McKay featured in Crain's Cleveland Business City Club article

Hugh McKay, partner-in-charge of Porter Wright's Cleveland office, was photographed and interviewed for a Crain's Cleveland Business article on Feb. 25 titled "City Club is getting younger in Year 101" about the organization's new strategic plan to appeal to a younger, wider audience in Northeast Ohio.

From Crain's Cleveland Business, Michelle Park reporting:
"Hugh E. McKay, immediate past president of the City Club and a club member, is confident all of the plan's parts will result in a 'more energized, more relevant City Club.' He is particularly optimistic about the organization's plans to target younger prospective members.

'Frankly, historically, we've focused on and catered to more senior people,' said Mr. McKay, partner-in-charge of the Cleveland office of Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP, a law firm and corporate sponsor of the City Club.

'We'll certainly continue to cater to more senior folks, but the future of Cleveland, plainly, is with this relatively younger generation,' he said. 'What's particularly exciting about the strategic plan is how we are going to engage and harness the tremendous positive energy of the up-and-coming generation here because that is the future. That is the next hundred years.'"
