INTERalliance of Greater Cincinnati Executive Director Transition

CINCINNATI, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 08/30/13 -- Mr. Doug Arthur, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the INTERalliance of Greater Cincinnati, has announced that he is leaving the organization to pursue his passion of expanding community engagement to other cities across the United States. "As one of the original founders of the INTERalliance in 2005, Doug has contributed countless hours and an inexhaustible passion for educating regional high school students about careers in technology," says Jim Scott, Chairman of the INTERalliance Board of Directors. "Doug, along with co-founders Procter & Gamble and the University of Cincinnati, had the original vision and has maintained the sustained commitment that has allowed the INTERalliance to become the influential organization it is today," states Scott.

The INTERalliance has helped over 2,500 area high school students learn about local careers in IT through its programs, including summer internships for high school students with Fortune 100 companies, a series of immersive technology-in-business summer camps hosted by area universities and businesses, and its flagship conference, TechOlympics Expo. The University of Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky University, and Miami University are its key college partners. 54 of the area's high schools are served by its programs, with 500 students reached each year.

Geoff Smith, former P&G IT Executive, an INTERalliance Board Director since its inception, and Co-Chair of the Cincinnati CIO Roundtable, says the future is bright. "We have the greatest level of support from our area's businesses and universities that we have ever had. Our partners are helping us make an impact in educating young people about the limitless opportunities that exist in IT careers right here in Cincinnati," says Smith. Member companies of the INTERalliance include The Kroger Co., Procter & Gamble, Great American Insurance, Cincinnati Bell Technology Services, GE Aviation, Toyota Motor Engineering, Vora Industries, Fifth Third Bank, and Ethicon Endo-Surgery, among many others.

"On behalf of the INTERalliance Board of Directors, its student and teacher members, and all of our business sponsors, I would like to sincerely thank Mr. Doug Arthur for his achievements and immeasurable contributions to students throughout the Cincinnati area," says Scott. "We wish him the best in his new endeavors."

The Board of Directors has asked Mr. Scott to serve as Interim Executive Director as the Board begins a search for a permanent Executive Director. Mr. Scott will remain Board Chair through the transition period while Mr. Arthur assumes his new role as Managing Director of Community Engagement at TiER1 Performance Solutions, where he will be responsible for working with communities across the country to help them establish strong business-to-education civic infrastructures.

About the INTERalliance of Greater Cincinnati: The mission of the INTERalliance is to establish the Greater Cincinnati Region as a model of cooperation between business and educators -- working together to identify, nurture, train, employ, and retain the area's best IT talent.
