Looking Back at 2018

We have a simple, straightforward mission at the Dayton Development Coalition: To recruit, expand and retain jobs in the Dayton Region. When the year ends and we look back on our work, those three things show the growth of the region’s economic base. 

In 2018, companies committed to create nearly 3,900 new jobs and keep more than 13,000 jobs in our region. Those projects will generate more than $202 million in new payroll and $845 million in capital investment. Wright-Patterson AFB continues to have a significant impact on our region, with nearly 30,000 employees, the largest single-site employer in the state. Our recent economic impact analysis shows our local federal and military installations have a local economic impact of more than $4 billion.

Those results build on 25 years of hard work by hundreds of local economic development professionals. Since the DDC began in 1994 as the Miami Valley Economic Development Coalition, our region fought back from a major recession, Wright-Patt has nearly doubled in size, our regional economy has strengthened and diversified.

Our investor list is filled with companies who have been with us from the very beginning, businesses who came to the region and wanted to support economic development, and homegrown companies that continue to grow. Your support drives our success and sets our course for the future.  

Our community has come to define collaboration and partnership. When we work together, we make our own success. Thank you for your continued support of the DDC and the Dayton Region.

All our best,  

Jeffrey C. Hoagland  

President and CEO
