Nonprofit organization Main Street Medina, which leads the effort for preservation, economic sustainability, and continued evolution of Medina’s Historic District, hired Jeremy Levine to serve as its executive director.
During his leadership as a vice president of the International Exposition (I-X) Center, he directed the largest trade shows ever held in Ohio and successfully managed high-profile projects throughout the last two decades with considerable economic impact.
Levine co-launched and produced the Fabulous Food Show, the nation’s premier culinary celebration. Under his stewardship for 10 years, the show grew to become North America’s biggest consumer food and beverage event, welcoming more than 27,000 annual visitors from more than 25 states and parts of Canada.
He conceptualized, developed and installed the world’s first fully transitional theater/arena (2,500-7,000 capacity), complete with portable telescopic elevated seating and moveable walls. The scalable space provides an intimate world-class acoustical environment for theatrical performances inside the existing 2.2 million square foot convention center complex. Cleveland’s new state-of-the-art concert venue went live last fall on his watch.
As the executive director for Main Street Medina, Levine will continue to build upon the legacy of Ohio’s foremost Main Street America program.
“One of his primary tasks will be the implementation of MSM’s new strategic plan,” Main Street Medina Board Chair Carole Kowell said. “I can’t wait to see where Jeremy’s marketing skills and vision will take our already successful events, such as International Fest and Candlelight Walk. I have every confidence that under Jeremy’s strong leadership, our organization will only get better.”
