Northeast Ohio Business
Hall of Fame
Magazine’s Community Leader is
celebrating the 22nd annual Northeast Ohio Business Hall of Fame.
The Hall of Fame originated in 1996 to celebrate the city’s 200th
birthday, and to recognize the key contributors in Cleveland’s successful
business history. The inaugural class included Lorenzo Carter, Cleveland’s
first settler; Moses Cleaveland, who lent his name to the city; and oil tycoon
John D. Rockefeller; among many other well known professionals.
Each year since the introduction, a blue ribbon committee made up of business and civic leaders in Northeast Ohio selects a small class to induct into the Hall of Fame. These honorees have been the men and women who have created Northeast Ohio’s industries and shaped the area’s economic landscape.
