Meyer Capital Management’s Melissa Donovan Named to 2009 Class of Forty Under 40 Leaders

MCM’s Melissa Donovan was recently named a winner of the Cincinnati Business Courier’s prestigious Forty Under 40 award. This annual competition spotlights an impressive group of young, professional & community leaders who haven’t yet reached the age of 40. In its 13th year, the 2009 class saw 470 nominations of which only 40 were selected!

We are understandably proud of Melissa and her work on behalf of MCM clients. Her years of experience and professional education give her a depth of expertise uncommon among her peers. Under her leadership, the Company won the Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics sponsored by the Better Business Bureau, was a finalist for the Small Business Excellence Award presented by the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber of Commerce, and in 2008 & again in 2009, was named a FIVE STAR--Best in Client Satisfaction--Wealth Manager.

Since graduating with honors from Xavier University in 1994, Melissa progressed through positions of increasing responsibility during her 15-year career in the investment management field. In 1994, at JP Morgan Asset Management (formerly Pacholder Associates), she focused on the high yield bond market. Subsequently, she obtained several years of private client experience at Johnson Investment Counsel. Melissa joined Meyer Capital Management in 2001 where she currently serves as Managing Director & Chief Compliance Officer. She holds a B.S. degree from Xavier University and completed the Certified Financial Planner program at the College for Financial Planning, along with other executive education.

In addition to her career accomplishments, Melissa has made leadership-level contributions to several charities and non-profit organizations in the greater Cincinnati area. These contributions helped focus organizational strategy, increased membership, strengthened financial controls, and raised much needed funding.

In addition to her professional & civic responsibilities, Melissa is a wife & mother who lives with her husband and two children in Kings Mills, OH.
