William Schubert, MD, former long-time CEO of Cincinnati Children’s, will be enshrined Sept. 29 in the Greater Cincinnati Business Hall of Fame for his work to build the medical center into one of the nation’s leading pediatric hospitals.
Schubert held various positions at Cincinnati Children’s throughout his 33-year career, and was named president and chief executive officer in 1983. He retired in 1996, but still serves on the medical center’s Board of Trustees.
The Greater Cincinnati Business Hall of Fame was established in 1991 by Junior Achievement in cooperation with the Cincinnati Museum Center to honor outstanding past and present business leaders. The 2011 class also includes Jack Brown, former chairman of the AC Nielsen Corp. and David O’Maley, former president and CEO of the Ohio National Life Insurance Co. Two more Cincinnati business icons will be honored posthumously: Nicholas Lambrinides, founder of the Skyline Chili restaurant chain and I.T. Verdin, who built the Verdin Company into a nationally prominent bell maker.
