5 Philly Area Companies Make Fortune’s Most Admired Companies List

Aramark and Comcast lead the way.



Five local companies have made Fortune’s new list of the World’s Most Admired Companies.

The list named 340 companies across 54 industries and ranked the top 50. The top three were no surprise: Apple, Alphabet (Google’s parent company) and Amazon.com. None of the Philly-area companies were in the top 50.

To create the list, Fortune surveys 4,000 “investors, consumers, and business insiders who keep an eye on the markets, listen to earnings calls, and follow the Fortune 500 and Global 500 with a keen interest.” Experts ranked the companies on a variety of factors, like quality of management and leadership, community responsibility, and ability to attract talent.

Here are the Philly companies that made the list:

AmerisourceBergen – Chesterbrook, Pa. 

Industry: Wholesalers: Health Care

Fortune 500 Rank: 16

Aramark – Philadelphia

Industry: Diversified Outsourcing Services

Fortune 500 Rank: 207

Industry: Homebuilders

Fortune 500 Rank: 628

Universal Health Services – King of Prussia, Pa.

Fortune 500 Rank: 324

Amerisource Bergen and Aramark were named for the first time in the list’s three-year history. Comcast, Toll Brothers and Universal Health Services were all on the list last year.
