Women in the corner office

Over the last couple weeks, I’ve had the honor of profiling two women with prominent and critical leadership roles in Memphis: Beverly Robertson and Meri Armour. Beverly was recently named as interim CEO of the Greater Memphis Chamber, where she applies her background as an educator, corporate executive, entrepreneur, and nonprofit director to advocate for Memphis’ economic development. Meri is ending her lauded tenure as president of Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital this year after helping the hospital evolve into one of the most respected children’s healthcare facilities in the country. Both have played a direct role in creating a brighter future for Memphis, and I’m so grateful to have had the chance to soak in some of their wisdom.
