About Alex Charlton

Alex Charlton knows what it takes to create jobs. As President of the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce, Alex worked with the small and medium-sized businesses that drive innovation and economic growth in Pennsylvania.

Under Alex’s leadership, the Chamber was a resource for entrepreneurs trying to get their business off the ground. He helped growing firms access the services and programs they needed to expand and hire. Alex worked with our elected officials at all levels of government to promote job creation, educate our kids to compete for jobs in a modern economy and improve the quality of life in Delaware County. With Alex at the helm, the Chamber cut administrative overhead, expanded its membership and improved services for member firms.


Today, Alex serves as Chief of Staff to State Sen. Tom McGarrigle. He oversees the Senator’s staff and legislative agenda and serves as his chief advisor on issues like education, transportation, public safety and the Pennsylvania budget. He’s also responsible for ensuring the Senator’s office is responsive and provides a high level of service for constituents.

A lifelong resident of Delaware County, Alex lives in Springfield with his wife, Kira, and their three daughters.
