Statement from JobsOhio Regarding Associate Compensation

COLUMBUS – In a move designed to provide more openness and accountability, JobsOhio, the state’s private economic development corporation, today released the compensation information for the organization’s top executives.

“Ohio is a premier destination for investment, business and quality of life. JobsOhio is a ‘best in class’ economic development corporation and provides competitive advantages for Ohio to compete globally for capital investment and jobs. Foremost of these advantages is JobsOhio’s unique private structure, which allows for speed, agility and confidentiality when working with the private sector while protecting Ohio’s negotiating posture from competitors.

“Additionally, this structure also enables the organization to compete for the acquisition of specialized human capital essential to execute the mission. Sharing compensation information of top executives does not materially impact this competitiveness, and JobsOhio releases this information each year and makes it available on our public website. However, as part of a commitment to openness and partnership, we are releasing that information earlier than required.
