OhioBWC - Common:  Regional busisness development managers

BWC's Regional Business Development Managers

Our regional business development managers function as ambassadors for BWC’s Administrator. They coordinate outreach to stakeholders throughout Ohio. They also act as intermediaries to help employers with needs ranging from program participation to safety training.

Additionally, the four managers – covering four distinct areas of the state – help connect employers with appropriate BWC staff members to help address an employer’s specific needs.
