He currently is managing another 12 projects that could result in $51 million of investment and 425 new jobs over the next 24 months. 

MacMillan’s additional responsibilities include populating the two-county available property list for JobsOhio, presenting more than 200 industrial and commercial properties and management of the xhamber’s economic impact analysis service. 

He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Youngstown State University, earning a B.A. in economics. Earlier this year, he earned the Ohio Certified Economic Development professional credential.

Tyger joined the chamber team Nov. 1 as executive coordinator.
