For Immediate Release

York, Pa. – We are pleased to announce Barley Snyder Partner Stacey R. MacNeal has been named to Central Penn Business Journal’s (CPBJ) 2023 “Women of Influence Circle of Excellence” list.

CPBJ’s Women of Influence recognizes high-achieving women for their career accomplishments. The Circle of Excellence award is given to women who have demonstrated sustained achievement, longstanding and notable success in the community, and are leading the way for other women. The judges, consisting of CPBJ’s publisher and editors, are asked to be extremely selective at this stage.

“I have always felt that giving back to my community and my profession was important,” said MacNeal. “I am honored and humbled to be included on this prestigious list with so many accomplished female professionals forging the way for other young women.”

MacNeal is a member of Barley Snyder’s Real Estate Practice Group and chairs the firm’s Land Use practice. She has been practicing law for more than 25 years, regularly representing property owners and developers in all stages of real estate acquisition, financing, operations, development and divestment. An avid volunteer, MacNeal currently serves on the board of directors of the York Symphony Orchestra, its governance committee as well as chairs its strategic planning, marketing and audience development task force. She also currently serves on the executive leadership committee for York’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s and the fund development committee for the DreamWrights Center for Community Arts.

“Prior to joining Barley Snyder, I had the pleasure of working with Stacey at my first firm out of law school. She immediately took me under her wing and guided me on how to handle various real estate matters, but more importantly, on what it meant to be a professional woman in the legal workforce,” said Barley Snyder Attorney Jayne R. Katherman. “I believe her contributions to our firm and to the community make her a standout example of what this award stands for.”

MacNeal and other honorees will be recognized at a celebration on June 27 at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel in Harrisburg. The honorees will be profiled in a magazine that will be distributed to all winners and attendees at the awards celebration, available on CPBJ’s website and inserted in CPBJ’s July 7 edition.
