Charles S. Marion, partner in the Commercial Litigation and Intellectual Property Litigation Practice Groups of Pepper Hamilton LLP in Philadelphia, was named president of the Chestnut Hill Community Fund. He served as vice president prior to being elected president. Marion accepted his nomination at a board meeting earlier this month.
“It is an honor and privilege to have been elected President of the Chestnut Hill Community Fund,” Marion said. “I have been involved in the Chestnut Hill community for many years, and look forward to continuing and furthering that involvement.”
Marion represents and counsels corporations and individuals in the areas of complex business litigation, intellectual property litigation, franchise litigation, and product liability. He has extensive trial and arbitration experience. He has also been active in and served on the boards of several other non profit and professional organizations in the Philadelphia region, including the Wharton Alumni Club of Philadelphia, the Chestnut Hill Rotary Club, Settlement Music School and Delaware Valley Habitat for Humanity.
At its meeting on June 6, CHCF trustees selected its officers for the coming year. CHCF president Jean Hemphill has decided to resign from her many years of service to the fund. Also retiring from their roles are secretary (and building steward) Stan Moat and treasurer Moss Disston. Their volunteerism and contributions were recognized by Marion. The remaining trustees will take on new roles: Ellen Williams as vice president, Susan Bray as secretary, Alexander “Zandy” Nalle as treasurer, and Andrew Glendinning as building steward.
