For the first time since its creation in 2007, Philly Startup Leaders is getting new leadership.
Announced on Monday, all but one of the startup community group’s seven executives will be replaced in a move that PSL has been orchestrating for months.
“These leaders will join the current team for a transition period of three to six months. Then some of the Philly Startup Leaders founders will ‘retire’ to the Board of Directors,” wrote former president and PSL co-founder Blake Jennelle. “Growing ‘startup old’ isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.”
After the jump, we take a closer look at the new executive board.
President of Green Konnect, Detweiler will be helming PSL while still maintaining his previous role as membership director.
New: Cody Ray, Drexel
Old: Chris Cera, Vuzit
New: Josiah Kiehl, Oracle
New: Matt Owens
New: none (PSL is still searching for a replacement)
Old: Aaron McLean, Eight Eleven
And, according to the email sent to PSL members, below is the current Board of Directors:
