Regional Business council
concentrates the resources, expertise, and passion of St. Louis’ most respected business leaders on high-impact initiatives for the betterment of the St. Louis region.
Welcome from the RBC Chairman
The Regional Business Council is a unique organization. Representing 100 business leaders, member companies collectively employ more than 120,000 associates and generate more than $65 billion in annual revenue.
It is my great pleasure to serve as Chairman of the Regional Business Council. Individually, our members act as extraordinary leaders in their companies, their communities and in the region. However, it is only through coming together as a Council that our members’ voices are collectively amplified so that we can help the region achieve its highest potential.
The RBC is not a white paper organization, it’s an action-centered, collective force working to create a better, more livable region. As proud residents of the region, the Council’s committed members identify problems and seek hands-on, innovative solutions to meet the St. Louis region’s civic, business and philanthropic needs.
I know that there is important work to be done. As the RBC Chairman, I am committed to making sure our voices are heard and that the Council will continue to be a driving force for bettering the St. Louis region.
