Bancroft CEO Receives Award Honoring Exemplary Female Leaders


-- Toni Pergolin Recognized with 2012 Brava! Award --


Haddonfield, N.J. – July 31, 2012 – Bancroft President and CEO Toni Pergolin recently won an award for outstanding leadership from a Philadelphia organization.  


Philadelphia SmartCEO magazine selected Pergolin from among 200 nominees for its Brava! Awards. The Brava! Awards recognize leading women executives who encourage local philanthropy, mentor fellow CEOs, and set their companies on the path to "tremendous" growth. Pergolin was one of 25 CEOs selected to receive this year's awards. 



Among Pergolin’s accomplishments recognized by the Brava! Award:

  • She helped save Bancroft from a severe financial crisis, taking the longstanding nonprofit from a $13 million loss in 2004 to a $4 million gain in 2006, and has maintained that stability.
  • She has made it her priority to share information with employees, empowering them to continually improve the organization.
  • She has expanded the organization’s continuum of services, enabling Bancroft to help an even broader group of people and setting it apart from most of its competitors.

“Toni is a tireless advocate for individuals with autism, brain injuries and other intellectual disabilities,” said Bancroft Board Chairman Martin A. Bieber, CEO of Kennedy Health System. “She continues to lead Bancroft with a clear vision for the organization’s future, and this recognition is well-deserved.”
