2015: Mark Moyer
Mark Moyer was named the recipient of the 2015 Dick Johnson Civic Leadership Award. This award was established by the Muskingum County Community Foundation (MCCF) in 2000 at the suggestion of Bob Kessler to honor the impact of Dick Johnson, a successful businessman, philanthropist and civic leader. The Community Foundation presents the award annually to individuals who share the rare combined outstanding achievements as entrepreneurs, community leaders and philanthropists.
Moyer has spent the past 16 years serving on various boards, first at Good Samaritan Hospital and then for Genesis HealthCare System. He also has served as a trustee and president of the Bishop Rosecrans High School Foundation and trustee and board chairman of Bishop Rosecrans High School. He has served on the Genesis finance committee since 2004.
Moyer is the senior resident director at Merrill Lynch Wealth Management and senior partner of The Moyer Group in Zanesville. He noted that business and community service tend to push and pull each other. “It really is impossible to know where your business interests start and your community service ends and vice versa,” he said. “We are Merrill Lynch when we walk out the door.”
Moyer said the people he has met through his service and the lives he has helped change have been more than worth it. He encouraged everyone, no matter what their skill sets and talents are, to get out and help serve the community.
