Case Western Reserve University’s 2013 commencement lineup gives the Weatherhead School of Management community three reasons to celebrate in addition to our students’ accomplishments!


Peter B. LewisPETER B. LEWIS

Philanthropist, business innovator and Progressive Insurance Company chair Peter B. Lewis will address 2013 graduates at commencement on May 19. Lewis’ ties to Weatherhead are forged in steel and cement--literally: He funded Weatherhead’s distinctive campus home with a $36.9 million lead gift.

A longtime friend of Lewis, Frank O. Gehry is the visionary architect behind the Peter B. Lewis Building. Gehry, whose innovation in structural design matches that of Lewis in the business realm, will also receive an honorary degree.

CWRU President Barbara R. Snyder said in a statement, “It is fitting that, on the 10th anniversary of the opening of a structure that was a catalyst for our campus, we welcome back the two men most responsible for its creation. Both men redefined their respective fields, and their vision for a single building reminded us of the extraordinary influence that two talented people can have on a university and, ultimately, the globe.”


Dan HurwitzDAN HURWITZ
Weatherhead graduates and their guests will hear from Daniel B. Hurwitz, CEO of DDR Corp., a major retail property company headquartered in the Cleveland area, at the Weatherhead diploma ceremony the afternoon of May 19. Hurwitz was voted the best CEO in the Real Estate Investment Trust sector and named to Institutional Investor magazine's 2013 All-America Executive Team. He is also a member of Weatherhead’s visiting committee.
