(LONDON)—Lt. Governor Jon Husted this morning opened the London Stock Exchange, surrounded by members of the Ohio delegation, which included economic development leaders from Southeast Ohio, Cleveland, the Stark County Minority Business Association, and JobsOhio.
The rare opportunity to open the exchange, formerly known as “ringing the bell,” was granted in recognition of Ohio’s close business ties to the United Kingdom and the expansion of the state’s relationship with the London Stock Exchange Group’s ELITE program. Lt. Governor Husted announced yesterday that LSEG ELITE will house their first-ever headquarters in the Americas in Cleveland, Ohio.
