“I’m honored and excited to be given this opportunity,” Ekey said. “Clinton County has so many exciting assets and opportunities. I look forward to joining the Port Authority team and building an economic development program that leverages our assets and creates opportunity.”
Named by the Ohio Economic Development Association as the 2019 “economic development professional of the year,” Ekey has been working in development since 1995, serving the communities of Hamilton and Harrison prior to her position in Middletown.
Since 2010, the Port Authority has owned Wilmington Air Park. It operates and manages more than 1,900 acres surrounding a two-runway airport, with nearly 3 million square feet of office, warehouse and hangar space.
