Welcome to the third annual Interview Issue

Some of 2017's newsmakers included (clockwise from top right): John Standley, CEO of Rite Aid Corp.; Ellen Kyzer, CEO & president of Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania; Conrad Siegel; S. Dale High and Robin Stauffer of the S. Dale High Family Foundation; and Amanda Arbour, executive director of the LGBT Center of Central Pennsylvania.

The last 12 months have delivered profound change for many local institutions.

In this third edition of the Central Penn Business Journal’s annual interview issue, we go one-on-one with some of the people at the forefront of that change.

Not surprisingly, two of our interview subjects come the transforming world of health care: John Standley, CEO of Rite Aid Corp.; and Dr. James Raczek, the new chief medical officer for UPMC Pinnacle, formed from the union of Pittsburgh-based UPMC and Harrisburg-based PinnacleHealth.

We also sat down with two of the region’s longest-serving business leaders to gain some valuable insights into our communities and companies: S. Dale High of Lancaster County-based High Companies; and Conrad Siegel of Dauphin County-based Conrad Siegel Actuaries. High was joined by Robin Stauffer, executive director of the S. Dale High Family Foundation. 

Rounding out the group are Ellen Kyzer, who has been making strides as president and CEO of Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania, and Amanda Arbour, who is leading the LGBT Center of Central Pennsylvania at a time when LGBT rights are at the forefront of state and national debates.

We hope these interviews offer you fresh insights into the people and issues affecting our region. Look for more in the days ahead.
