After more than a century as an industrial powerhouse, Pittsburgh is proud to rank among the top places to live, work, and visit in the United States. Our region is consistently recognized with accolades from major travel and financial organizations as one of the most livable cities with one of the most viable economies. We have been honored as a first-rate city for livability, culture, and economy for several years.

Who made this extraordinary turnaround happen? The companies of the region, many of them depicted here, their leadership and their employees.
