Annie Ritchey moved to a Philadelphia suburb in New Jersey to launch her career after graduating from Penn State. Her job was engaging and nightlife was great, but she and her husband despaired of ever being able to buy a home and build roots. “Back here, we knew there are great schools and a manageable cost of living. When it came time to start a family of our own, we wanted to come back to Pittsburgh.”
Now a Mount Lebanon resident and avid “T” rider, Ritchey works for Infrastructure and Industrial Constructors USA (i+iconUSA). You can learn more about Annie Ritchey, at her Neighbor Profile on ImaginePittsburgh.com, and learn more about careers at i+icon’ at its employer profile.

As the daughter of a bricklayer and the granddaughter of a steelworker, Michele Hricik Saling’s mission is close to her heart: bringing the Pittsburgh region’s economic comeback to blue-collar workers as well as professionals.
Saling is working to further that cause through the Forum for Economic Development, a nonpartisan, nonprofit Pittsburgh-based organization. With its recently launched website and blog, the FED aims to serve as a clearinghouse for innovative ideas to bring manufacturing and jobs in the trades to southwestern Pennsylvania.
While the Pittsburgh economy overall has made a comeback, many blue-collar workers have been left behind, Saling says. As the organization’s president and executive director, she hopes to foster discussion that will help civic, business leaders and the general public better understand the problem, the players and the possible solutions.
Among the ideas and projects the FED is pursuing is a study of how the regional transformation strategy emerged to create the post-steel “meds and eds” boom, as well as how this strategy impacted the city and county and its roadmap for the future. Other projects include taking an inventory of the region’s initiatives addressing the needs of low- to mid-skilled manufacturing workers and convening a conference to share this information and develop next steps.
The FED kicks off its speakers series Sept. 27 at Carnegie Mellon University with City Councilman and Democratic mayoral contender Bill Peduto. Check out the FED’s website, PittsburghMovingForward.org, to learn more.
