New Chairs Named for Covington Business Council, Urban Partnership

New chairmen have been named for the Covington Business Council and the Urban Partnership, the organizations announced Monday.

Scott Guenther, managing partner at law firm Adams, Stepner, Woltermann, and Dusing, will take the reins at the Covington Business Council board and George Hagan, who recently sold Providence Pavilion and the former St. Elizabeth Hospital in Covington, will serve as chairman of the Urban Partnership.

“Both Guenther and Hagan will provide great leadership for the organizations in the coming year," said Pat Frew, who serves as executive director of both organizations, in a news release.  
 
“Scott’s steady influence and keen mind are a great combination in providing leadership and direction for the Council,” Frew said. “It is no coincidence that the CBC is undergoing continued strong growth as we ended 2014 and begin 2015. In the last two months alone, we have attracted 12 new members, reaching the 225 total membership mark after staying stationary the past year hovering around the 205 mark.
 
“On the other hand, George Hagan, who actually took the leadership reins of the Partnership’s board in the middle of 2014, has already provided a strong vision and plan for what our business organizations can do to provide stronger leadership for Covington. His leadership along with the support of our boards have built a stronger foundation of political and vocal support for business in the City."
