JobsOhio head Mark Kvamme toured several southeast Ohio businesses during an economic development tour last week.

 
On Wednesday Nov. 9, Kvamme met with business leaders, energy producers and Representative Andy Thompson from the 93rd District.
 
"Visiting several important communities in southeast Ohio with Representative Thompson and key business leaders was a tremendous benefit to me," Kvamme said.
 
Kvamme visited Guernsey, Noble, Monroe and Washington Counties, and spoke with representatives from the rail industry, oil and gas company leaders and a Marietta hardware store owner to brainstorm possibilities for economic development in the region.
 
"I am delighted that Mark Kvamme was able to visit southeastern Ohio and see the great possibilities for economic development in the region," said Representative Thompson. "Southeastern Ohio has the natural resources, land, and available workforce needed for lasting economic growth."
 
Kvamme was appointed as Interim Chief Investment Officer and President of JobsOhio in July. Kvamme was previously the director of the Ohio Department of Development, a partner at Sequoia Capital, and Chairman and CEO of CKS Group.
