Diane Brockmeier Receives Most Influential Business Women Award
Posted August 15, 2016 in News Category
Mid-America Transplant President and CEO Diane Brockmeier was among the honorees of the St. Louis Business Journal’s 2016 Most Influential Business Women award ceremony on Friday. A who’s who of St. Louis business women, the 25 recipients were acknowledged individually on stage with a biography and highlights of their accomplishments.
In the August 12th edition of the St. Louis Business Journal, each honoree was asked about the pair of shoes that best describes them and why. Diane, who was promoted to president and CEO on February 1, 2016 in her 29th year with the organization, selected a pair of brightly colored sandals. “I love color,” she told the newspaper, “and I definitely tend to look on the brighter side of life. I am truly inspired every day by life moments… college graduations, weddings and first days of school to name a few. At Mid-America Transplant, we’re working to make more of those moments possible through the generous act of organ and tissue donation.”
Diane is nationally recognized for her collaborative leadership efforts to establish key quality benchmarks and enhance organ and tissue donation recovery and quality. As president and CEO of Mid-America Transplant, Diane oversees strategic operations, including key partnerships with more than 120 hospitals and transplant centers located throughout Missouri, northeast Arkansas and southern Illinois. She has been with the organization for 30 years, first as a nurse and organ procurement coordinator and then rising through the ranks to oversee all organ procurement and clinical services as the chief operating officer before becoming president and CEO in February 2016.
“It is readily apparent to the Board of Directors that Diane brings a high level of expertise to the position of president,” said Robert Bezanson, chairman of the Mid-America Transplant Board of Directors. “We know she will ensure the organization will continue to succeed in its mission and ongoing innovation. Perhaps more importantly she has an unwavering compassion for the families and communities Mid-America Transplant serves and we are certain she will bring that kindness with her as she leads the organization into the future.”
