Temple to Honor Ralph Roberts


Comcast Corp. founder Ralph J. Roberts will receive the “2005 Musser Award for Excellence in Leadership” from Temple University's Fox School of Business and Management Wednesday.

The Fox School said it chose Roberts “because of his outstanding business success and leadership in the local and national business community, as well as his work to create a culture of giving back to the communities that Comcast serves.”

“Through his entrepreneurship, his dedication, his deep community involvement and his values, Ralph Roberts represents the best in leadership excellence Philadelphia has to offer,” Fox School dean M. Moshe Porat said in a prepared statement.
