“I’m really excited to have Greg on our team,” said Tom Eigel, Clermont County Administrator. “He brings more than 20 years of experience with Sycamore Township, including six as Administrator. Clermont County will benefit from his extensive background in economic development and public administration.”
For seven years, Bickford served as Executive Director of the Sycamore Township Community Improvement Corporation, which worked to promote economic, commercial and civic development.
Bickford’s first priority is to ensure the Economic Development Department, including Building Inspection, continues to provide excellent customer service and creates a vision for the future.
“Economic development and public administration have been my passion for the past 25 years,” Bickford said. “I started out as a wide eyed graduate from the University of Cincinnati with Butler County in the Planning Department and grew to understand and appreciate the importance of public administration.”
Bickford received a Bachelor of Science in Urban Planning and Design from the University of Cincinnati. He is involved in several professional associations, including the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP).
He added: “I believe in a hands on, personal, and proactive approach. Building relationships is very important and will always pay dividends in the long run. I am confident that with my skills, knowledge and past history of success, we can continue to keep moving Clermont County forward.”
