Abington’s Brent Cossrow elected chair of Reading Terminal Market’s Board

Abington resident Brent Cossrow was recently elected as the Chair of The Board of Directors of the Reading Terminal Market Corporation (RTMC), a not-for-profit corporation created in 1994 for the sole purpose of managing the historic Reading Terminal Market.

Cossrow was originally elected to the Board in October 2009 and began serving as Vice Chair in 2012.

“I’m looking forward to continuing my work with the RTMC board as we emerge from a global pandemic and support the Market’s mission to serve Philadelphia. Reading Terminal is a place people come to spend time, literally break bread, fulfill traditions, and make memories. Our commitment to Philadelphia and the Market’s customers is stronger than ever and the Market is playing a vital role as the City continues to reopen and welcome back visitors,” Cossrow said in a press release.

Cossrow, a partner with the Fisher Phillips law firm in Center City, takes over for Albert Mezzaroba, who had served as Chair since 2009.

“On behalf of the entire board, I want to thank Al for his leadership and friendship. His collaborative and hands-on leadership has paved the way for me to hit the ground running,” Cossrow said.

Eugene LeFevre and Keri White continue to serve as RTMC’s Treasurer and Secretary, respectively. Dawn Summerville, John McNichol, Anne Kelly, and Jennifer Rodriguez are also RTMC Directors.

“The RTMC board has worked in remarkable harmony throughout my tenure, even amidst the challenges posed due to COVID-19. I’ve known Brent for many years and am confident that his passion for and commitment to the Market will shine through in this new role,” Mezzaroba said. “The board is in great hands and I look forward to seeing the growth and success of the Corporation and the Market as a whole.”
