SCORE Greater Cincinnati Selects Betsy Newman as Executive Director
Hyde Park resident is author, speaker, business consultant 

Betsy Newman of Hyde Park, a speaker, business consultant and author of five leadership and career-enhancing books, has been selected executive director for the greater Cincinnati SCORE chapter

“Her role will be to take SCORE to even higher levels of achievement and recognition,” said Bill Haman, SCORE counselor and selection committee chair.  “The director’s position will strengthen our internal operation and consistency and externally enhance our standing and prestige in the community.”

Greater Cincinnati SCORE is one of the nation’s most active and acclaimed. The chapter won National SCORE Chapter of the Year in 2005. Two Cincinnati SCORE clients achieved national recognition in 2013 for SCORE Outstanding Woman-Owned Small Business and SCORE Outstanding Non-Profit.

“Betsy’s credentials, qualifications, references and connections in the community make her an outstanding selection for the position,” said Jim Stahly, incoming SCORE chapter chair. “In her private consulting company she has been engaged by P&G, Fidelity, Dow Jones. GE, Bethesda Hospital, Deloitte & Touche, and Xavier University.”

In 2012, Newman completed a five-year contract with Cygnus Corp. as director of a $10 million government project. She has also been a keynote speaker at 100-plus conferences and seminars.

She was a nominee for the Enquirer’s Woman of the Year and YWCA Career Woman of Achievement awards and serves on numerous community boards. Nearly 100 working and retired executives volunteer to counsel entrepreneurs and in-business owners throughout  southwest Ohio, northern Kentucky and southeast Indiana in marketing, operations and finance through individual and group counseling sessions and low-cost and no-cost seminars. This year, national SCORE celebrates 50 years of assisting entrepreneurs and small business owners with advice on managing their business challenges.
 
"As a group we possess the expertise to help virtually any business of any size in any industry,” said Mike Martin, SCORE chapter chairman.  “Our members enjoy helping small business owners see more clearly the pathway to success.  They are individuals who have achieved success in their own careers and place great value on giving back to their communities."

What do you do in your new position at 3CDC?
Scheduling, Payroll Management/Approval, Recruiting, Interviewing, Develop Employee Retention Strategies, Training, Performance Evaluations … To summarize all that, I make sure we have the best on-site staff equipped with the proper tools, training and support necessary to maintain the public spaces we manage, produce amazing events for guests to enjoy, provide guests with positive experiences in the city, and represent the vibrant culture of Cincinnati.  
 
What do you like best about this job?
Working in retail for five years, I told myself I would never want to sit at a desk all day. Working with 3CDC, I love that I don’t have to sit in the office all day, every day. I can tend to my administrative duties, visit our different sites to check in with my team members and then work events with them. 
 
What's great about living/working in Cincinnati? 
I love being able to watch the city grow and develop. It’s almost like living and working in an urban playground. There’s always something to do or experience. Plus, living/working downtown eliminated the 30-minute commute to Sharonville, so that’s a nice bonus also.  

What part of town do you live in, and what do you most like about the neighborhood in which you live? 
I live downtown near Fountain Square. It’s been interesting learning how to balance having business and pleasure as my “front porch,” but that’s the best part about working for a company that can bring businesses and pleasure together for some great events. One of the best decisions I made for 2014 was moving downtown.

Brian Carley

Carley named President and CEO of Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber

Cincinnati native set to assume role on March 1, brings extensive business experience to position

The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber announced today that Brian Carley will become President and CEO in early March, succeeding Ellen van der Horst. Carley is currently completing his role as a partner at Deloitte and has a 37-year accounting, audit and consulting career. He presently leads the firm's audit practice in Northeast Ohio.

The announcement was made by 2013 Chamber Board Chair Kay Geiger. Geiger said that Carley will assume his role at the country's fifth largest chamber on March 1, 2014, when van der Horst ends an eight-year tenure. Melvin J. Gravely II, incoming Board Chair, headed the search committee that selected Carley from more than 70 candidates. Carley met the chamber staff just before the public announcement.

"Having the chance to return to Greater Cincinnati and help guide the region through the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead was too good to pass up," Carley said.

"I won't be doing it alone. The Chamber is fortunate to have a talented staff, dedicated board, and invested community partners who are focused on the Chamber's primary mission: 'capturing our place as one of the world's favorite American business centers'. It's that type of collaboration that I will be depending on to continue the undeniable momentum that both the Chamber and the region have."

Geiger, President of PNC Bank said: "Brian is a dynamic leader who is committed to building on the Chamber's strong foundation of success at a pivotal time in our region's history. During his time away these last seven years, he has remained connected to our community and understands the landscape and opportunities for our future. His portfolio of experience and collaborative leadership approach will position us to capitalize on the renaissance underway."

"Brian's business acumen speaks for itself, but when we combined that experience with his ability to forge alliances and his passion for this region, he was the ideal candidate," said Gravely, President & CEO of TriVersity Construction.

Gravely added that Carley was also sought after for his significant past commitments to the Cincinnati community over his career. He has served on the boards of the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, Cincinnati Museum Center, Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation, Thomas More College, College of Mt. St. Joseph and the advisory council to Miami University's Farmer School of Business. Additionally, Carley is more than familiar with the chamber's work, having served as Treasurer for the Board's Executive Committee from 1999-2005.

Carley has offered up several priorities as he starts his tenure at the chamber:
  • Encouraging continued collaboration between community partners and investors in the Cincinnati USA Partnership, the Chamber's economic development arm, so that the region accelerates its ability to add, retain and grow jobs
  • Continuing the Chamber's central role in advocacy for business interests at the local, state and federal levels
  • Maintaining the Chamber's contributions to talent attraction and development
  • Guaranteeing high levels of service and programs that contribute to the success of Chamber member businesses
Born in Chicago, Carley paid for his college tuition at the University of Illinois by selling books door-to-door. Upon his graduation in 1976, he began his career with Arthur Andersen's Chicago office. Three years later, he transferred to their Cincinnati office, making partner in 1986. He became a Cincinnati office managing partner in 1997 while also overseeing the firm's global aviation industry practice.

In 2002, he moved to Deloitte's Cincinnati office, where as a partner he concentrated on audit services to a wide variety of regional companies. Asked to lead the firm's audit efforts of a large Cleveland company, he moved to that market in 2006, eventually heading up the firm's audit practice there.

Carley is married with four grown children. Three of his children call Cincinnati home. He enjoys spending time with his family and has remained a Bengals season ticket holder for the last 25 years.

Local jobs at GigitJobs.com

What do you do in your new position at the Cincinnati Development Fund?
My primary responsibilities include all CDF communication including our website, press releases, public relations, event planning, grant writing, tax credit applications, and implementing a new social media presence, e-mail newsletter and online video channel. I'm also the in-house technology consultant and oversee the organization's information technology equipment and network, recommend changes to software and hardware, plus hire outside consultants to help with the same. I oversee the administrative operations, including recommendations for implementing technology and other, less technical, methods to improve office efficiencies.
 
What do you like best about this job?
CDF is a great organization with a great history. We are about to begin our 25th year and have a long trail of amazing projects impacting just about every city neighborhood. When traditional lending cannot accommodate projects able to transform neighborhoods and galvanize bigger investments, CDF steps in to make dreams and hopes reality. You may not know it, but you have seen CDF's humble touch all across this town. Getting to be a small (and new) part of this growth, re-birth and rejuvenation in the city's vast urban infrastructure fits my personality perfectly and quenches this old reporter's curiosity and desire to know what's happening months—and sometimes years—before it actually happens. Keeping Cincinnati moving forward is a big reward working at CDF.
 
What's great about living/working in Cincinnati? 
Cincinnati is special. There's just no question about it. The biggest small town in the world, I think, with just about everything the big town has to offer, in a neat, easy-to-digest package. But the best part has to be the people: We love our town. It's apparent in how critically we debate important civic issues. Covering politics, I was always amazed at how passionate citizens—even ones who live way beyond the city limits—feel about things that may not directly effect them. It's amazing how seemingly the whole town comes out for the Opening Day parade for a baseball team whose season hasn't even begun. How we share the pride in places like Union Terminal or our world-class zoo and laude our connection to and shake our heads in disbelief when we tout our connections to Jerry Springer and Pete Rose. And we may not all agree on which exactly which taste we love the most, but everyone agrees: To be here is to love the chili. Few other places can bind themselves together socially like Cincinnatians can to each other. Just run into one somewhere far from town, and you'll see the instant connection and love for this place. It's truly remarkable.
 
What part of town do you live in and what do you most like about the neighborhood in which you live? 
I live in Mount Auburn on the cusp of Over-the-Rhine. My favorite part of Mount Auburn is the amazing view off my back balcony of Over-the-Rhine, downtown and Price Hill. Plus, the nationally recognized Christ Hospital a few steps from my front door, the birthplace of a U.S. president is equally as close. Plus, it's very affordable and close to where I work in Over-the-Rhine.
