On Jan. 1, WSFS Chairman, President and CEO Mark A. Turner turned over the reins to Rodger Levenson and became executive chairman of the company’s board of directors (with Lead Independent Director Eleuthère I. du Pont).

Turner, a lifelong resident of the Delaware Valley with a bachelor’s degree from LaSalle University and an MBA from The Wharton School, was appointed president and CEO of WSFS in April 2007 and served as in management for more than 22 years, including two decades as a member of the executive leadership team.
