COLUMBUS, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Governor Mike DeWine today joined the Board of Directors of JobsOhio in
announcing that J.P. Nauseef has been selected as the next president and
chief investment officer of JobsOhio.
The JobsOhio board has completed its search process for the
organization’s next president and chief investment officer. Last year,
the board engaged executive search firm Heidrick & Struggles to assist
with the process.
“J.P. Nauseef is the right person to lead JobsOhio,” said Governor Mike
DeWine. “His extensive experience in the economic development field, and
passion for selling Ohio as the best location for new and expanding
businesses will help us take Ohio to the next level.”
J.P. Nauseef and his family live in Dayton. He is a former U.S. Air
Force officer with 30 years of experience in the public, private and
non-profit sectors with a longstanding passion for and focus on
technology, innovation and economic development. He is currently
chairman and co-founder of Krush Media Group and continues to be a
strong advocate for military missions and families. In addition, J.P.
was the president and CEO of the Dayton Development Coalition, which is
one of JobsOhio’s regional partner organizations.
Nauseef has received numerous awards for his professional and civic
contributions including the Air Force Distinguished Public Service
Award. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Management Information
Systems from the University of Dayton, and his Master of Science in
Systems Management from The University of Southern California.
Nauseef will start in March and will replace John Minor, who has been
president and chief investment officer of JobsOhio since 2012.
JobsOhio announced last year that Minor would leave the
organization after the search was concluded. Minor will serve as senior
advisor to the JobsOhio board until his departure on March 29, 2019.
