McCloud returns to Ohio BWC as Administrator/CEO
She had been serving in the Ohio Department of Health
In early August, Governor Mike DeWine announced that Stephanie McCloud would step back into her role as the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation's (BWC) administrator/CEO after serving the Ohio Department of Health (ODH). He thanked McCloud for her leadership and service during the pandemic.
In January 2019, DeWine appointed McCloud as administrator/CEO of the BWC. She leads the largest state-run insurance system in the United States with a staff of 1,627 who serve 246,000 employers and manage more than 600,000 open claims.
In November 2020, McCloud went on to become the ODH's director. DeWine chose her for this role due to her knowledge of state government and management expertise, which were both needed during the pandemic. She continued as director for 10 months until her return to the BWC as administrator on August 16.
