Garry Maddox, Chief Executive Officer
As Principal and CEO of A. Pomerantz & Co., Garry Maddox provides customers throughout the United States with a dedication to offer the highest quality products and services.
Garry is the recipient of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition & Citizenship Education Fund’s Curt Flood Award. The award was presented by Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr., Martin L. King, Esq. and Russell Ewert in recognition of efforts toward “A More Perfect Union: The State of Civil Rights.”
The workplace is evolving as quickly as the technology and workforce it supports. Garry and his team bring innovation to workplace environments in support of current goals and challenges such as: Green initiatives, attraction and retention of talent, supporting multiple generations in the workforce, and effective real estate utilization.
During Garry’s distinguished 14-year career in major league baseball, he won his first Gold Glove in 1975 which was his first of eight in a row when he was Centerfielder for the 1980 World Champion Phillies team. In 1986 he was honored with the Roberto Clemente Award, given annually to a player who demonstrates the values the Pittsburgh Pirates Hall-of-Famer displayed in his commitment to community and understanding the value of helping others.
Garry is committed to giving back to the community in which he lives and operates his businesses. In 2013, he founded Compete 360, a Design Thinking initiative for Philadelphia public schools. In 1997, he founded The Urban Youth Golf Program of Greater Atlantic City. The Program was a nonprofit organization which provided after school tutoring to elementary aged at risk children while offering the challenge of learning the game of golf. Garry most recently joined the advisory board of ULI (Urban Land Institute). This effort continues to grow in importance to Garry as a mission, as well as the communities his program now serves.
