Our next meeting is:

Findlay - Hancock County Workforce Coalition Update

Tony Iriti, Director of Findlay Hancock County Economic Development, a division of the Alliance

In Hancock County there is a looming shortage of workers in the work force just as jobs are growing. The coalition is a response to this problem and counts 35 – area agencies or businesses as its members. The group is charged with establishing a coordinated response that seeks to energize local education, social agencies, apprenticeships, and work-force training programs. FAHRA (Findlay Area Human Resource Association) donated to the coalition in 2014 supporting their efforts. This program will be an update as to progress that has been made and the future efforts needed.

About Tony: Tony Iriti is a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Upon arriving in Findlay in 1979, he was hired by the Commissioners to create the first multi-user computer system for Hancock County. His private sector background includes having worked for Hewlett Packard and RCA. His political career began when he was elected to Findlay City Council and subsequently appointed Hancock County. During his time as Auditor, he implemented an on-line Real Estate record system, a Geographic Information System, and the county’s first Comprehensive Annual Financial Report was developed. In 2004, Tony was elected Mayor of the City of Findlay. Some of his major accomplishments include the clean-up of a 50 year old tire dump, development of a youth sports park which included the renovation of the city’s 35 year old ice arena and the addition of five baseball/softball fields, and led the City’s first Strategic Visioning process. During his term, Findlay experienced four major flood events from December 2006 through August 2007, the latter being equivalent to a 100 year flood event. In January 2008, Tony became President of the Northwest Ohio Flood Mitigation Partnership; a non-profit organization funded 100% by the private sector whose purpose was to expedite the planning and design of the long-term mitigation efforts and turn the project back to the public sector within three years. Today, Tony is the Director of Findlay Hancock County Economic Development, a division of the Alliance.
