The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport started 2017 by bringing Southwest Airlines to our region and closed January with the once-in-a-lifetime announcement that Amazon is building its worldwide cargo hub at CVG – delivering 2,700 prime jobs and a $1.5 billion investment. Congratulations to Candace McGraw and her CVG team and thanks to the many businesses, organizations, and individuals who continue to work together to make good things happen in our region.
Speaking of individuals making good things happen, the Cincy Magazine Power 100 Leadership Forum will be held February 16, 7:15-9:30 a.m., at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland. This year’s panelists - Daniel Knowles of the Tristate Veterans Community Alliance, City Council Member Chris Seelbach, Kroger’s Reuben Shaffer and the Cincinnati Chamber’s Mary Stagaman – will discuss targeting and embracing diversity in our region. See you there.
