For Immediate Release 

Lancaster, Pa. – Savoy Magazine has included Barley Snyder partner Jennifer Craighead Carey on its 2021 Most Influential Black Corporate Directors list.

Craighead Carey was recognized for her work as a member of the board of directors at Lancaster-based Fulton Financial Corp., the parent company of Fulton Bank. The list of more than 700 African-American directors on corporate boards of directors across the country is compiled by the national publication Savoy Magazine, a leading African-American lifestyle magazine focusing on fashion, business, technology and style.

“Featuring this many African-American corporate board members highlights to the world where diversity is happening and why it’s so important,” Craighead Carey said. “A lot of companies talk about having diversity, but it’s valuable to see the companies that back that up by having diversity on their boards. It’s an honor to receive this prominent recognition.”
