JOBSOHIO HOLDS THIRD BOARD MEETING OF 2012
JobsOhio President and Interim Chief Investment Officer Mark Kvamme shared the economic development organization’s second quarter results (Apr-Jun) for 2012 with JobsOhio board members during a public meeting today at Marathon Petroleum in Findlay.
Kvamme told board members that from April through June of 2012, the efforts of JobsOhio and its economic development partners yielded commitments of 4,666 new jobs totaling $205 million in new payroll and capital investments of $863 million.
“Results from this second quarter tell a great story: jobs are growing across the state and in every sector,” said Kvamme. “One of Ohio’s greatest assets is its industry diversity, which means the economy does not rely one or two sectors.”
The public meeting also included a presentation by Dean Monske, President and CEO of the Regional Growth Partnership as well as updates from JobsOhio’s four managing directors about their respective industries.
