Established in 1958 in NY - Founded by the late Dorothy F. Cullman and her husband, Lewis B. Cullman. Mr. Cullman is credited in financial circles with being one of the first to employ a strategy of buying and selling companies that later became known as a "leveraged buyout" when he and two partners purchased the multi-million dollar Orkin Exterminating Company; a subsequent purchase of a desk calendar company evolved into At-A-Glance, the largest U.S. calendar and appointment book manufacturer. A major philanthropist with his late wife Dorothy, Mr. Cullman is also the author of "Can't Take It With You -- The Art of Making and Giving Money."
