BW Alumnus Inducted Into NEO Business Hall Of Fame

November 25, 2013

Summers went from working in a garage as a "grunt" to working as the CEO of McDonald Investments; but he fondly recalls the older days in the garage, and he pays credit to the humble experiences that have shaped him.

In an article in the 2013 November/December issue of Inside Business magazine, Summers remembers BW as playing a key role in his success. A former Chairman of BW's Board of Trustees, Summers also co-chaired two of his alma mater's  most successful capital campaigns.

The five 2013 Hall of Fame inductees, including Summers, were selected by a blue ribbon committee of business and civic leaders. They were recognized as "men and women who have helped to create Northeast Ohio’s industries and shaped the area’s economic landscape."
