CINCINNATI -- Former Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory has a new gig.

Pittsburgh-based Chester Group, Inc. announced the hiring of Mallory Monday as Senior Vice President and National Director of Community and Economic Development for North America.

Chester Group is the parent company for Chester Engineers, an engineering services firm that provides energy, water and wastewater solutions to public and industrial clients across the United States and internationally.

Mallory's spokesman Jason Barron said Mallory's new job will not affect his residence. He will continue to live in Cincinnati.

"I am pleased that Mark will be joining our team because he has shown himself to be an extraordinary leader throughout his career and has a proven track record with establishing solid relationships,” Chester Group President and CEO Robert O. Agbede said. “He has the knowledge and vision to help grow our company.”

In January 2014, Chester Group launched three company divisions: Chester Engineers, Chester LNG and Chester International. Mallory’s position is new, and Agbede said his job will focus on expanding market share in the company’s current areas of operations and creating new business across North America.

“This is a great opportunity to be a part of a century old, world class, global organization where I can utilize my expertise in creating strategic alliances to support the company’s plans for growth,” Mallory said. “I have spent the last eight years working to revitalize Cincinnati, and now I want to use my experience to help mayors and other elected officials revitalize communities throughout North America.” 

Mallory officially joined the firm on Jan. 13 and has already started his duties.
