Ray Hexamer, CEO and President of Stak Economic Development Board, spoke about his organization and Strengthening Stark's doing to keep and engage talent in Stark County. Strengthening Stark has been around for 38 years and is all about talent development. 

Here's the major problem the county is facing: 

In 2000 the population in Stark County was 378,000 

In 2040 it is projected to be 355,000, a 6% decline.

In the wake of new business opportunities, Ray said this is a problem. But, he said, "Progress begins when you acknowledge and face your challenges."


Find out what they did to turn this situation around in three short years.
