Zimmer Radio Holds Second CEO Roundtable in Springfield

A total of 13 CEO’s and local government leaders took part in Thursday’s second CEO Roundtable at KWTO and the Zimmer Radio Group in Springfield.

From crime and the role drugs, poverty and guns play in Springfield’s record number of 23 homicides in 2020, to economic and workforce development and the challengers employers face in hiring qualified and available employees, to how our city’s higher education institutions work together with the business community, to “placemaking” efforts in making our community a better place to live, our panelists shared their expertise and their concerns.

You can expect to hear and read more on these topics in the coming months on KWTO News, Wake up Springfield and Springfield’s Happy Hour shows, and on Watching the Ozarks with Bonnie Bell.

Our thanks to the following CEO’s for taking time out of their day to collaborate with fellow leaders:

Matt Morrow—Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce

Bill Dunton—Abacus CPA’s

Dee Wampler—Wampler & Passanise

Michael Eaton—Missouri Association of Manufacturers
