At the same time, the company has to once again win its bid to manage plans for the Ohio Department of Medicaid, which is the company’s main business line.

Jeff Hoagland, CEO of the Dayton Development Coalition, said he’s impressed by the leadership team Preitauer has recruited from outside Ohio.
“He’s bringing in top talent and they’re not telecommuting. He wants them all to live in the Dayton region and they’re moving into town and they are getting engaged in the community. To me, I think that’s a great form of leadership he’s showing,” Hoagland said.
On Sunday, the Dayton Daily News will examine the future of CareSource, what Preitauer has done to lead the important Dayton company and what people in Dayton are saying about his leadership. The full CareSource story will publish online at DaytonDailyNews.com and in the newspaper.
