Cierra Clymer is the Director of International Business Development at REDI Cincinnati. Cierra's role focuses on increasing foreign direct investment in the Greater Cincinnati region through new attraction, expansion and retention efforts. In this role, Cierra is responsible for managing the international lead pipeline, building market-driven strategies, driving lead generation through contracts, companies and consultants. Cierra started at REDI Cincinnati as an intern and hired after graduation from Miami University to support the project management and business development teams as well as lead REDI’s site selection program. Prior to serving in her current capacity, Cierra served as a project manager with a specific focus on the organization’s international pipeline where she played an integral part in securing the new investment of the Italian manufacturer, Modula.

On behalf of REDI Cincinnati, Cierra serves on the Executive Committee for the Greater Cincinnati European American Chamber of Commerce and the Board of Directors of the Japan America Society. She is actively engaged with both organizations to increase membership and participation from the region’s international community as well work to attract new international investment. Cierra is a graduate of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber’s Cincy Next Class 6 – a leadership program for the region’s top young professionals and future leaders – and is a current participant in YWCA’s 2021 Rising Star Leadership Program – a leadership program for the region’s top women equity leaders. Moreover, Cierra received her Ohio Economic Development Certification and is recognized as a ‘best-in-class’ throughout the state.

Prior to REDI Cincinnati, Cierra studied at Miami University where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and International Studies with a focus in development and a minor in Spanish.

While completing her undergraduate, Cierra served as assistant director at the local chamber of commerce in her hometown of Wauseon, Ohio where she assisted in community development efforts and local business engagement.

Personally, Cierra gives her time to the community by serving on the Board of A Voice for the Innocent – a nonprofit dedicated to supporting survivors of sexual violence – and YWCA’s advocacy committee – a team dedicated to empowering women and eliminating racism in the Cincinnati region.  In her free time, she enjoys exploring Greater Cincinnati’s urban core, traveling to new places with her partner, Tony, and cuddling with her puppy, Dallas.
