Fall 2012 Soccer & Networking Recap

On Thursday, September 20, 2012, the British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia and Philadelphia Union, along with the Chilean, German and Italian American Chambers of Commerce hosted the Fall 2012 International Networking and Soccer Game event at PPL Park in Chester, PA.

Over 80 people attended, representing the four different international chambers. Refreshments were served as executives from Greater Philadelphia’s leading global businesses networked on the Bridge Deck before Philadelphia Union took the field against D.C. United.

Overlooking the stadium and the Delaware River during a beautiful sunset, Charles Carrington, Partner in the Audit and Enterprise Risk Services Group with Deloitte and Membership Co-Chair of the BABC, greeted guests with opening remarks and introduced keynote speaker, Nick Sakiewicz, CEO and Operating Partner of Philadelphia Union. Attendees also heard from Co-lead sponsors Todd Sturza, Managing Director and Team Leader, National Corporate Banking at TD Bank and BABC Membership Co-Chair, and Scott Johnson, Partner, The McConnell Companies.

In addition to enjoying networking opportunities and delicious refreshments, guests also won exciting raffle prizes including: a $100 gift certificate donated by the Starr Restaurant Group to The Dandelion, a British inspired pub in Center City, Chilean wine, German beer, and a signed team jersey from Philadelphia Union.

The BABC would like to recognize and thank Co-lead sponsors TD Bank and The McConnell Companies.
