Finalists selected for new economic development position


The Union County-Marysville Economic Development Partnership has narrowed the pool of candidates for a new project coordinator position to three finalists.

The Development Project Coordinator will function as a general project manager for the Union County Community Improvement Corporation (CIC). The individual who fills the position will initiate programs that further the economic development of Union County, Marysville and the 33 Smart Mobility Corridor.

The three finalists for the position are Bradley Ingraham, Aaron M. Patrick and Thomas Wisemiller.

Ingraham currently works at the Ohio Department of Education as a legislative liaison within the Office of Policy and Legislative Affairs. He received a Masters of Business Administration from the College of Wooster and a Bachelor of Arts from Capital University.

Patrick is presently the program manager of the Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partnership at the Ohio Development Services Agency. He received a Bachelor of Arts from Wright State University.

Wisemiller served as the economic development manager for Warrenton, Virginia until February 2019. He received a Masters of Regional Planning from Cornell University and a Bachelor of Arts from The Ohio State University.

The development project coordinator will act under the direction of the executive director of the Union County Community Improvement Corporation.

The position description includes administering Union County’s business expansion and retention program, managing the database of available commercial and industrial sites, assisting with business creation and entrepreneurship programs and acting as a liaison to the local community for technical and support services.

Candidates were told that in addition to a degree and a minimum of five years experience, “strong knowledge of local and state economic development policies and tools is a must.”

“Familiarity with the automotive industry or smart mobility technology is a plus, but not required,” according to information about the position.

Salary for the position has been set between $62,000 and $78,000, depending on the candidate’s qualifications and experience. This will be accompanied by a benefits package with partial reimbursement of healthcare benefits, a 401K contribution and paid time off.

Eric S. Phillips, economic development director, said the position will be funded by additional monies from the City of Marysville and Union County.

He said second interviews with each of the finalists are set for June 18 and a decision will be made by the end of the month, with a start date in mid-July.
