J.P. Nauseef, the president and chief investment officer of JobsOhio, addressed the OMA’s Government Affairs Committee this week, sharing his vision and strategy to create and retain jobs, while growing the state’s economy.
Nauseef told committee members that since taking the reins at Ohio’s top economic development entity three months ago, he has spent considerable time meeting with economic development professionals and business leaders across the state to better understand their needs. He has repeatedly heard concerns regarding available workforce to fill existing jobs, as well as the need for a “robust inventory of sites.” As an Air Force veteran, Nauseef said he is also prioritizing the Ohio’s ability to attract and support additional military activity.
Chaired by Scott Corbitt, region vice president for Anheuser-Busch, this week’s OMA Government Affairs meeting also included briefings on key policy issues including: transportation funding, energy legislation, workforce development, tort reform, and workers’ compensation policy.
The committee will meet again August 22. 6/5/2019
