Jimmy Finnegan

POSITION: Civic Engagement Events Coordinator

Background:

I love to travel, but I’m proud to claim Cincinnati as my home town. I’m an Industrial Designer at Easy Way Products. I have degrees in Industrial Design and Creative Writing. I’ve done a variety of volunteer work with Clifton Community Cleanup, mission trips to Appalachia, Back to School, and the Civic Engagement Committee.

Why I got involved with GBC:

One of the benefits that Cincinnati has over huge cities, like New York, is that you can easily get involved to make a huge impact. You can really see the city growing and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.

Why others should get involved:

To participate in the Cincinnati Renaissance. It’s also a great way to meet people, learn about the city and yourself, and grow as a leader (you get to work above your pay grade).

What makes GBC unique:

Their willingness to adapt and grow. They encourage you to be creative and push the boundaries. They give you the opportunity to to put in as much as you want, and get out as much as you want.

First GBC event:

Back to School.

Favorite GBC event:

What’s Feeding Cincinnati. It was an event that brought together organizations from around the city dedicated to local food and feeding the needy. It was a great space, there were poignant speakers and so much enthusiasm at every booth. It was educational and inspirational.

What excites me about 2018:

The opportunity to take the Civic Engagement Committee to a new level, get more people involved and make a bigger impact on the city.

Fun Fact:

I build squirrel obstacle courses.
