Cleveland, Ohio – Skoda Minotti, a national business advisory firm, is pleased to announce that Jonathan J. Shoop, CPA, has been selected as a member of the Cleveland Bridge Builders (CBB) Class of 2019.


CBB is a launch pad for mid-career professionals that prepares them for a greater role in the community by fostering teamwork, growth and learning. The program is comprised of five full-day sessions and a two-day opening retreat. Participants are challenged to move outside their comfort zones; learn from their classmates; build relationships with individuals from a diverse range of experiences, backgrounds and interests; and identify meaningful ways to engage civically.


Approximately 60 leaders are selected for each class through a highly competitive selection process. Applicants must:

  • Demonstrate a commitment to the community and strong leadership, collaboration and problem-solving skills.
  • Have the full support of their employer for the time commitment to the program.
  • Provide two recommendations focused on professional and civic accomplishments.


A volunteer alumni panel reviews all submissions and scores applicants on problem-solving skills, commitment to community, demonstrated leadership abilities and interpersonal skills.

“I am honored to be selected as part of this renowned program,” said Shoop. “I’m very eager to begin participating in Bridge Builders, forging relationships with fellow members of the 2019 class and understanding ways to leverage our collaborative civic leadership to positively impact our community.”


Shoop is a partner with Skoda Minotti and leads the firm’s Manufacturing and Distribution Group. His experience includes more than 15 years in public accounting, serving clients in the Greater Cleveland area, and working at a multinational manufacturer. He joined Skoda Minotti in 2012.
