The Cleveland Plus region has the fourth-heaviest concentration of headquarters employment and is home to 20 Fortune 1000 companies. Proportionately, the region outpaces much larger markets, including Chicago, Atlanta, New York and Los Angeles. As such, Northeast Ohio is home to a number of global brands such as Progressive Insurance, the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., J.M. Smucker Co., Sherwin-Williams and many, many more.
