Business leaders recognized

ALTOONA — Area counties were well-represented in Pennsylvania Business Central’s annual Top 100 People list.

A crowd of 20 business leaders from Bedford, Cambria and Somerset counties made the nonprofit’s 2013 list, which was released in January.

And of that mix, a dozen are from Cambria County.

They include: Scott Becker, Conemaugh Health System; William Coward, Cambria-Rowe Business College; Todd Cover, USSCO Federal Credit Union; William Crowe, Miners Medical Center; Robert Eyer, Wessel & Co.; Elmer Laslo, 1st Summit Bank; William Polacek, JWF/Environmental Tank & Container;  Ed Sheehan, Concurrent Technologies Corp; Jem Spectar, University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown; Dale Wicks, Wix Pix Productions; Glenn Wilson, AmeriServ Bank; and the Rev. Gabriel Zeis, St. Francis University.

Five business leaders made the list in Bedford County: Allen Harr, Altoona First Savings Bank; Todd Roadman, Reed Wertz & Roadman; Brian Sell, Bedford County Chamber of Commerce/Bedford Ford; Mike Teeter, REI; and Roger Winn, UPMC Bedford Memorial.

Three Somerset County business people also made the Top 100, although one – Somerset Hospital’s Ron Park – abruptly left that post this week.

Windber Medical Center’s Barabra Cliff and Robert Nutting of Seven Springs Resort were also on the publication’s annual Top 100 list.

Pennsylvania Business Central covers a diagonal stretch of 22 Pennsylvania counties and their business newsmakers from Greene and Washington counties in the southwest to Susquehanna and Bradford in the state’s northeast.
