    The Pittsburgh Social Exchange in partnership with the Pittsburgh Downtown Rotary Club, is proud to announce Mayor Bill Peduto as a speaker in our 'Executive Speaker & Luncheon Series'. Join us for this special luncheon!


    Bill Peduto was elected to the office of Mayor of the City of Pittsburgh in the General Election on November 5, 2013.  He has worked for 19 years on Pittsburgh City Council, as a staffer and Member of Council representing District 8, and resides in the Point Breeze neighborhood of the city.

    A self described “Reform Democrat”, Bill Peduto wrote the most comprehensive package of government reform legislation in Pittsburgh’s history. He strengthened the Ethics Code, created the city’s first Campaign Finance Limits, established Lobbyist Disclosure and Lobbyist Registration and ended No-Bid Contracts. But, Bill’s work on behalf of city residents goes much further than that.

    From co-creator and co-chair of the City’s Comprehensive Climate Action Plan to writing the legislation to protect Pittsburgh’s unique green hillsides — Bill Peduto has championed the protection and enhancement of Pittsburgh’s new reputation as a leader in green initiatives. As co-creator of iBurgh, the nation’s first mobile app for local government, he has led the discussion on e-democracy locally and nationally and has worked with local companies to help them in creating a new industry.

    Adding his own charity fund-raising activities, such as Executive Producer of a documentary about the Allegheny Observatory and the only politician who laces his skates as a member of Pittsburgh’s Celebrity Hockey Team and it is pretty easy to see — Bill Peduto is not your typical Mayor.

     Space is limited for this luncheon.

    The Pittsburgh Social Exchange in partnership with the Pittsburgh Downtown Rotary Club, is proud to announce Rob Cochran, President of #1 Cochran, as a speaker in our 'Executive Speaker & Luncheon Series'. Join us for this special luncheon!


    Rob Cochran officially joined #1 Cochran as the Executive Vice President in 1987.  He then continued to be named as President and CEO in 1992. 

    #1 Cochran stands head and shoulders above the rest in a time when it can be difficult to tell car dealers apart. Not because they are the biggest dealer group in the region, but because they’re the best in all the ways that matter to you.  They do this because they believe buying a vehicle is more than just a transaction. It’s an experience that begins long before you walk into one of our showrooms, and a relationship that lasts long after you leave.

    This philosophy, and input from customers like you on what the perfect car buying experience should be, led Rob Cochran to develop Clearly Better Car Buying. It’s been called the most innovative change in the regional auto dealer scene in decades and has been winning over customers in waves ever since it was first introduced back in 2013.

    Space is limited for this luncheon.
