Philly Startup Leaders picks new leaders

Here are all the former and current leaders of the entrepreneurship community group

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.
