Lisa Patt-McDaniel Named Development Director

Gov. Ted Strickland announced Wednesday he has promoted interim Department of Development Director Lisa Patt-McDaniel to serve as the agency’s director.

A DOD employee since 1990, Ms. McDaniel has served as interim chief for the last four months. She is the first woman to lead the agency.

“I am incredibly impressed with the leadership, commitment, deep knowledge and sound judgment Lisa has demonstrated not only as interim director but in her years as a leader in economic and workforce development for Ohio,” Mr. Strickland said. “Lisa has listened to our workers and businesses and knows what they need. Lisa is helping to position Ohio for long-term prosperity.”
