JA of OKI Partners announces incoming president, celebrates retiring president

Junior Achievement of OKI Partners is pleased to announce Greg Ebel as the incoming president of the chapter.  Ebel is filling the vacancy of retiring president John Weil.

Ebel comes to Junior Achievement most recently from the Deaconess Foundation where he served as the consulting executive director.  Prior to serving in that role, Ebel was the Health Collaborative's first full time executive director.

Ebel began his professional business career as a human resources representative with Armco, Inc.  He then spent twelve years with PNC Bank, Ohio as its first human services resources executive and later as senior vice president of its private banking group. Ebel later joined the E.W. Scripps Company as its corporate vice president of human resources.

Community service has been a hallmark of Ebel's career, dedicating much time and talents to area organizations.  He served in volunteer leadership roles for a number of non-profit organizations including the American Red Cross, INROADS, United Way, Fine Arts Fund and more.  Ebel led both the Cincinnati May Festival and Cincinnati INROADS as board president.  He is a past participant of Leadership Cincinnati and a recipient of the Cincinnati Business Courier's 40 Under 40 and Second Act Awards.

Earning a bachelor's degree from Eastern Kentucky University, Ebel graduated from Miami of Ohio with a master's degree in business.  He is accredited by the Society for Human Resources Management as a Senior Professional in Human Resources, the profession's highest distinction.

JA OKI Partners would like to thank Weil whose work for Junior Achievement spanned 40 years.  Weil completed tenures at multiple JA chapters including Tampa, Milwaukee, and New Jersey.  From 2006 until his retirement in 2016, Weil served as president of JA OKI Partners.  A retirement reception was held at Paycor, Inc. on December 13, 2016.

The Worth "Weil" Fund has been set up for those who would like to honor the leadership of Weil through a contribution.  The fund will support JA programs at schools with a significant number of at-risk students.  For more information or to make a contribution, please contact Nancy Finke at (513) 346-7100 ext. 105 or nancy.finke@ja.org.
