Tom Morr, president and chief executive of Select Greater Philadelphia, is stepping down when his contract expires in June. Morr has lead Select Greater Philadelphia since 2005. The organization is the marketing arm of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce.

William Sasso, chairman of the Select operating committee, praised Morr in an e-mail: "During his tenure nearly 100 companies have chosen to locate operations here, more than 11,000 total jobs have been added to the economy and Select and its economic development partners have generated as much as $840 million per annum in new economic impact in our region."
