Alumnus Drew Greenblatt (MBA ’91), owner and president of Marlin Steel, visited the White House on March 31 to talk manufacturing with President Donald Trump. Greenblatt was part of a delegation representing the National Association of Manufacturers; he currently chairs the association’s Small and Medium Sized Manufacturers section. During the meeting, President Trump announced the results of a National Association of Manufacturers survey showing a surge in optimism among manufacturers about the future of the industry. Greenblatt, whose company uses exclusively U.S. steel and manufactures everything in Baltimore City, Maryland, told the president he shares that enthusiasm and is greatly encouraged by the policies his administration is pursuing.

“Manufacturing is critical to the nation’s economy, so I’m thrilled to see one of our alumni representing this important industry in meetings with the President,” said Dean Ira Solomon. “Thanks to outstanding companies like Marlin Steel, the U.S. is well on its way to a powerful resurgence in manufacturing.”
