January 15, 2016 – Cleveland-headquartered executive search firm The Carmon Group has recruited Joe Cimperman as the next president of Global Cleveland. Chris Carmon, founder and president, led the assignment.
Currently serving his seventh term and 18th year on the Cleveland City Council, Councilman Cimperman is a senior member of the body and highly regarded by his constituents. He currently represents Ward 3, one of the most diverse in the City, which includes downtown Cleveland.
“We are very fortunate to have someone of Joe’s stature and known leadership qualities at the front of our organization moving ahead,” said Global Cleveland board chair David Fleshler. “As a child of an immigrant who grew up on Cleveland’s east side, Joe deeply understands how newcomers to our region need to be welcomed and connected so they can become integral, contributing members of our community. Joe lives the values of diversity and knows how to bring people together to achieve a greater good.”
“I congratulate Global Cleveland for a very good choice in selecting Joe Cimperman,” said Mayor Frank G. Jackson. “Joe has always shown great passion and compassion in standing with both the immigrant and refugee population here in Cleveland. His work ethic and leadership speak volumes to his capabilities.”
