In 2017, the regional economic development partners across the 18 counties of Northeast Ohio worked together to achieve or exceed goals set by JobsOhio in four categories: projects completed, jobs created/committed, payroll added/committed and capital investment. Let’s keep the momentum going!

The celebration correlates with the International Economic Development Corporation’s National Economic Development Week, an opportunity to honor and celebrate economic development professionals.

The event will feature keynote Tim Timken, Chairman, CEO and President of TimkenSteel Corporation, who has been part of this regional revitalization from the beginning. He will share his insights into why Timken and the Timken Foundation believe in and support Team NEO and our entire network of partners in these vital efforts.
