Since 1987, the Weatherhead 100 has been one of the most visible and significant achievements that can be reached by any business in the region.  Qualifying companies must show consistent growth over the last five years.  The Weatherhead 100 list, which is compiled and managed annually by the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University and the Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE), recognizes organizations for their hard work, commitment to excellence, and drive to succeed.
