oversees an effort to create 200,000 net new jobs for the region, add 150,000 young professionals to the work force and lift 15 counties' low-income residents out of poverty.
is excited about the job, the challenge and the mind-boggling complexities of the work.
"It was just too compelling to pass up," said Stagaman, who spent the last 25 years working at the University of Cincinnati before starting at Agenda 360 in July.
Now Stagaman is working at the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, which houses Agenda 360, to keep the vision of the thousands of volunteers and residents alive and moving.
Teams of corporate and community leaders are working on pieces of the plan, with Stagaman
coordinating all those efforts to maintain the momentum.
The work boils down to creating a foundation for long-term economic growth for the 15-county region to make the Tri-State a place where residents and businesses thrive.
Her passion for the vision makes her the perfect person for the Agenda 360 job, said Kathryn Merchant, CEO of the Greater Cincinnati Foundation, a member of Agenda 360's volunteer leadership council and a good friend of Stagaman's.
And while the recession has made the plan's goals seem all the more ambitious, Stagaman
said, it also gave Agenda 360

"But if anybody can keep us on that track, Mary
succeeds Myrita Craig in the position.
Craig was a vice president at the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber and guided the Agenda
360 planning process for nearly two years before being named its first executive director.
"I recommended that we pursue getting Mary
