Partner Testimonials

Jeff Circle

Jeff Schaaf, Director of Talent Strategy, Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce

"As requests for regional data became more frequent, the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce realized the need to establish an easily accessible central location for economic and workforce information. We reached out to the team at the BGSU Center for Regional Development, and they helped us brainstorm the concept and create the Toledo Region Data Center, a solution that is user friendly, accurate, and readily accessible to anyone looking for Lucas, Wood and Fulton County statistics. The process was efficient, the partnership was collaborative and the result is extremely valuable."

Joe Luzar, Northwest Ohio Workforce Initiative, Regional Growth Partnership

"The team at the BGSU Center for Regional Development has done a tremendous job in leading our regional CEDS strategy. They provide action oriented guidance which keeps partners engaged and makes certain the initiative is results driven. CRD continues to prove its value as a driver for economic development in our region."

Kati Circle 

Kati Thompson, Executive Director, Bowling Green Economic Development

"The CRD has been a tremendous resource for Bowling Green Economic Development. We have partnered with them on numerous projects — one of the most recent being a Wage & Benefit Survey among our large employers in the City of Bowling Green. The ease of working with the CRD staff, the access they have to programs and research, and the exceptional quality of the work they produce make the CRD one of our greatest assets in this community."

Mary Circle 

Mary Hinkelman, Executive Director, Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce

"Working with the Center for Regional Development has given us the opportunity to expand our understanding of how to assist our business community with fact driven data. This information has not only been a benefit to our organization, but other community leaders as well. The findings from this presentation will be the framework for a community panel as well as future programing."
