Description

Some frustrated business heads starting in the 1970s insinuated that older Rustbelt centers including Cleveland, Ohio were finding themselves losing their once decided economic advantage to other, more mindful Sunbelt communities. The fire on the Cuyahoga River in 1969 occurring in the wake of the recent Hough and Glenville riots seemed to support their opinions. However, they were very much wrong in that regard. Cleveland, OH remains a foremost center for Fortune 500 headquarters right into the 2020s.

Midway between New York City and Chicago and its Great Lakes natural resources and large national markets, this urban base not only provides an experienced workforce and desirable sites for future business expansion; but also, affords top rated conveniences and nationally-admired educational institutions. This writing will investigate the Fortune 500 phenomenon as it pertains to Cleveland’s long-term business success. Those Fortune 500s headquartered in this city with their unique perspectives towards operating their respective enterprises deserve further scrutiny by analysts especially given today’s many economic and financial uncertainties.
