Dana “Buck” Rinehart*
Buck Rinehart specialized in consulting with major businesses in Ohio to provide practical advice and assistance in government, community and public relations. His strategic thinking skills enabled clients to gain maximum results when dealing with all levels of government.
Mr. Rinehart’s experience as the former two-term mayor of the City of Columbus and the former two-term treasurer of Franklin County, Ohio, gave clients the benefit of his extensive knowledge and understanding of Central Ohio government and the area’s political climate. Under his mayoral leadership, Columbus enjoyed a government infrastructure investment of more than $600 million, the creation of 117,000 jobs and recognition as one of the best cities for business in the United States.
The City of Columbus Public Utilities Complex was recently dedicated to honor Buck for his service as the city’s 50th Mayor. Current Mayor Michael Coleman performed the dedication.
Mr. Rinehart’s government and professional experience also included membership on President Reagan’s Board of Advisors on Private Sector Incentives, President Bush’s Advisory Board of the U.S. Export-Import Bank and the Board of Directors of the National League of Cities. He had more than 30 years of private practice experience, representing clients in government contracting, real estate transactions, government financing, government regulation and political consulting.
