Chair, Covenant House PA Board of Directors
Robert Mauch
Robert Mauch is the Executive Vice President & Group President of AmerisourceBergen Corporation. In this role, he is focused on creating a best-in-class customer experience and driving growth through strategically relevant, valued-added solutions for providers of pharmaceutical care. Mr. Mauch has a more than 30-year career in pharmaceutical care. He received his Pharm.D. from Mercer University and his Ph.D. in pharmacy administration from the University of South Carolina where he pursued a focus in health economics—specifically, the total cost and benefit of effective pharmaceutical healthcare. Passionate about giving back to the community, Mr. Mauch has served many charitable and civic organizations. Since 2016, he has served on the Board of Directors for Covenant House Pennsylvania and was appointed to Chair in 2018. Mr. Mauch is deeply inspired by the mission of Covenant House Pennsylvania and remembers fondly the first time he participated in the Covenant House Sleep Out Movement in 2016 – “My passion for Covenant House was already set before the sleep out. I was already all in. What the sleep out did was solidify what I already knew; Covenant House is doing incredible work for amazing people. The organization has a real, tangible impact on people—kids—who really need help.” He’s humbled by the opportunity to continue sharing and contributing to the positive difference the organization makes in the lives of homeless youth through his role on the Board of Directors.
