The CEO Roundtable Series is a special program series for HYP members only, which features CEOs from the Harrisburg region who will speak about their professional journey, lessons learned, struggles and successes, and provide insight to young professionals hoping to make their personal career path a success.
The last CEO Roundtable of 2017 will feature Sue Pera, Owner of Cornerstone Coffeehouse.
The event will be held on Friday, October 20th at 7:30am at the Hilton Harrisburg and is for members only.
I purchased Cornerstone Coffeehouse with my husband, Al, in 1999 and have devoted myself to making it a hub of community activity ever since. In 2004, Al and I added the Cornerstone Culinary Kitchen, where several times a month we host cooking classes, salons and private events for our clients to enjoy. I am extremely passionate about my livelihood, and customers of Cornerstone can find me almost every day working with and getting to know the people of my community.
Outside of Cornerstone, I am also involved with several community and regional organizations. I have served as Chair of the Capital Region Economic Development Corporation; Chair of the Camp Hill Economic Development Group; and Co-Chair of the Plein Air Arts Festival and Competition.
I am deeply committed to the businesses and people who make up my community; the family and friends who have helped shape who I am today (good or bad!); my husband, Al, with whom I have worked for over 20 years (and we’re both still alive to talk about it!); and my border collie, Sophia, who gives me unconditional love daily
