Meacham will lead an organization that has advised 550 companies, an impressive portfolio that has attracted more than $770 million of funding to Oklahoma including $489 million from private investment.
“I've served with Scott on the i2E board of directors for the past two years, so I know what he brings to the company as far as knowledge of its mission and its programs,” said Greater Oklahoma City Chamber President Roy Williams, who heads i2E's board. “I'm excited that we have a man of such quality and expertise to take the reins of the organization and move it forward.”
Meacham, who starts his new job on Jan. 1, said his first priority will be to build i2E's visibility and expand the scope of its services.
“I'm looking forward to helping i2E expand its role as one of the state's most valuable resources for researchers and entrepreneurs who are striving to build successful businesses,” Meacham said. “I'm ready to go to work.”
