Fund for our Economic Future asserted the need for new Northeast Ohio leadership in its “Two Tomorrows” report last year.
Now, the group’s president, Brad Whitehead, is stepping down after 15 years.
“I didn’t want to be standing on some perch saying (the region needs new leadership),” Whitehead, 59, said. “I wanted to lead with an example. I’m still planning to work on things near and dear to my heart, but every day I see great people who are ready to step up.”
