Biography

Mark Stephen Schweiker

        Mark Schweiker was born January 31, 1953 in Philadelphia and raised in suburban 
Bucks County. He graduated with a bachelor's degree from Bloomsburg State College 
in 1975, majoring in education with a minor in business. He then worked in 
marketing and as a securities broker, and in 1983 earned a master's degree in 
administration from Rider University. But it was in 1979 that his public career 
got its start when he was elected a supervisor in Middletown Township in Bucks 
County, and then a County Commissioner in 1987. After being re-elected he sought 
to serve on a larger scale, and in 1994 became the running mate of Republican 
candidate Tom Ridge. Schweiker was elected Lieutenant Governor in that fall's 
election, and was able to bring his fifteen years of experience in government to a 
statewide constituency.
       As the Lieutenant Governor Mark Schweiker was able to expand the 
traditional role of the office, and utilize it to manage a number of initiatives 
to increase government efficiency, urban redevelopment, neighborhood safety, and 
information technology. He was also oversaw the Pennsylvania Emergency Management 
Agency and chaired the Local Government Advisory Committee, a key role based on 
his experience in county administration.
       Schweiker was re-elected in 1998, and in 2000 announced that he would not 
run for the Governor's office in 2002. But after the tragedy of September 11 
Governor Ridge was called to head federal homeland security, and on October 5, 
2001 Mark Schweiker became the 44th Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 
During his fifteen months as Governor he increased the role of the State Police 
and National Guard in keeping the state secure and in his finest moment oversaw 
the rescue of nine miners from the Quecreek mine in July of 2002.
      Following his departure from office Schweiker became President of the
Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce in February of 2003, and after eight
years returned to his native Bucks County, where he lives with his wife Katherine
and children Brett, Eric, and Kara.  In 2009 he resigned from the Chamber of Commerce to serve as President of the Business Process Solutions unit of Philadelphia-based PRWT Services, Inc.
