Bruce Johnson

Appointed Lieutenant Governor of Ohio by Governor Bob Taft in January 2005, Bruce Johnson is leading the effort to promote Ohio as the premier business location in the nation. He does this not only as Lt. Governor, but also as Director of the Ohio Department of Development, a position he has held since September 2001. Since that time, Johnson has worked diligently to fulfill the Department’s mission of job creation, job retention and expanding job opportunities for the state’s highly skilled workforce.

Under the leadership of Johnson, Site Selection magazine awarded Governor Taft and Ohio with the prestigious Governor’s Cup for being the top state in the Nation for the number of new and expanded facilities in 2003.

In 2004, Johnson was chosen by Governor Taft to chair the Ohio Jobs Cabinet to streamline the state’s services to businesses in order to promote job creation and foster the continued development of the state’s workforce.
