Progressive Builds on Commitment to Greater Cleveland, Announces Major Expansion 

It was recently announced Progressive Insurance, the nation’s fourth largest auto insurer and a leading seller of other insurance products, will be expanding its operations in Greater Cleveland.  The expansion will bring 900 new jobs and retain nearly 10,000 more in Ohio.

The Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP), worked closely with Progressive and collaborated with economic development partners Team NEO, Jobs Ohio and the City of Highland Heights on the business expansion project. The GCP Business Development Team served as lead on the effort and engaged multiple GCP program staff in the process. This included both the GCP Government Advocacy program staff as well as direct support from Joe Roman, GCP President and CEO. 

“This latest investment by Progressive demonstrates the company’s continued confidence in Greater Cleveland’s business environment,” stated Roman. “GCP is committed to Progressive’s long-term success and growth in our region. We look forward to building upon this opportunity and supporting the company for decades to come.”

“As we continue to grow, and in order to accommodate our increased business needs, we’re pleased to be adding jobs in Ohio,” said Kevin McGrath, Progressive’s Director of Real Estate Development.  “We appreciate the work, support and leadership GCP and all the economic development partners provided in order to secure the job creation tax credit package. We’re thankful for GCP in helping us navigate through the process to obtain this significant expansion in Greater Cleveland.” 

Progressive has called Greater Cleveland home for more than 80 years. The company’s continued success is of the utmost importance to GCP and all our partners. GCP will continue to support the expansion project activities and all of Progressive’s business needs. 

GCP is committed to retaining, advancing the growth of, and creating new opportunities for all our local businesses to increase the economic wealth and vitality of Greater Cleveland.
