Buddy Schulman

Remembering Buddy Schulman

It is very fitting that on a day that we celebrate Eli’s being around the world we celebrate the life of my cousin Glenn “Buddy” Schulman, who with my dear friend, Walter Babian, taught me and Eli’s about the wonders of the world and the potential for our business globally. Buddy knew about business around the world long before it became convenient or comfortable. I treasure Buddy’s passport, left,  from 1957 (when I was two years old). Among the countries visited by Buddy when he worked for Hawaiian Pineapple Company: India, Japan, Hong Kong, England and Thailand. Buddy, thank you for the inspiration and for the constant support and encouragement.

In a week that we celebrated the dedication of the Wright Campus Business Park (honoring our partner in the community Wilbur Wright College), how fitting is that Buddy Schulman played on the 1947 Wright Warriors Football Team (see roster, left!).
