CLEVELAND—In January, County Executive Armond Budish announced an initiative to meet with 100 business leaders during his first 100 days in office. As of last week, Budish reached the 100 business leaders mark and he continues to meet with business leaders throughout Cuyahoga County.

“We’ve reached our goal to meet with 100 business leaders across the region but we certainly won’t stop there,” said Budish. “I’ve had candid and insightful dialogue with job creators of all types. This county is filled with innovative leaders with bold ideas to expand business and move our region forward and I intend to continue these conversations throughout my administration. These business leaders have helped me to develop and refine my vision for economic development and job creation.”

During these meetings, the Budish Administration has bridged together businesses of all types to hear, first-hand, their perspectives on what accelerates or impedes job creation in Cuyahoga County. Budish has met with businesses such as: A Chiropractic Healing, Black Bird Fly Boutique, OPTIMA, Digizoom Media, Ernest & Young, JumpStart, and OnShift, to name a few.

After the first 100 days, the Budish Administration will publish a report that contains a full list of the meetings, common themes, and a course of action. This Report will help guide the County’s next iteration of policies and programs that help get more people to work.
