The Leawood Chamber of Commerce has announced former Shawnee city councilmember Stephanie Meyer as its next president and chief executive officer.
Meyer’s background: Meyer previously worked as the community engagement and public finance leader at the DLR Group architecture firm, where she helped K-12 school district map out bond measures before undergoing renovations.
- Before accepting her new role, Meyer also served as a member of the Shawnee City Council for more than six years — three of which included serving as council president.
- “I love the hybrid of working in the private sector but working for public organizations,” she said. “It’s been a really fun few years for me.”
Shaping the role: Meyer said when she found out the Leawood Chamber was seeking a new president, she thought it would be a good way to combine the different sectors of professional experience she has had in the last 20 years.
