*    President of the Westmoreland Bar Association, Reg Beldin, appointed me to chair a committee to look into the formation of a lawyer’s abstract company that would benefit the attorneys in Westmoreland County.  Within a year, Lawyers Abstract Company of Westmoreland County was formed.  The abstract company has been a successful business venture; proceeds from the company have benefited the Bar Association, the Bar Foundation and more than half of the practicing attorneys in the County.

**   I was one of four individuals who formed ROAM Investments, Inc. in 1999.  In the eleven years of ROAM’s existence, ROAM has purchased five commercial buildings in Pittsburgh, 3 commercial condos in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh and one commercial building in Greensburg.  ROAM has a number of holdings that have been obtained through limited partnerships with private equity investment capital.

***   Bally Design, Inc was a tenant in one of ROAM’s buildings, had trouble paying rent and was facing bankruptcy.  ROAM, together with investors, bought Bally Design and within a year had it turning a profit.  Today Bally Design is a successfully run company with clients such as MSA, Respironics, Lincoln Electric and OXO.
