Clark County Administrator Jennifer Hutchinson was named to the Dayton Business Journal’s 2020 Bizwomen Power 50, which was announced Thursday.
The list, compiled by the Dayton Business Journal Editorial Board, consists of business owners, high-level executives, elected officials and local government leaders, among others. Clark State Community College President Jo Alice Blondin was named to the list by the DBJ in 2019.
Hutchinson was hired in 2016 as the third full-time county administrator — and first female administrator — in Clark County history. She holds an MBA from the University of Cincinnati and has more than 15 years of experience in state and local government. She previously worked for both the City of Wyoming and the City of Marysville.
"Jenny works with many competing goals and priorities in her position as the top executive in Clark County government," said Clark County Commission President Melanie Flax Wilt. "She manages all those different priorities and personalities and somehow stays organized and keeps things moving forward at all times. When the inevitable challenges arise, Jenny seeks to find solutions that will best serve the taxpayers and keep our community thriving."
Hutchinson oversees a general fund budget of about $45 million and about 340 employees. In recent years, the county has undergone several capital improvement projects, including major renovations at the Springview Government Center, the A.B. Graham Building and a new 9-1-1 Communications Center.
