    Event Description:
    Featuring speaker - Linda Barita, Director of Strategic Alliances for MAGNET (The Manufacturing & Advocacy Growth Network)

    MAGNET Background - Founded in 1984, MAGNET: The Manufacturing Advocacy and Growth Network is the arm of the State of Ohio Department of Development that is dedicated to helping manufacturers grow and compete in Northeast Ohio. As part of the Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), they also support, educate, and champion Northeast Ohio manufacturing with the goal of transforming the regional economy into a powerful, global player.

    Linda’s title is Director of Strategic Alliances. She is vital to MAGNET and is the base that all business filters through. Linda is as dynamic as she is smart and I promise after meeting her you’ll wish you were friends with her.

    Linda’s personality is unbeatable, and her experience is too. She worked for BP Oil for 13 years, followed by 5 years at GrafTech, finally ending up here at MAGNET for the past 12. That gives her over 32 years of industry experience ranging from positions in marketing, products trader, business development and more. 

    As mentioned before Linda is the Director of Strategic Alliances. Simply put, she is the liaison between all of our partners and the first contact into working with MAGNET. She is the gatekeeper of our skills and talent, helping manufacturers pair up with Growth Advisors and Engineers. Linda does more than bring people together, she’s involved in nearly every aspect of business at MAGNET. She gives tours, educates the community on MAGNET, and makes presentations around the 21 counties MAGNET supports.

    Linda is a graduate from Youngstown State University, is on the Board for the Cleveland Engineering Society, Chair of the Ohio Women in Manufacturing board, and also is the founder and Director of the Women Leaders of Economic Development group for NEO.
