Regionalism and the Lehigh Valley

David Thornburgh knows progress that can be made by working across boundaries – be they business, political or imagined. As president and chief executive officer of the Alliance for Regional Stewardship, he works to bring together the leaders in business, government, education and civic affairs to find innovative solutions to today’s problems.

Many communities have come to rely on a collaborative “pickup team” approach bringing together leaders from the public, private, and independent sectors but these teams need good coaching -- the game is tough and the odds of failure high.

The Alliance for Regional Stewardship was created in 2000, to serve as a coach and advisor to regional leaders and civic entrepreneurs around the country on the strategies and tactics that lead to results. The Alliance helps community leaders work together in a disciplined, structured way to achieve breakthrough results and build vibrant, competitive regions.
