FCBDD names Dot Yeager Superintendent/CEO

Dot Yeager, current Chief Business Officer, will be the next Superintendent/CEO for the Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities starting Jan. 1, 2024.

Yeager succeeds Jed Morison, who is retiring at the end of December after a 54-year career in public service. Yeager has worked alongside Morison for the past 21 years.

Board members unanimously approved her appointment during the agency’s Nov. 16 meeting. “Dot’s background and previous work with the board will allow her to hit the ground running as we continue to support over 12,000 children and adults who have developmental disabilities in our county,” Board President Michael Underwood said. “After an extensive search and interview process, we know Dot is the right person for the job.”

Yeager has a master’s in business administration and maintains superintendent certification from the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities. She formerly worked in the West Virginia governor’s office and as an audit manager with Deloitte.

Yeager has been behind much of the “good that has happened here,” Morison said. “I think this is an outstanding decision.”
