County Executive Armond Budish to Hold Meetings with 100 Business Leaders in First 100 Days

CLEVELAND - Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish announced today that he will meet with 100 business leaders during his first 100 days in office.

In his inaugural address, Budish pledged to make job creation a top priority of his administration and called for collaboration between government, non-profit organizations, and businesses.

“We have a unique and diverse blend of talent, experience, and brainpower among the leaders in our business community. Their input is critical to turning Cuyahoga County into an economic powerhouse,” said Budish. “I want to hear first-hand about businesses’ opportunities and challenges to being successful right here in Cuyahoga County.”

Budish will coordinate with Greater Cleveland Partnership’s CEO Joe Roman and other organizations on this endeavor. At the end of Budish’s first 100 days in office, Cuyahoga County will publish a full report listing the meetings, highlighting the common themes, and laying out a course of action.

“The Greater Cleveland Partnership is eager and proud to assist Executive Budish on this initiative,” said Roman. “Executive Budish understands what it takes to build a strong business community and to create jobs. I look forward to growing our partnership with Cuyahoga County and, more importantly, helping them grow our existing companies, support the creation of new businesses, and attract even more jobs to our region.”
