Pickerington man started career by cleaning Ohio Theatre... this is what he does there now


Chad Whittington took a job cleaning the Ohio Theatre while in college.

"I was going to Ohio State," he told WSYX/WTTE "and needed to pay the bills on my tuition."

During his shift with the maintenance crew, Chad would change light bulbs, polish the brass and vacuum the seats.

"It just started as a job, and it turned into a great love affair and a great place to work."

In his downtime, Chad would study his finance books. The executives at CAPA took notice.

When he graduated from OSU, he was offered a job in the finance department. That was 19 years ago, and Chad has been climbing the ladder ever since.

In August, Chad reached the top. He became the President and CEO.

"I’m honored and excited to have the opportunity to lead CAPA into the next chapter," he said in a news release.
