In the sixty years since its inception, the Bucks County Economic Development Corporation (BCEDC) has been dedicated to creating a vital and strong economic base through the preservation and creation of job opportunities for Bucks County. The linchpin in its success to fulfill its mission is the organization’s dedicated and talented volunteers. In recognition of their untiring efforts, we are presenting two Lifetime Achievement Awards as we mark our Diamond Anniversary of service to Bucks County and its residents.

It is an honor to present Mr. Robert B. Steinhart with the BCEDC Lifetime Achievement Award. Mr. Steinhart joined the corporation in 1983 and distinguished himself as an outstanding leader and dedicated volunteer. Robert served as president from 2008 to 2010 and remains an active member on our board of directors from 1993 and executive committee since 2000 to present. He has chaired numerous special committees over the years from strategic planning to relocation committee. His invaluable insights and commitment to excellence is evidence in the continued success of the BCEDC as well as other community-based organizations. 

Robert is a dedicated husband, loving father of a son and daughter and has one grandson. In his free time he enjoys playing golf, hiking, sailing, kayaking and spending time with his family. He is an international real estate principal and executive who has expertise in appraisals, marketing, and information systems. 

BCEDC takes great pride in recognizing and honoring Rob Steinhart as a recipient of the 2018 Lifetime achievement Award.

Rob’s inspiration, instigation and passion have been instrumental in making the BCEDC a real success over the years. He regularly constructively challenges the status quo and that challenging has helped us reach heights we may not thought possible. His contribution to the board will be felt for a very long time. —Jim Tyrrell
