Governor Appoints Todd to Executive Order

July 2, 2018

Benesch is pleased to announce that Jonathan Todd, an attorney in the firm’s Transportation & Logistics Practice Group, was recently appointed by Governor John Kasich to the Executive Order of the Ohio Commodores.

The Executive Order was established by Governor Rhodes in 1966 to honor the Ohio business leaders who accompanied him on the State’s first international trade mission. The name “Commodores” refers to Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry who was the hero of the Battle of Lake Erie in 1813. Today the non-profit non-partisan organization is primarily tasked with supporting the Office of Governor and Lieutenant Governor in efforts to advance Ohio’s economy. Appointment is considered Ohio’s “most distinguished honor” and is granted to citizens in recognition of business acumen, accomplishments, and leadership.

Jonathan Todd practices law in the areas of supply chain management, international trade compliance, logistics, and transportation. He represents manufacturers, retailers, third party logistics providers, and carriers in transactional and regulatory matters. Those issues span the wide range of challenges and opportunities that arise when managing domestic and international supply chains and business operations. Jonathan may be reached at 216-363-4658 or
