The 2013 Roll of Distinguished Alumni in the West Virginia University College of Business and Economics will welcome four new inductees.

"The depth and breadth of the successes of B&E continues to amaze me," Jose "Zito" Sartarelli, College of Business and Economics Milan Puskar Dean said in a news release. "This year's inductees are evidence of highly successful people who have contributed greatly not only to the business world, but also in capacities where they enrich the people around them.

"These four gentlemen show us that they have been successful in a number of ways, and they are truly fantastic examples and inspiration for students at our business school."

The inductees are: Jerry Black, senior executive vice president for Aeon Co., Ltd. Japan; Robert Reitman, retired CEO of The Tranzonic Companies and philanthropist in Cleveland, Ohio; Bob Robinson, president, Robinson Automotive Group in Wheeling; and David Woodrum, chairman, Woodrum Inc.

The Roll of Distinguished Alumni started in 2011 to commemorate the College of Business and Economic's 60th anniversary celebration. Nominees must meet specific criteria, which include being an alumnus of the college and being at least 10 years post-degree.

A private luncheon and induction ceremony is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Oct. 18 at Erickson Alumni Center.
