Kathy Clupper echoed those thoughts. "It has always been important to me to contribute in a meaningful way to my community, and I am honored to be recognized with this award," she said.

Kathy has been a Managing Director of PFM, the nation's leading provider or independent financial and investment advisory services, since 2007. She joined the firm's Financial Advisory Practice as a Senior Managing Consultant in 2003.

Kathy works with a broad range of state-level and large issuers in the MidAtlantic region and also assists in the management and development of non-profit and higher education clients in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. PFM currently employs more than 430 professionals serving a broad base of clients from 34 offices located in every region of the country. The firm is well respected for providing clients with independent advisory services free of conflicts in their dealings with the capital markets. For the first nine months of 2010, Public Financial Management retained its position as the top ranked financial advisor in the nation in overall new issues.

Committed to the City of Philadelphia and its neighborhoods, Kathy has been active for well over fifteen years as a dedicated member of several boards, including the Ogontz Avenue Revitalization Corporation (OARC), the People's Emergency Center Community Development Corporation and the PEC Finance Committee, and, most recently, as co-founder of a women's municipal finance organization called "Ladies First."

Presented by Wachovia, A Wells Fargo Company, the event in November will gather over 500 of the region's newsmakers for networking and an inspiring awards ceremony.
