  • COSE, GCP's Steve Millard Named President, CEO of Greater Akron Chamber

    Steve Millard, executive VP of the Greater Cleveland Partnership and executive director of COSE, has been named President and CEO of the Greater Akron Chamber. He replaces Richard Norton who has served as Interim President since April 2017. Millard is expected to join the Chamber on or before June 4.

    Millard has been with GCP and its predecessor organization, the Greater Cleveland Growth Association, since 1997 and has served as COSE’s President and Executive Director since 1999. 

    In addition to his work leading GCP’s small business initiatives, he has had responsibility for its portfolio of member products and services, small business advocacy efforts, member services and a number of economic development initiatives. 

    “I appreciate the confidence the Greater Akron Chamber’s leadership has in me and am excited about the opportunities ahead for Greater Akron and the coalition of innovative leaders that is working on a variety of transformational opportunities for the region.  I look forward to being a part of that team and bringing my experience and perspective to the discussion,” Millard said.

    “My work with GCP has brought me into frequent contact with leaders and institutions across the region and I have seen Akron making a generational shift in civic and institutional leadership that is driving new opportunities.  The chance to be a part of that work is one of the key reasons I think this is the right opportunity at the right time for me,” he added.

  • County Approves Consumer Initiative, Including Crucial GCP Member Feedback

    Legislation has been approved by Cuyahoga County Council related to the enforcement of consumer protection laws. The Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) is encouraged by changes that were ultimately made, at our members’ urging, to the initiative. Amendments were included in the measure that bring the statute of limitations on such cases in-line with the Ohio Attorney General’s parameters and limit the possibility of a business being scrutinized by the County and the Attorney General simultaneously. 

    The Cuyahoga County's Department of Consumer Affairs role, in part, has been to educate the public on consumer protection laws and mediate complaints consumers levy.

    Upon introduction of the legislation, GCP’s steady, pragmatic approach included direct communication with GCP volunteer leaders, key stakeholders, state, and county officials. GCP worked with these parties on specific provisions that were included in the final ordinance that aim to eliminate undue burdens on the business community and increase accountability. The purpose of this collective work was to help ensure the ordinance mirrors state law and is concurrent with the state’s consumer affairs efforts, without needlessly duplicating services that impede economic stability and growth in Cuyahoga County.
