Administrator named to Workforce Investment Board of Southwest Ohio
BATAVIA, Ohio (July 29, 2014) – Adam Jones has been named administrator of the Workforce Investment Board of Southwest Ohio.
Jones held several management positions at Butler County Job and Family Services (JFS) before being selected by the workforce board, which oversees public workforce policy for Butler, Warren and Clermont Counties, and is administered in Clermont County. Federal workforce dollars, primarily used to provide services to businesses and job seekers, help fill the skills gaps identified by a region’s employers. On July 22, President Obama signed into law the Workforce Opportunity and Innovation Act, which gives local employers more of a voice in how training dollars are used.
Most recently, Jones was assistant director of Butler County JFS, overseeing workforce development, children’s services and public assistance. He also directed the OhioMeansJobs Center in Butler County, where he restructured the one stop to focus on building business and economic development relationships. Jones lives in Fairfield and serves on City Council there, and is currently vice mayor.
