Citation awarded on Saturday, June 3, 1967
As president of the Overmyer Company, Inc., Daniel Overmyer brought an energetic force and personal leadership to an industry that turned $4,000 into $250,000,000 in eighteen years by creating the first nationwide network of 260 warehouses in 60 cities across the country. His working principle is to invent ways to give his clients greater value for their money by maximizing the efficiency of his operations and rapidly meeting client needs.
Daniel eventually expanded into the fields of banking, newspaper publishing, industrial leasing, credit and more recently the TV world with the same revolutionizing service concepts.
