FT. MITCHELL, Ky. — The Northern Kentucky Tri-County Economic Development Corporation (Tri-ED) has appointed Johnna Reeder Kleymeyer to the Tri-ED Board of Directors.
Kleymeyer is the executive vice president of performance and growth at AssureCare and founder of JRK Executive Strategies.
Prior to joining AssureCare, Kleymeyer served as interim dean of the Haile/U.S. Bank College of Business at Northern Kentucky University. She led REDI Cincinnati as president and CEO from 2014 through September 2019. During her leadership of REDI, she oversaw 215 projects that created 22,000 new jobs and attracted $2.4 billion in new capital to the region.
Tri-ED is governed by a 23-member board of directors comprised of business and community leaders who are unpaid volunteers. The Boone, Campbell and Kenton County Fiscal Courts each appoint one member of the board of directors. The nominating committee – which includes the judge-executives from Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties; the board chair; vice-chair; treasurer; and secretary – approves nominees who are then considered and appointed by the full board of directors.
