Today, the global economy has changed and most U.S. cities that were manufacturing centers a century ago have had to transform into service economies. In recent years, Cleveland has made an effort to diversify its economy. However, the recession of the early 2000s has made it difficult for Cleveland businesses to gain much ground.

Cleveland, Ohio Transportation Executive Search City Snapshot:


Welcome to Cleveland, Ohio, “the Forest City,” the “Metropolis of the Western Reserve,” the “Rock ‘n’ Roll Capital of the World,” and the home of the world’s most devoted Lebron James haters.

In 1796 a team of land surveyors from the Connecticut Land Company laid out Connecticut’s Western Reserve into townships and a capital city. They named this capital city “Cleveland” after their leader, General Moses Cleveland. It wasn’t until 1814 that Cleveland’s first settler, Major Lorenzo Carter, moved to Cleveland and built his log cabin home on the banks of the Cuyahoga River. The area grew rapidly in the 1830s after the completion of the Ohio and Erie Canal. In 1836, Cleveland finally became incorporated as a city.

Cleveland sits on the south bank of Lake Erie, along the Cuyahoga River. Over the years, Cleveland’s geographic location helped the city flourish. When the Ohio and Erie Canal was completed in 1832, the Ohio River connected to lake Erie via the Cuyahoga River. By this time, Cleveland was also connected to the Atlantic Ocean via the Erie Canal. Cleveland soon became a commercial center and transportation hub for the Great Lakes region and the Midwest. The city also became a major manufacturing center in the early 20th century.

By the mid-1900s, Cleveland had reached its peak. In the 1960s, Cleveland’s economy slowed and many of its residents moved out to the suburbs. In 1978 Cleveland became the first major city to default on its federal loans since the Great Depression. The recession in the early 1980s severely hurt Cleveland. It closed many of its production centers and put many people out of work. In the last decade, Cleveland has worked hard to diversify its economy and improve its infrastructure by revitalizing its neighborhoods and investing in public education.

According to 2010 Census data, 396,815 people live in Cleveland. This number decreased by 17.1% since 2000, when Cleveland’s population was 478,403. In fact, every Census since 1960 shows a decreasing Cleveland population. Suburbanization and “white flight” attribute to Cleveland’s declining population in the 1950s and 60s. In recent decades however, Cleveland’s declining population can be attributed to its struggling economy. Between 1950 and 2010, Cleveland’s population dropped from 914,808 to 396,815. Between 2000 and 2010 alone the city’s population decreased by over 80,000.

Cleveland is not one of this country’s more educated cities. Out of the population of 25+ years olds, only 69% hold a high school degree, 11.4% a bachelor’s degree, and 3.8% a graduate or professional degree. Only about 35% of Cleveland’s population 15 years and older is married. 39% never married, 14% are divorced, 3% are separated and 9% are widowed. Also, about 58% of Clevelanders adhere to some kind of religious congregation. This is higher than the national average of 50%. Of these religious people, 60% are Catholic, 10% are Jewish, and 30% are part of some other religious group.
