Pennsylvania Bio State Official of the Year


Rep. Warren Kampf (R-Chester) has been named State Official of the Year by Pennsylvania Bio. The award recognizes an official from Pennsylvania who has distinguished themselves in the bioscience industry. The annual recipient of the award is selected by the Pennsylvania Bio Board Advocacy Committee, after receiving nominations provided by the Board’s State Policy Committee.

Pennsylvania Bio was founded 20 years ago and currently represents the entire life sciences industry in Pennsylvania. Their mission is to “ensure Pennsylvania is a global leader in biosciences by creating a cohesive community that unites our biotechnology, medical device, diagnostic, pharmaceutical, research, financial strengths”. PA Bio members benefit from influence in public policy and an opportunity to enhance their business through networking.

Before being elected to the State House of Representatives in November 2010, Kampf worked as an attorney and was a member of the Tredyffrin Township Board of Supervisors. Currently, Kampf is the Secretary of both the House Consumer Affairs Committee and the House Local Government Committee. In addition, he is also a member of the House Liquor Control Committee and the House Urban Affairs Committee.

Most prominently, Rep. Kampf was recognized for his InnovatePA legislation, which auctions insurance premium tax credits to insurance companies that pay the tax in Pennsylvania. These companies’ money is then invested in high-growth and technology-oriented businesses here in the Commonwealth. The effect of InnovatePA can already be seen at the Ben Franklin Technology Development Authority and Pennsylvania’s Life Science Greenhouses.
