Founded in 1983 by Steve Zuckerman, Ian Ruzow and Bob Zuckerman, Clipper Magazine has grown from a single four-page campus advertising publication to over 500 local editions. Now the leader in direct mail, Clipper Magazine, headquartered in Mountville, PA, calls Lancaster County “home.”
Lancaster County is a popular tourist destination, due mostly to the surrounding Amish population. With some of the most fertile soil in the U.S., Lancaster County has a strong farming industry. Agriculture and local tourism are likely to remain an important part of Lancaster County’s economy. Clipper is known as a Lancaster County-based organization with an economic footprint of national significance.
Clipper is actively involved and encourages its employees to participate in helping their local community. One of the underlying core beliefs of the organization is that companies prosper when they work as volunteers, doing extra work beyond their immediate company needs. That extra effort, “donated” to the community, benefits all users, and makes the area better.
Most people like to contribute to bettering their communities by offering aid to where it is needed most. Some people support certain associations or healthcare programs that have touched them personally. Clipper Magazine’s Special Events Committee works in conjunction with the Human Resources Dept. to provide employees with opportunities to get involved as well as to give back to the area, by implementing wellness initiatives, sponsoring artistic activities and fundraisers for a wealth of causes. As such, Clipper has been recognized, not only as one of the best places to work in Pennsylvania but also for its sense of community.
