John L. Pogue

John has practiced law since 1969 and serves clients primarily on commercial law and estate planning matters. His legal counsel was instrumental in the 2006 transformation of the Raymond John Wean Foundation from a traditional family-managed foundation to a community asset where the majority of the board members are nonfamily. The foundation now invests more than $2 million annually in Mahoning Valley social services and neighborhood revitalization initiatives.

John is a trustee of the Youngstown State University Foundation and former trustee of the university. He has also served as board president or chairman of the Tech Belt Energy Innovation Corp., Youngstown Warren Regional Chamber of Commerce, Warren Trumbull Community Improvement Corp. and Warren City Schools Foundation.
