Meet the Team
Jillian R. Harman
CEO, CFO, CMO, CIO
Jillian is a relative newcomer to Ohio. Born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, she spent 13 years in Reading, PA, before deciding to make a significant life change. Passionate about design and marketing, she developed the idea for a local business publication that blends the look of a glossy lifestyle magazine with local business content as way to give B2B companies a stronger platform to reach local decision makers. She leads all facets of the business, from administration and business development to editorial direction and content.
Jillian is also the owner of Hyperion Design & Publishing, which helps businesses with their marketing, design, communication, and technology needs. She has more than 25 years of experience in design, publishing, and marketing and brings a blend of creative and technical skills to every project.
Jillian is self-taught in graphic design, web development, and database development, among other things. She was a professional photographer for more than a decade and recently launched a photography division, Hyperion Portraits, focusing on business headshots. She’s also been an event organizer for black-tie fundraisers at a historic mansion.
She is currently a member of the Fairlawn Area Chamber and serves on its Membership Committee. She is also active with many other local business groups.
Jillian is a voracious news reader and enjoys keeping up with the latest technology, science, and health innovations. She also delights in watching crime dramas, Doctor Who, and British comedy.
Jillian enjoys riding her electric bike, Stella, on the local trails when the weather is warm and hitting the slopes when it’s not. And she always looks forward to a daily indulgence of dark chocolate, regardless of the weather.
