John Barrett and Maribeth Rahe

Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer John F. Barrett ranked within the top 10 in this year's Power 100, a list published annually by Cincy Magazine of the tristate's 100 most influential leaders.

Barrett has been named to the Power 100 list each year since the feature debuted 18 years ago. Maribeth Rahe, president and chief executive officer of Fort Washington Investment Advisors, the investment subsidiary of Western & Southern Financial Group and a long-time member of the list, was recognized again. 

In describing Barrett, Cincy Magazine noted his passion for Cincinnati and support for redevelopment in downtown as well as other areas including health care, education and the arts. 

Tom Williams, a member of the Western & Southern Financial Group board of directors, chief executive officer of North American Properties, Inc., and co-principal owner and vice chairman of the Cincinnati Reds, was also included among the top 10.

The magazine also introduced a new category featuring the region’s Rising Stars to shine a light on other top leaders making their mark on the city. Paul Silva, president of Eagle Realty Group, Western & Southern’s real estate capital provider and asset management company, was among the 295 professionals highlighted for their efforts to improve our region and communities.
