Sean Comer Joins the Cincinnati Chamber as Vice President of the Leadership Center

The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber announced today that Sean Comer will be the Chamber’s Leadership Center Vice President, effective May 2.

In addition to overseeing the Leadership Center at the Cincinnati Chamber, Comer will be responsible for the renowned Leadership Cincinnati program, which is now accepting applications for Class 46. Comer is only the 6th person to lead the program for Cincinnati’s top leaders, and he succeeds Amy Thompson, who became the CEO of the Cincinnati Youth Collaborative in January. Comer will lead the Leadership Center team that delivers programs including C-Change, Cincy Next, WE Lead, WE Ascend, Cincy LEAD, Leadership Roundtables, and more.

“Sean is the rare individual who sees his personal mission as helping others find success in leadership roles,” said Jill Meyer, President & CEO of the Cincinnati Chamber. “Throughout this process, he talked about a vision for ‘developing effective and reflective citizens’ through the Chamber’s Leadership Center. We couldn’t be more excited for him to join the team.”

At Xavier University, Comer has taught hundreds of honors students as a Professor in the Philosophy, Politics, and the Public (PPP) program. This program develops students into engaged citizen leaders, working outside the classroom to affect both systemic and policy change. Comer also led Beyond Civility, the well-known program that took steps to improve civility in government and civic environments. He has also served in a leadership role at Xavier University, managing government relations.

“The Chamber’s Leadership Center, and in particular Leadership Cincinnati, serves a critical role in strengthening the civic fabric of our community,” said Comer. “These programs, through the people who participate in them, change our region for the better. I can’t wait to help steer this work forward and support the development of our region’s business and community leaders.”

Leadership Cincinnati applications are open now for Class 46, which begins in September. Applications are due by May 16 and can be found at cincinnatichamber.com/leadershipcincinnati.

“What impressed me most about Sean was his authentic and humble approach to addressing this community’s most difficult and urgent challenges,” said Mel Gravely, Chairman of Triversity Construction, author of “Dear White Friend,” former Chamber Board Chair, and graduate of Leadership Cincinnati Class 19. “He understands that we need to challenge ourselves and confront the status quo in order to improve our region. The next generation of Leadership Cincinnati participants will be in very good hands with Sean Comer at the helm of the program.”
