    (NECN) - Steven Biondolillo spent much of his youth in an orphanage. From there, he went on to become an Olympic wrestler. Recently, he was inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame.

    Now he runs a business all about giving back to others. A leader in pledge-based fundraising, Biondolillo Associates is recognized for coining the term, "signature event," referring to a fundraiser that may be even more well-known than the non-profit organization it supports.

    Biondolillo joins Peter Howe on CEO Corner to discuss the changing face of fundraising. He explains that the top on the list of his qualifications for employees includes strong reading and writing skills.
