About Anthony P. Campisi

Martin Library 2023 Honoree Anthony Campisi

Tony was born and grew up in York County, planting his roots deeply into the area. In 1976, he completed his education here and married his wife, Stef. He and Stef are proud parents of three sons: Jason, Tony, and Ryan; and grandparents to six amazing grandchildren: Nathan, Aidan, Maddie, Ruby, Lyla, and Cora.

Tony holds a CPCU (Chartered Property & Casualty Underwriter) Designation, a BS in Accounting and Finance from York College of PA and is a graduate of the Insurance Agency Management Program of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.

Tony currently serves as Chairman of the Board at the Glatfelter Insurance Group. Since joining the Glatfelter Organization in 1980, Tony has served as VP Finance/CFO; the Executive VP Operations; and as President/CEO. In addition to his work, Tony is actively involved in 15 different community organizations, including serving as the current Board President of the International Association of Fire Chiefs Foundation; Co-Chair of the York College Comprehensive Capital Campaign; Chair of the Advisory Board for York College Center for Community Engagement. He is also a board member for multiple organizations, including Penn-Mar Human Services; the Crispus Attucks Association; and Better York.

A Civic-minded Focus

Tony recognizes the public library’s significant role in a knowledge-based economy and supports Martin Library’s future as a proud Legacy Society Member. As President of the Martin Library Board, Tony set the stage for the 2005 expansion of Martin Library with a successful capital campaign, and again served as Honorary Co-Chair of the YCL Countywide Capital Campaign in 2019.

Understandably, Tony is the recipient of many notable awards, including Penn-Mar Human Services’ 2019 Distinguished Humanitarian Award and Central Penn Business Journal’s 2019 Icon Award. In May 2018, he was awarded an honorary Doctor of Human Letters from York College during that year’s Commencement ceremony. Most recently, Tony was the 2022 Eagle Scout Honoree for the New Birth of Freedom Council/Boy Scouts of America.
