This session will highlight Stephanie McCloud’s first-hand experience of actively creating a leadership path via work, not just a resume. She has done it all – from running a private Columbus law firm and serving on community boards to being a corporate vice president, legal counsel to former Governor George Voinovich, chief counsel in Ohio’s Attorney General’s office and, now, chief of staff to Governor Mike DeWine. Join us for this presentation to learn about her approach to understanding team culture and why driving that dynamic is the key to success, wherever your career path leads you.

About the virtual presenter: 

On January 1, 2023, Stephanie McCloud was appointed as Chief of Staff to Governor Mike DeWine. She serves as chief advisor to the governor and leads the execution of the governor’s strategic priorities. Prior to this, she served as Administrator/CEO of the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation (BWC) since 2019.
McCloud is an experienced executive with a diverse background that encompasses more than 20 years of experience in public administration and workers' compensation. Before coming to the DeWine administration, she served as senior vice president at Sedgwick Claims Management Services while managing her private Columbus law firm, McCloud Law LLC.
She began her career as a staff attorney at BWC before serving as legal counsel to both former Governor George Voinovich and the Ohio Department of Transportation. She later joined the office of former Attorney General Jim Petro, first as senior deputy attorney general before advancing to chief counsel.
McCloud is also a former Truro Township Trustee and active community leader. She served six years on the Counselors, Social Workers, Marriage & Family Therapists Board. She also served on the board of the Maryhaven behavioral health and addiction treatment center for over a decade.
During the peak of the COVID pandemic in November 2020, McCloud was appointed as the Director of the Ohio Department of Health. Governor Mike DeWine chose Stephanie for her knowledge of state government and management expertise, which were both needed during the pandemic. She continued as director for ten months until her return to BWC as administrator in August 2021.
McCloud earned a bachelor's degree in journalism from Ohio University and a law degree from the Capital University Law School.
Administrator McCloud was a recipient of Columbus Business First's "40 Under 40 Award" in 2010, and in 2019 she was selected as a "Women to Watch" honoree by the international publication, Business Insurance. In addition, she was chosen as a member of the 2021 Future50 class by Columbus CEO Magazine. In 2020, McCloud was awarded the Small Business Advocate Award by the Greater Cleveland Partnership awarded McCloud in recognition of her commitment to small businesses and support of state policies that foster job creation and business growth.
