Todd Kleismit is a 2013 graduate of Leadership Ohio and has been a passionate advocate for it ever since. He now serves as the board president and loves it because the mission of Leadership Ohio matches up so well with his job as director of community and government relations for the Ohio History Connection. Todd is an Army veteran of Operation Desert Storm who returned back to Ohio to pursue college and a career that has included jobs in the private sector, the Ohio Senate, U.S. House of Representatives and the nonprofit world. Todd loves both Ohio and its history. He enjoys traveling the state, making connections through Leadership Ohio – always adopting the leadership mindset of the student, asking meaningful questions.
