Jacoby to manage APEG’s shale-related economic development

Mike Jacoby has joined the Appalachian Partnership for Economic Growth (APEG) to direct economic development related to Ohio’s shale play. The new position was funded by JobsOhio in recognition of the current and future opportunities for attracting new industries and jobs related to the state’s Marcellus and Utica shale resources.

Jacoby has spent the past 20 years working in economic development in Appalachian Ohio. He comes to APEG from the Zanesville-Muskingum County Port Authority, where he was executive director for the past five years and participated in the $5.7 million site sale to Halliburton for its Utica operations hub from which it will base several different oil and gas related business units.  

Jacoby’s other Ohio economic development positions include leadership for the Southeastern Ohio Port Authority, Marietta; Progress Alliance, Steubenville; the Governor’s Regional Economic Development Office, Region 11; and Jackson-Vinton Economic Development, Jackson.

Jacoby holds a master’s degree in public administration from Ohio University.
