During the Board meeting, a recap of the corporation’s third quarter results was provided by John Minor, JobsOhio’s President and Chief Investment Officer.

“Although we experienced a third quarter that was down in number of projects and job commitments, we are seeing a considerable increase in activity toward the end of this year, which shows in our project pipeline,” said Minor. “Our pipeline has grown significantly in terms of potential job commitments and capital investment, and I am excited about our prospects to attract more jobs to Ohio.”

The Board also received an update from Kristi Tanner, JobsOhio Managing Director, and Kenny McDonald, CEO of Columbus 2020 on the importance of and efforts to attract international investment to Ohio.

A final update came from JobOhio General Counsel Don Grubbs, who outlined the corporation’s plans to release a monthly report on finalized JobsOhio-funded projects. Grubbs noted that the projects will be viewable online beginning some time in the first quarter of 2014.

“Providing a monthly report on all JobsOhio funded projects will provide the public a high degree of transparency and comprehensive information on projects we complete,” said Minor.
