He chaired the Cleveland Cuyahoga County Port Authority and represented the City of Cleveland in the sale and development of the Cleveland Convention Center.

Marc and his firm donated their time and skills to work with the city and our partners on all of our bids to host a National Convention in Cleveland.

He was instrumental in the process that ultimately resulted in our success in securing the 2016 Republican National Convention.

He will be missed by the community and by me, personally.”
