Klus leaving Port Authority for Dublin job


WILMINGTON — Jennifer Klus is leaving her post of Economic Development Director of the Clinton County Port Authority to become Director of Economic Development for the City of Dublin, Ohio.

“We wholeheartedly wish her the best on this next step in her career,” said Walt Rowsey, Chair of the Clinton County Port Authority Board. “She has been a great help in growing our county-wide Economic Development Program, and her influence on it will be missed.”

Klus will begin with the City of Dublin later this month.

She started with the Port Authority in January of 2020 and has been involved in several projects including county-wide COVID communication and small business grant efforts, a county-wide Housing Study, the Clinton County Workforce Collaborative initiative, and the recent Polaris, Inc. expansion. Of particular note, Klus initiated efforts to bring SBDC services to Clinton County, which have been widely utilized.

“I have enjoyed the work and environment here,” said Klus, “and greatly enjoyed working with Port Authority Staff and Board. This is wonderful opportunity for me professionally and will allow me to continue to do Economic Development on a larger scale.”

“Jennifer is a consummate professional, an exceptional colleague, and driver of economic development activity. She has had a significant impact on our organization and community, and her shoes will be hard to fill,” said Dan Evers, Executive Director of the Clinton County Port Authority.

The countywide collaboration will continue with the current Port Authority Staff as an evaluation is made for next steps. Economic Development questions, projects and concerns should be directed to Evers.
