What our Partners are Saying...

"Our school has more knowledge concerning the needs of our local business and industry because of the efforts of the BRN...[The BRN communicates] the needs which result in assisting our school in delivering impactful and direct services and programs."  Lathe Moore, Adult Education Director, Pike County Career Technology Center


"I write to express my satisfaction with the Business Resource Network (BRN).  The BRN has a presence in eight of the 18-county congressional district which I represent.  Since July 2012, the BRN has been a staple for economic development in those counties.  The BRN staff has worked tirelessly to both save and create jobs in Appalachia, Ohio.  I am a proud member of the BRN, and can speak directly to their professionalism, passion, and persistence in promoting business and workforce development needs.  Again, I commend the work the BRN does in our communities.  This program is an asset to Eastern Ohio."  Representative Bill Johnson, Congress of the United States


"...it is indeed a pleasure to work with the Account Executives with the Business Resource Network.  I firmly believe that there cannot be too many services for entrepreneurs in a community and the Business Resource Network is a valuable resource to add to the services provided in both Adams and Brown County."  Russ Brewer, Enterprise Center Coordinator, Southern State Community College


"As the Director of the Chamber of Commerce in Adams County, I feel the information obtained by the BRN (Business Resource Network) is good information for businesses."  Deana Swayne, Adams County Chamber of Commerce


"The Ohio BWC, Youngstown Service Office, truly values the partnership we have developed with the BRN.  Over the past three years, our service office has received over 200 referrals through the BRN process.  The BRN is our number one referral stream.  These referrals have allowed the BWC to consult with employers on Safety and Health Services, Safety Incentive Grants, Safety Training, Discount Programs, and assist employers with claims management.  We have found the BRN representatives to be professional, easy to work with and dedicated to assisting business in our area.  Thanks for allowing us to be part of this awesome network and looking forward to working with you in the future."  David Costantino, Employer Management Supervisor, Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation


"Thank you for making me feel welcomed to the BRN group.  The BRN Partners are a well-rounded group and the Business Resource Network is a great networking tool for helping people in our area become gainfully employed.  This is a nice program."   Dirk Decoy, Belmont College Workforce Development
