Created in 1989, Weatherhead 100 is the highly regarded Case Western Reserve University Weatherhead School of Management program that recognizes the region’s 100 top-performing companies based on sales growth over a five-year period.

Magnus ranked in the top half of winning businesses, finishing in the No. 46 spot. Formed in 2007, the company was first eligible for a Weatherhead 100 award in 2012 and debuted on the list in the No. 1 position that year.

“Just being on the list is a great benchmark for progress and success,” said Magnus co-owner Scott Forster. “Sustainable, high growth is our business model, and we’re really proud of our team for continuing to help us carry out that mission.”

Weatherhead winners were honored at a black-tie gala at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven. The event was created to celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship and to applaud companies that demonstrate exceptional success.

“Your recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of your entire organization, and your incredible impact on the Northeast Ohio business community,” said Robert Widing, dean of the Weatherhead School of Management, which is considered one of the best business schools in the world.
