Rosemarie Greco, ex-President of CoreStates Bank and a health policy aide to former Pa. Gov. Ed Rendell, married Anne Morrissey, executive vice president/chief operating officer at Philadelphia-based health insurer AmeriHealth Mercy Family of Companies, in New York last week.
Greco, 66, a St. Joseph's University graduate who considered being a nun, went into business instead and rose to be a senior executive at the former Fidelity Bank before joining CoreStates. She negotiated the agreement that resulted in the city's major indoor sports arena currently being named the Wells Fargo Center. She was also charged with improving relations between the banks' old-fashioned male management hierarchies and their largely female workforces.
Morrissey's company, AmeriHealth Mercy was founded, in part, by the Sisters of Mercy, a Catholic order of religious sisters. Catholic leaders do not recognize marriage between women, and have lobbied against legal recognition of gay and lesbian marriage in Pennsylvania. Morrissey and Greco were married in an Episcopal ceremony in New York.
