Celebrating the leadership, vision, tenacity, and love of community shared by the recipients of the Great Living Cincinnatian Award, presented annually by the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber since 1967.
Howard Morgens rose from a junior soap salesman to become chairman and chief executive officer at The Procter & Gamble Co. He was a vital force in our community since he first arrived in 1934. His business leadership is legendary. During the period of his most intense leadership, from 1957 to 1974, he guided P&G’s evolution from essentially a U.S. soap and shortening company with some adjuncts into a broadly diversified worldwide business.
He was devoted to his work with the Citizens Development Committee, a group that worked to develop the city’s master plan. He served first as head of the group’s expressway committee, and from 1954 to 1958 served as chairman. He was a director from 1949 to 1967.
Morgens was a renowned business leader nationally as well as locally. He helped organize the Business Roundtable in 1972, a group of the nation’s highest business executives who work with congressional committees to make the business point of view known. He was a founding member of the National Industrial Pollution Control Council. The list of business and civic groups with which he has been active is a lengthy and distinguished one.
Recipients are selected from candidates by the Cincinnati Chamber’s senior council based on the following criteria: – Community service – Business and civic attainment on a local, state and national or international level – Leadership – Awareness of the needs of others – Distinctive accomplishments that have brought favorable attention to their community, institution or organization
