The Trentonian – July 18, 2016
EWING — A national search was conducted to land a founding CEO for Greater Trenton, a nonprofit tasked with revitalizing the capital city.
But members of independent nonprofit — comprised of big players in the region — ultimately found a new leader in their backyard.
George Sowa, who previously served as executive vice present of a company selected to lead the Campbell Soup Company development in Camden, was named Monday as CEO of Greater Trenton. Sowa was born at Helene Fuld Hospital, his grandparents met working at the Cigar Factory and his mother is a graduate of Trenton Central High School, touted NJM CEO Bernie Flynn, who is a co-chair of Greater Trenton.
