Enquirer names Chamber President to 16 of 2016
The Cincinnati Enquirer Editorial board named Jill P. Meyer, president & CEO of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, as one of 16 of 2016; "the people who will shape our new year."
According to the authors, the editorial, "highlights those in our community who are making a significant impact in diverse areas, including business, nonprofits, education, politics and sports. The editorial board selected this group from among many Greater Cincinnati leaders because of the critical roles they will play this year."
The editorial reads, "Meyer, 44, of North Avondale, assumed leadership of the chamber in August – the first member of Generation X in the role.
Before that, Meyer spent two decades as an attorney for Frost Brown Todd, in recent years leading much of the firm’s civic work as member in charge. She was also a chamber board member.
'So many things are coming together and so many people in our region are taking ownership of our future in a way that is game-changing,' Meyer said. 'I’m honored to have the opportunity to help connect all those dots.'
She will be in the limelight in 2016 as the chamber seeks to ramp up Greater Cincinnati’s success in partnership with other local and state agencies and governments.
'We will put the new conversation that’s been started about the Cincinnati region on full throttle – making it a loud one to continue expanding our talent base and provide the resources our fantastic businesses in this region need to thrive.'
That conversation includes the arts, and Meyer and her husband, concert pianist Awadagin Pratt, are leading the 2016 ArtsWave campaign, the nation’s largest community campaign for the arts."
