Talking Jobs with CEOs

In Ohio and nationally, there’s a mismatch between in-demand jobs and workers trained to fill them.

By the year 2025, 60 percent of Americans will need credentials beyond a high school diploma – whether a college degree or high-skills training, according to Lumina Foundation's 2019 Strong Nation report. However, the report found fewer than 45 percent of Ohioans have the right kind of training to fill them.

In this series, we talk with CEOs of Ohio companies who rely on a well-trained workforce. We explore well-paying and good growth positions that require post-secondary education but not necessarily a college degree.

Tom Zenty, CEO University Hospitals


Kyle Dreyfuss Wells, CEO Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District


Christopher Mapes, CEO Lincoln Electric
