Dick Fleming

The American Chamber of Commerce Executives earlier this month awarded Richard C. D. "Dick" Fleming with the 2014 John Parr Award, recognizing a lifetime of outstanding individual leadership in advancing regional stewardship of metropolitan areas. Over his career Fleming has led major public-private efforts in Atlanta, Denver and as president and CEO of the St. Louis Regional Chamber and Growth Association (RCGA). Twice during his tenure, RCGA was named by Site Selection as one of the 10 best economic development organizations in the nation.

"Why do I read Site Selection?"
Your magazine has been helpful to me. I look to the regional reports. This is work I don't do all the time. To get in the groove, and see what those who do it all the time are doing, it helps to get your head in the game.
