Youngstown Warren Regional Chamber Foundation President Guy Coviello was one of 44 people from around the State of Ohio to be inducted into the Association of Ohio Commodores recently.

The Association is a group of individuals recognized by the Governor of Ohio with the state’s most distinguished honor, The Executive Order of the Ohio Commodore. Each year, outstanding Ohioans are recognized for their business accomplishment, acumen and leadership with this prestigious honor.

Coviello oversees all facets of the Youngstown Warren Regional Chamber Foundation, a 501(c)(3)-exempted supporting organization for the Regional Chamber, including the creation of programs that help with economic prosperity and quality of life in the Valley. He joined the Regional Chamber in September 2014 as the vice president of Government Affairs, advocating at the federal, state and local levels for issues that are important to the Valley’s business community.

In 2018, then-Ohio Gov. John Kasich appointed Coviello to serve on the Ohio Turnpike and Infrastructure Commission. In 2017, he was named to the Campaign for America’s Energy Ohio Steering Committee, as well as a partner in an Ohio Chamber of Commerce Research Foundation project that resulted in the report, “Ohio BOLD: A Blueprint for Accelerating the Innovation Economy.”

Governor James A. Rhodes formed the Association of Ohio Commodores in 1966 for the purpose of assisting the state in advancement in all areas contributing to the growth and development of the state and greater prosperity of its citizens. The Association was incorporated under the laws of the State of Ohio in 1971 as a non-profit organization, and now its esteemed members are primarily involved with supporting the Office of the Governor and Lt. Governor.

The Association is a non-partisan organization that currently boasts a diverse and dedicated membership of more than 500 men and women. Members include government officials; distinguished university presidents and administrators; banking and legal professionals; leaders of trade organizations; chambers and economic development organizations; and senior management executives of large, medium and small manufacturers from across Ohio in a variety of industries.
