From humble beginnings in Ohio at the turn of the 20th century, to the heights of the business world in the fields of appliances at Frigidaire and Hotpoint, in the automobile industry at the Packard Motor Car Company, Studebaker-Packard Corporation and the Ford Motor Company, banking at the Central National Bank in Cleveland, finance at First Union Real Estate Investments, and his return to the Packard world via The Packard Club, Nance’s story is one of triumph and tragedy.
