Gov Kasich talks about changes in leadership at JobsOhio
President and interim chief investment officer Mark Kvamme resigns from position. 
by WKSU's STATEHOUSE CORRESPONDENT JO INGLES


Reporter

In The Region:

The man who’s been heading JobsOhio, the state’s non-profit job creation corporation, is stepping down after less than two years. Governor John Kasich says Mark Kvamme has done a good job getting the organization up and running.

“I’ve felt all along that we’d have Mark get it going as a startup and that at some point, he’s going to want to go out and do other things. His advice, counsel and friendship is not changing with me and he will be involved in projects that I think are important. But in terms of JobsOhio, its strength is that we have a number of people, a great team of people, who can actually talk to business people on a peer to peer basis. So it’s not just one person who builds a great team. You have your leaders but at the same time, it’s the strength of the team that carries you forward.”

When Kvamme steps down at the next JobsOhio meeting in November, he will be replaced with John Minor, an investment banker who has worked with JobsOhio since day one.
