Presenter: Jeff Fluhr
Title: Greater Wichita Partnership - Year End Update Recap
Brief Description: Thirteen years ago, a group of local leaders recruited Jeff Fluhr from Baton Rouge to Wichita to serve as the president of the Wichita Downtown Development Corporation, now Downtown Wichita.
Six years ago, Jeff’s role was expanded to assist in creating the Greater Wichita Partnership, an economic development organization focused on developing a unique, holistic approach to community growth from downtown to the ten-county region.
The Partnership is designed to align and focus efforts to make our region more competitive through three strategic priorities – Jobs, Talent and Quality of Place. The Partnership is built upon teamwork and the idea that, when everyone is advancing in the same direction, the region can create a powerful force to effect change. Jeff credits the numerous investors and community partners with creating that change.
Jeff is actively involved in the community, serving on various boards including the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce, Visit Wichita and previously on the Wichita Community Foundation and the International Downtown Association Executive Board. Jeff is also a member of the Rotary Club of Wichita.
Jeff is married to Melissa and they have two children, a son Matthew and a daughter Anna Joy.
