The Green Ribbon Coalition would like to congratulate founding member Theodore Ferringer on his recent honor of being awarded Crain’s “40 under 40”! This award highlights forty Northeast Ohio leaders who are under 40 and who are engaged in helping others and bettering the community through their jobs and volunteer work.
Ferringer is a Business Development Director, Associate and Architect with Cleveland’s Bialosky Archicture Firm. He is a graduate of the Kent State University College of Architecture and Environmental Design (March ’08, MUD ’08), where he attended KSU’s Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative graduate school program. He currently serves on our Cleveland East Side Design Review Committee, advocating for an accessible and connected ribbon of amenities along Northeast Ohio’s Lake Erie shore.
As the 2016 AIA National Associates Committee Chair, Ferringer is an emerging leader in architecture. Born to a family of artisans and craftsmen in the Upper Appalachians of Pennsylvania, he has an in-depth knowledge of the building crafts and is a passionate advocate for innovative architecture and planning that serves the public good. He was also previously honored in 2014 by the Cleveland Professional 20/30 Club as one of Cleveland’s Top 25 Under 35 and most recently had worked featured in AIA’s 2017 Emerging Professionals Exhibition, “Citizen Design.”
We look forward to many more years of wonderful collaboration with Theodore Ferringer and all other Green Ribbon Coalition members to keep making Northeast Ohio a better place for all.
