A 'Game Changer' Who Made It All Happen

Frank Giordano
The Camden County Regional Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present another Game Changer Series Interview. Frank Giordano, Moorestown, NJ resident and President & CEO of The Philly POPS, will be in the spotlight for this stimulating discussion conducted by Dr. Michael Williams of Thomas Edison State University on Friday, February 10, 2017 from 7:30 to 9 a.m. The program will be held at the ML Hotel, 973 Route 73 in Mt. Laurel, NJ. The cost is $40 for preregistered Chamber members & $50 for public attendees & walk-ins. Contact to register and for more information.

In this breakfast discussion, Giordano will share insight into his dual career as he is the President & CEO of Atlantic Trailer Leasing Corporation and the President & CEO of The Philly POPS orchestra, America’s largest standalone pops orchestra. Giordano says, “I like to say I went from the trucking business to show business.” Giordano, who grew up in Cherry Hill, NJ, has led The Philly POPS to unprecedented success in ticket sales, contributed revenue, community engagement and programming.

Supporting the community has always been of importance to Frank. He has served the public through his leadership and personal philanthropy in many iconic Philadelphia-area institutions, including Rowan University, Rutgers, Il Convivio, Inc., Salvation Army New Jersey, and the Philadelphia Business Council for the Consulate General of Italy. Frank has received many honors and awards for his work, including the prestigious Order of the Merit of the Italian Republic by the Ambassador of Italy, the Philadelphia Business Hall of Fame Award, the Philadelphia Music Alliance's inaugural Platinum Award, and a City Council of Philadelphia Citation.
