David Rommel may be described as a low key businessman.

But yesterday he stood in the atrium of the Franklin P. Perdue Schools of Business to donate $5.5 million most of which will go to Salisbury University’s Center for Entrepreneurship.

The center opens in 2019.

University President Janet Dudley-Eshbach praised Rommel and his family adding that his family’s generosity may encourage others to join him.

The center will offer a place for students and entrepreneurs to work in making their business dreams come true.
