Notable Immigrant Leaders

America is a country of immigrants, and their impact can be felt across Northeast Ohio.
Just ahead of Welcoming Week 2020, Crain’s Cleveland Business, in association with Global Cleveland, is celebrating
our region’s Notable Immigrant Leaders.
Global Cleveland’s Welcoming Week, held virtually Sept. 11-18, brings together communities to celebrate unity and
the benefits of welcoming newcomers. In the same vein, Crain’s 2020 Notable Immigrant Leaders recognizes 20
immigrant business professionals and civil leaders who have made an impact in Northeast Ohio. This feature honors
their professional, civic and philanthropic achievements, while highlighting their social and economic contributions to
Northeast Ohio.
