Meet the Show Me Strong Business Council


The Show Me Strong Business Council is a volunteer group of community leaders, comprised of two representatives from Nixa, two from Ozark, and two from the county at large.

Councilor names from left to right around the table - 
Nathan Rapp, Insight Design | Mark Jenkins, The Bank of Billings | Anna Evans, Ozark Chamber of Commerce | Ben Stone, DeWitt & Associates | Sarah Buxton, SMCC Staff | Andrea Sitzes, SMCC Staff | Mary Rajek, Missouri Department of Economic Development | Josh Kitchin, Edward Jones | Amanda Satterlee, The Realty Group | Chris Russell, Nixa Area Chamber of Commerce | Jackie Barger, Children's Smile Center

Our councilors are just as enthusiastic about the health of our business community as we are! As volunteers of Show Me Christian County, our councilors are here as a resource to you. They have gone through special, rigorous training to conduct business retention and expansion interviews with business owners just like you.

We want to know what keeps you up at night. What are the things we can do to make your life easier and your business run smoother? That's what the Strong Business Council is all about.
