About Frank Bertone…

November 8, 2017: 
I want to express my heartfelt thanks to the voters of Powell for re-electing me to the City Council. I am honored and humbled that you have placed your trust in me.
Since 2003, my family and I are proud to call Powell our home. We chose to raise our family here because of the small-town atmosphere. I feel the role of City Council member should be one of listening to what the needs of the community are and then actively address those needs.  My goal is to protect the quality of life we enjoy in Powell and to make certain that it will continue for future generations.
Our daughters Ava, Francesca and Giana all attend Olentangy Schools and are very active with both school and neighborhood athletic teams.
As a longtime resident of Powell with a solid understanding of our past, present and future, I bring to the conversation a diverse knowledge of the issues and opportunities before us. I am a solutions oriented leader.
I strive to work collaboratively with my peers to resolve key issues and define strategic goals for our community. It is key for me to keep the residents wants and needs top of mind when approaching projects or key decisions.
I work as a Trust Officer / Product Consultant, for the Nationwide Trust Company.  My responsibilities include risk management and business development activities for Private Sector Retirement Plans as related to Nationwide Trust Company. I have been with Nationwide since 1993, holding a wide array of roles including annuity and group retirement plans product development, project management and sales. I am an Accredited Investment Fiduciary, AIF® and a graduate of The Ohio State University.
I bring necessary public policy, financial acumen, accountability and solutions oriented leadership experience to Powell City Council. I advocate for service and ethics to our community.
