Pat Tiberi

President and CEO of Ohio Business Roundtable

Since January of 2018, former Congressman Pat Tiberi has served as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Ohio Business Roundtable.

Under Tiberi, the OBRT has grown in membership, is now more collaborative with like-minded business organizations and has refocused on its core mission of economic development. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Tiberi has worked closely with Governor Mike DeWine and Lt. Governor Jon Husted to ensure the voice of business is properly considered on key decisions that affect Ohio’s economic climate. Additionally, workforce development is a critical priority for OBRT members, and in 2019, Governor Mike DeWine appointed Tiberi Chairman of the Governor’s Executive Workforce Board, which is responsible for advising the Governor, Lt. Governor, and the Office of Workforce Transformation about emerging workforce needs, solutions, and best practices.

During his 17-year tenure in the U.S. House representing central Ohio, Tiberi earned a reputation as a principled, policy-focused legislator who routinely worked across party lines. Tiberi served as a senior member and chaired subcommittees on the House Ways and Means Committee, working on tax policy, health care, and trade policy—issues that impact our economy and job creators. In his final year in the House, Tiberi chaired the Joint Economic Committee, which is singularly focused on policies to create jobs and strengthen our economy.

Tiberi began his career in public service serving eight years as a member of the Ohio House of Representatives and worked with Governor George Voinovich, Speaker Jo Ann Davidson and the Ohio Business Roundtable to pass lawsuit reform, helping to improve an Ohio business climate suffering from an activist Ohio Supreme Court and rampant lawsuit abuse. Tiberi served in House leadership, as he rose to the position of House Majority Leader. The son of Italian immigrants, Tiberi has been a lifelong resident of central Ohio. He is a 1985 graduate of The Ohio State University and was a member of The Ohio State University Marching Band. In August of 2018, Tiberi was appointed to the Ohio Dominican University Board of Trustees. Prior to being elected to Congress, he worked as a realtor. Pat and his wife, Denice, are the proud parents of four daughters.
