Inside Business Magazine: included in the Power 100 for the past 4 years 
“We started our search for the region’s most powerful by turning to those who know power best. We surveyed the leaders on our previous Power 100 list, asking them who wields the most clout in Northeast Ohio today, who gained power in 2012, who lost it and which up-and-comers are already proving themselves. We then applied our news judgment about the events and forces that affected our region in 2012 and our sense of which men and women most influenced the region’s economy and which are poised to do the same in the new year.”-Inside Business Magazine, 2/13, article here

While bipartisan coalitions in the House have been moving legislation to deregulate swaps — the complex financial products at the heart of the 2008 banking collapse — a host of Senate bills cracking down on Wall Street risk have garnered Democratic and GOP support." - Huffington Post, 7/11/2013, article here
