25 Jan 2021
The leader of Ohio's private economic development group says the state has a "generational opportunity" to emerge from the pandemic stronger than ever. And the Dayton region will play a big role in making this opportunity come to fruition.
J.P. Nauseef, president and CEO of JobsOhio, provided the keynote address at the Dayton Business Journal's 2021 Economic Forum. During his presentation, Nauseef noted the "interesting, exciting and transformative year" that was 2020, and said this year is "shaping up to be equally transformative."
Despite the pandemic, JobsOhio took in $1.4 billion in revenue during fiscal year 2020. Aided by this funding and revenue from prior years, the organization was able to pump hundreds of millions of dollars into new programs related to the state's pandemic response.
