The 2016 event was held in the bank’s James E. Rohr auditorium at the Tower at PNC Plaza in Pittsburgh and broadcast to guests in 18 locations.

Under Packard’s helm, HGTV became one of the fastest-growing cable networks in television history. She recently authored New Rules of the Game, which documents a way of strategic thinking that develops creativity, focus, optimism, teamwork and competitiveness.
