Former Oklahoma Treasurer Scott Meacham has been named president and CEO of i2E Inc.

Meacham will be the fourth chief executive in the 14-year history of the nonprofit corporation that serves the state's startup companies.

He is replacing Tom Walker, who resigned from the post at the end of July to accept a similar position with TechColumbus in Ohio.

Meacham, who has been on i2E's board since 2010, said he was drawn to the position because of the company's leading role in building the state's knowledge-based economy.

“My position on the i2E board of directors provided an insider's view to witness the innovative ways this organization has worked to help build new companies that create jobs and wealth for the state,” said Meacham, a director with the Crowe & Dunlevy law firm in Oklahoma City.

i2E provides venture advisory services, access to more than $25 million in capital and entrepreneurial development through its Fellows program and management of the Donald W. Reynolds Governor's Cup, a statewide collegiate business plan competition.

Meacham was selected unanimously as i2E's next chief executive after a nationwide search by its board, said Oklahoma State University-Tulsa and Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences President Howard Barnett Jr., who is the board's chairman-elect.

“We considered applicants from across the nation, but it soon became apparent that Scott Meacham possessed all the qualities we sought in a person to lead this organization into the future,” Barnett said. “He brings financial expertise to the role from deep experience as a former banker and state treasurer, as well as legal and business savvy from his current position as a practicing attorney with one of the state's largest law firms.”
