KJK Managing Partner Jon Pinney Named to Crain’s Power 150 List

January 21, 2021

Crain's Power 150KJK is proud to announce that Managing Partner Jon Pinney has been named to the Crain’s Cleveland “Power 150” list. The prestigious list recognizes CEOs, entrepreneurs, politicians, philanthropists and others who lead some of Northeast Ohio’s most influential organizations . The 2020 “Power 150” list represents an updated version of the 2014 “Power 150” and the 2017 “Who’s Who in Northeast Ohio” lists. Pinney was previously included in the 2017 version.

As KJK’s Managing Partner, Jon leads the firm’s experienced team of attorneys and staff in serving a wide array of clients including privately held businesses, entrepreneurs, non-profit organizations and high net-worth families. A committed civic leader, Jon has worked on several major public-private projects. He spent ten years attempting to secure a national political convention and worked tirelessly on the prior unsuccessful bids in 2008 and 2012. In 2014, he authored the winning 345-page bid to ultimately host the 2016 Republican National Convention and served as the General Counsel, Secretary and Treasurer for the Host Committee. That civic spirit extends into his numerous board leadership roles and relentless drive to move Northeast Ohio forward.

According to Crain’s, there were no specific criteria used in selecting those on the “Power 150,” list, nor were they chosen through a nomination process. Rather, the editorial staff collectively gathered names, taking into consideration each person’s role in Northeast Ohio and that of their organization.
