Growing The Family Business: How Vitamix And Dealer Tire Built Two World-Class Companies

Vitamix and Dealer Tire are two of Northeast Ohio’s most successful growth stories. And while they are very different businesses, they have a few important similarities. Both are family-led. Both have been around since the 1920s, and both have grown exponentially in the last ten years, through a combination of strategic vision and deliberate decisions about their market and their customers.

In this session, Vitamix President and CEO Jodi L. Berg and Dealer Tire CEO Scott Mueller sit down with JumpStart CEO Ray Leach to discuss leading and growing the Northeast Ohio businesses their families founded.
