A panel of independent judges has chosen AnnieMac Home Mortgage President and CEO Joseph Panebianco as a finalist for 2017 Entrepreneur of the Year in the Greater Philadelphia Region.
The prestigious awards program, in its 31st year, recognizes entrepreneurs who excel in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
Joseph said he’s very pleased with the recognition, which comes at a time when AnnieMac Home Mortgage is poised to introduce some initiatives that he expects will take it to new levels of success. He was quick to emphasize that it reflects on the efforts of employees throughout the company.
“I am very grateful to have such hard-working, dedicated and culturally additive people working at AnnieMac,” Joseph said.
Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at the Kimmel Center for Performing Arts, Perelman Theater Plaza, in Philadelphia.
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration in the Entrepreneur Of The Year National competition, which culminates with an awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 18, 2017.

In Greater Philadelphia, sponsors also include PNC, Pine Hill Group, Murray Devine, SolomonEdwardsGroup, BallardSpahr, Morgan Lewis, Pepper Hamilton, Philadelphia Business Journal and Simkiss & Block.
