PITTSBURGH, November 21, 2023 – PWCampbell, a 113-year-old, fourth-generation retail services and design-build firm, announces that its long-time President & CEO James Caliendo will be retiring on December 31, 2023. Caliendo started at the Company in 1999 as Senior Vice President and has served in his current role for the past 18 years.

PWCampbell Principal John Campbell said, “Jim has been a tremendous leader and friend over the years, resulting in the diversification and growth of the great company we have today. We wish him the absolute best in this next chapter of his life.”

Caliendo added, “This decision comes with many emotions, but I know it’s in the best interest of both me and the Company. I will now get to spend more time with family, and I have always said that when the next generation of leadership and management is ready to take over, and they can do my job as well or better than me, it’s time. I realized that now is that time.”
