Friday, April 5, 2013

PHILADELPHIA (April 5, 2013) — The Haub School of Business will recognize Joseph J. McLaughlin Jr. '81, chairman and CEO of The Haverford Trust Company, with this year’s Hall of Fame Award. McLaughlin will receive the award during a dinner reception at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel on Wednesday, April 17 at 6 p.m.

Soon after beginning his career as a certified public accountant with Peat Marwick Mitchell & Co., McLaughlin quickly ascended to vice president with J.P. Morgan & Co. in 1988 before joining The Haverford Trust Company in 1992. He was appointed to president in 1998, then chairman and CEO in 2008. In tandem with his management team, they rebuilt The Haverford Trust Company from $900 million in assets under management in 1997 to over $6 billion today, encompassing high quality equity, fixed income securities and exchange traded funds.

A widely respected leader with more than 25 years of financial services experience, McLaughlin says he attributes his success to the values emphasized by his parents and reinforced at Saint Joseph’s University, which helped him establish a career in an industry that he loves, and working with an outstanding team of people.

“There is a distinguished group of people who’ve been honored in this way in the past, and I’m very thankful at my good fortune to be joining them,” he says of the Haub Hall of Fame award.

A member of Saint Joseph’s Board of Trustees, McLaughlin sits on its finance, marketing and communications, investment, and banking committees. He is co-chairman of the University’s financial services alumni chapter, and he and his wife, Ellen, are members of the University’s Loyola Society executive council and Magis Society. McLaughlin is also the past chairman of the Haub School of Business Board of Visitors.

“Perhaps the most meaningful of Joe’s contributions is the incredible work he does with our students,” says Joseph A. DiAngelo Jr., Ed.D. ’70, dean of the Haub School of Business. “His support, whether it’s through scholarships, internships, guest lectures, or mentorship has been a tremendous value to the Haub School. It’s an honor to celebrate someone who has shown exceptional leadership both in his career and in his dedicated service to the University.”

McLaughlin is the 27th recipient of the Hall of Fame award and joins an impressive list of successful recipients who have expertly shaped the business world.

McLaughlin and his wife reside in Media, Pa., with their sons, Eric, Alex and Joe, a current student at Saint Joseph’s.
