JobsOhio leader Mark Kwamme is stepping down.  He was appointed to head the agency last year after Governor Kasich and lawmakers created it.  But since then, Kwamme has gotten married.  He now wants to start a business with his new wife.  So Kwamme, a former California based venture capitalist, will resign at the next JobsOhio board meeting on November first. 

Kasich struggled to find a place for Kvamme in his administration. The governor removed Kvamme from his first job as state development director after a lawsuit alleged his out-of-state residency made him ineligible for the job.

Kvamme was named Kasich's director of job creation, then was moved to JobsOhio.

Someone who’s already working with the agency, will step up to take over Kwamme’s role at that time.  John Minor, an investment banker who’s worked with JobsOhio since day one, will become the new President and Chief Investment officer.
