Rep. Jim Renacci (OH-16) kicked off an ambitious ‘Route 71 Tour’ by making stops in Fairview Park, North Olmsted, and Westlake on Monday, April 21.
The Route 71 Tour consists of a series of stops at businesses along 71 throughout the week.
Rep. Renacci toured Hyland, creator of OnBase in Westlake. He also made stops at Reserves Network in Fairview Park, a family-owned and operated company that is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, as well as Moen, North Olmsted’s largest employer.
At each stop, Rep. Renacci met with employees and leadership to listen to their concerns and discuss how policy set forth in Washington affects their business.
Hyland of Westlake, noted the world-over for OnBase, its leading Enterprise Content Management software, greeted the Congressman graciously.
Ed McQuiston, Vice President of Global Sales for Hyland, said the visit was a solid opportunity to share a powerful local success story.
“Hyland is one of really nice success stories of Northeast Ohio,” said McQuiston. “I started here in 2001, and I was employee number 170, we stand at 1700 employees today. Hyland is a story of sustained growth without deviating from our values. We are good to our customers and loyal to our employees.”
That approach has elevated Hyland to international status in the business world. Also on hand to greet the Congressman were John Sobolewski, Executive Director West Shore Chamber of Commerce, State Rep. Nan Baker, Westlake Mayor Dennis Clough and Mark Boepple of MySocialNetworkingCoach.com
