PHILADELPHIA – Stradley Ronon's Chairman Emeritus William R. Sasso was featured in the Philadelphia Business Journal’s 2021 Power 100 annual ranking. Sasso was selected to honor his 27-year tenure as chairman of the firm and has been consecutively named to the “Power 100” list since 2017.

The Power 100 list serves as a guide of the region’s most influential people in the Greater Philadelphia region whose work has impacted and shaped the business community as we know it today.

Sasso began his career at Stradley Ronon in 1972 as a tax attorney but quickly built a reputation as a go-to lawyer and leading business leader in Philadelphia. His political influence crossed political aisles, as Sasso served as senior counsel on Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro’s transition team, was appointed by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf to serve on the board of Independence Blue Cross and was appointed by former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett as Chairman of the Pennsylvania Infrastructure and Investment Authority (PENNVEST) and as a Commissioner of the Delaware River Port Authority, an office he held until 2015.

In 2018, Sasso received a lifetime achievement award from the Philadelphia Inquirer for his leadership in the legal and business community. In 2019, Sasso was selected by the Philadelphia Business Journal as one of Philadelphia’s Most Admired CEOs. He was also inducted into the Philadelphia Business Journal’s “Best of the Bar: Hall of Fame” to honor his outstanding 47-year legal career.
