference within their communities through volunteer work, outreach and public services. Our honorees come from a wide range of practices, from lumber and landscaping to construction and nonprofits to banks, but each is an example of how to generate success in business without forgetting the people and community who helped them reach it. Connecting with their customers and clients is as important as providing them professional services, and these organizations have collectively donated millions of dollars to various charities and nonprofit organizations.

We raise our metaphorical glasses to the 2017 Top 100 Organizations, and we look forward to seeing how you further influence our lives and communities moving forward in 2018. .

Est. 1933

Opened more than 80 years ago, PSECU was founded by 22 commonwealth employees who made an extraordinary commitment to each other: to create a financial institution where pooled resources benefit all members. From those beginnings – and just $90 – they’ve grown and expanded their eligible member groups. Today, they are Pennsylvania’s largest credit union, proudly serving more than 430,000 members and managing over $5 billion in assets.

PSECU offers full-service banking with low or no fees, expanded digital banking and a portfolio of competitive lending products, and they’re committed to giving their members opportunities to live a better life and strive to provide value to them every day.

In addition to state employees and their families, they offer membership to government units throughout the commonwealth; students, alumni, faculty and staff of all schools in Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education as well as many community colleges and private educational institutions; and around 1,500 Select Employee Groups (SEGs). With so many membership possibilities, you’re likely eligible to join PSECU, even if you don’t know it.

Throughout the years, they’ve continued their founders’ steadfast commitment to help members and their families achieve a better life. In all they do, they aim to follow the “people helping people” credit union philosophy.
