Jill P. Meyer, member-in-charge of the Frost Brown Todd law firm’s Cincinnati office, has been named the new president and CEO of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber’s board of directors said Meyer, a member of the Chamber board of directions since 2011, will take over for interim president Pete Strange, the chair emeritus of Messer Co.
Meyer has been with Frost Brown Todd’s Cincinnati office – the largest of its 10 offices – since 1996. She heads the firm’s business development, civil and charitable initiatives. According to a Chamber news release, Meyer “maintains a full legal practice, advising on and litigating media, advertising and business issues and disputes, while overseeing the firm’s advertising law practice.”
“We are elated with Jill’s acceptance of this pivotal leadership role for our region,’’ Julia Poston, the Chamber’s 2015 Board of Directors chair, said in the release. “Her business acumen, strong and diversified community commitment and Chamber board experience will serve the Chamber’s members exceedingly well as we collaborate to grow the competitiveness of our region.”
Meyer said the chamber “represents the largest network of businesses in our 15-county region and I’m honored to have this opportunity to harness their collective power to continue our region’s strong momentum.”
Meyer is a magna cum laude graduate of Mount St. Joseph University and the Salmon P. Chase College of Law. She currently sits on the boards of the Cincinnati Convention & Visitors Bureau, Downtown Cincinnati Inc., the YWCA, the Cincinnati Arts Association and the Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services Board.
The Chamber is one of the largest chambers in the nation, representing 4,000 businesses.
