Ohio Valley Goodwill Announces Retirement of Past Board Chairman, Dennis J. Barron

Ohio Valley Goodwill was pleased to honor Mr. Dennis J. Barron at its March Board of Directors meeting on the occasion of his formal retirement from the Board after more than fifty years of dedication and service. Mr. Barron, a retired partner with Frost BrownTodd, LLC has served as a trustee and secretary for Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries board of directors since 1965. He also served as President of the board from 1992-2001. As Chairman for the Volunteer Lawyers for the Poor Foundation of the Cincinnati Bar Association, Mr. Barron attained a reputation for his commitment and compassion for those individuals in need of a helping hand. In his personal life, Mr. Barron has volunteered his time acting as past Chairman of the Finance committee for Christ the King Church as well as a member of the Rotary Club and Cincinnati Citizens Police Association.

During the more than fifty years that Mr. Barron has served as a member of Ohio Valley Goodwill’s board of directors, the organization has grown from $1.6 million to $41 million in revenues. Earning recognition by the Cincinnati Bar Association in 2004 and in 2014 from Smart Business Magazine as Non-Profit Board Executive of the Year, Mr. Barron has earned a reputation of distinction for his philanthropic dedication over the past fifty years. One of the remarkable achievements of Mr. Barron’s tenure with the board is that an excess of 50,000 men and women with disabilities and our nation’s veterans have been served during his tenure. Ohio Valley Goodwill expresses its most sincere gratitude to Mr. Dennis Barron for his years of service and congratulates him on his well-deserved retirement.
