About the Building:

The home of the Weatherhead School of Management is the Frank Gehry-designed Peter B. Lewis Building. The Lewis Building reflects the spirit of Weatherhead’s innovative approach and clearly places Weatherhead in the vanguard of business education. It redefines the way a business school should look, just as Weatherhead redefines the way management education should be taught.

About Peter B. Lewis:

In 1965, in one of the first leveraged buyouts in history, Peter B. Lewis took control of his family’s 100-employee Cleveland insurance company. His radical idea: insure drivers no other company would touch. Forty years later, he is Chairman of the Progressive Corporation, the nation’s third largest auto insurer with 27,000 employees and sales of $13.4 billion. In 1999, Mr. Lewis donated $36.9 million to the Weatherhead School for the building that bears his name – the most recent gift in a series of contributions to Case Western Reserve University honoring four generations of the Lewis family who have attended the University.
