Walter Solomon, vice president and chief growth officer for Ashland Inc. and a Lexington resident, has been elected chair of the BBYO International Board of Directors.
BBYO describes itself as “the leading pluralistic Jewish teen movement aspiring to involve more Jewish teens in more meaningful Jewish experiences.” Growing up in Charleston, South Carolina, Solomon was involved in the organization. He was then a chapter advisor in Cincinnati while working for Procter & Gamble and for startup companies in health care and software development.
“BBYO was a formative experience that prepared me to be the person I am today,” Solomon said. “Many of my community, business and personal relationships were fostered while in BBYO and continue decades later.”
