Members of The Presidents’ Council

The Presidents’ Council started The Presidents’ Council Foundation in 2000 and is comprised of a group of chief executive officers from some of the largest African American owned-and-operated businesses in the Greater Cleveland area. The organization was established in 1996 to support entrepreneurial and economic development within the African American community, and to foster strategic alliances with CEOs of other Northeast Ohio major corporations to advance the growth and development of Council member companies.

The Presidents’ Council provides business development opportunities for its membership through its “Boardroom-to-Boardroom” sessions designed to enhance collaboration among CEOs and other strategic alliances with majority companies.

The Presidents’ Council is actively recruiting majority company chairmen, presidents, chief executive officers and chief operating officers as associates.
