ABOUT THE RBC: In 2000, the Regional Business Council was launched with 50 business executives representing some of the St. Louis region’s largest companies. In recent years, the St. Louis region’s business community has seen an increase in highly successful companies that employ a large percentage of the region’s workforce. Thus, this coalition is essential to enhancing the well-being and vitality of the region. These companies, generous with their time and resources, include civic and philanthropic involvement as priorities within their companies. Brought together for the first time, these businesses can now leverage their corporate involvement and investment. The collective effort of RBC members is dramatically expanding the breadth and depth of involvement and investment in the community. Realizing that it cannot lend its support to every worthy cause, the RBC is committed to putting its considerable talent, resources and determination behind business, civic and philanthropic priorities where RBC members can make a substantive contribution. Today the RBC is composed of 100 CEOs representing some of the region’s largest employers. These companies have a tremendous impact on the economic health of the region, employing over 120,000 people and generating over $65 billion in revenue annually. Most RBC companies are headquartered in the region and all have a vested interest in the development of the region’s 16 counties.


RBC’s MISSION & VISION:  To unite and engage members to act on high-impact business, civic and philanthropic affairs for the betterment of the St. Louis region. To engage a broad base of regional business leaders representing some of the region’s largest employers to orchestrate a unique transformation of the St. Louis business, civic and philanthropic community.
