The president and CEO of the St. Louis Regional Chamber & Growth Association will step down by the end of this year.
Dick Fleming made the announcement Thursday.
He will continue to lead the RCGA until the board chooses his successor.
Fleming says the St. Louis region works together much better than it did when he first joined the RCGA back in 1994.
“It was a very fragmented everyone competing with everyone else on national economic development opportunities, and now the national community sees us as one place, and we've been successful,” Fleming said.
Fleming says he's not certain what he'll do next, but he says it's time for the next chapter of his career.
