In 1992, the Ohio Business Roundtable was established for one sole purpose: to improve Ohio’s business climate. Since its inception, the OBRT has worked with Ohio’s governors and legislative leaders to make Ohio more business-friendly and more competitive both nationally and internationally.
The Roundtable is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization comprised of nearly 100 presidents and CEOs of Ohio’s top companies, 75 of which are headquartered in the state and more than one third of which are Fortune 1000 companies. Collectively, the members employ over 500,000 Ohioans and generate a revenue exceeding $1.48 trillion.
Because of the collective expertise and insight of OBRT members, the Roundtable is uniquely capable of bringing solutions to improve Ohio’s economic vitality and ensure that Ohio remains the ideal state in which to live, work and succeed.
From Our CEO
Welcome to the Ohio Business Roundtable.
Since its creation in 1992, the Roundtable has remained singularly focused on its mission to work with the governor and the General Assembly on policies that improve Ohio’s economic competitiveness and make our state business-friendly.
Roundtable members – the Chief Executive Officers of many of our state’s largest, most successful businesses – have helped bring about momentous change in Ohio’s economic landscape.
Our executives identify vexing, intractable issues facing Ohio’s job creators, and through their expertise, experience and resources, pursue policies that make Ohio stronger.
Ohio has a proud history of innovation and entrepreneurism, and benefits from its strategic location, abundance of natural resources, and skilled, productive workforce. It is the mission of the Ohio Business Roundtable to leverage these assets to drive economic development and ensure that Ohio remains the ideal place to live, work and prosper.
