John Barrett Named 2024 Great Living Cincinnatian

Western & Southern Financial Group •
John F. Barrett

Chairman, President and Chief Executive Office John F. Barrett was named a 2024 Great Living Cincinnatian by the Cincinnati Regional Chamber.

John Barrett joins a prestigious group of 170 awardees, including his father, Dr. Charles Barrett, former chairman, president and CEO, and Herbert R. Brown, former member of the board of directors and former senior vice president.

“I remember my dad said, ‘Never take score of your success until at least 70 years of age, because you’ve got to keep going,’” said Barrett. “My own feeling is, I’ve still got a lot to do. I’m just hitting my prime. I’ve been blessed with the ability to have vision and some of the stuff we hope to do in the next five years is underway right now. We have a great vision. There is still much to be done and I just want to see if we can pull it off.”

Great Living Cincinnatians are recognized for service to the community; business and civic attainment on a local, state, national or international level; leadership; awareness of the needs of others; and distinctive accomplishments that have brought favorable attention to their community, institution, or organization.
