Philadelphia University has named two new members to serve on its Board of Trustees: apparel industry leader L. Tadd Schwab ’75 and Comcast executive Cynthia Hook.
“We are very pleased to welcome to our Board two new trustees who have distinguished themselves both in their work and civic activities,” said William C. Whitmore Jr., chair of the University’s Board of Trustees. “We’re looking forward to working with them as we continue to reinforce Philadelphia University’s position as the model for professional education, one that gives students a competitive advantage through a novel curriculum based on active, collaborative and real-world learning that is grounded in the liberal arts.”
“Tadd Schwab and Cindi Hook bring much talent and experience to the Board, and we welcome their expertise and contributions as we continue to carry out an ambitious Strategic Plan that includes the innovative new College of Design, Engineering and Commerce,” said Philadelphia University President Stephen Spinelli Jr.
