Board of Advisors
As a member of the Business U Advisory Board, Ron ensures that workforce boards have access to Business U’s learning events and technology from a national perspective to move them to a next level of performance in regional business engagement as outlined in WIOA. Prior to his role at NAWB, Ron was the founding CEO of the Three Rivers Workforce Investment Board in Pittsburgh, where under his leadership the organization focused on producing labor market research, working with public educators on improved student career information, supporting community leaders in the development of regional benchmarks, and establishing the Regional Workforce Collaborative whose membership includes community colleges, workforce investment boards, employers, labor, and economic development professionals. Before joining the Three Rivers Workforce Board, he worked in Washington, DC, first on loan to the U.S. Department of Labor for the Enterprise Project, and then for the National Alliance of Business. Ron and his team at NAWB have been integral into getting the new WIOA authorized.
