It's Time You Meet Our Leading Partners

We are fortunate to have several members who go above and beyond to ensure the success of the Cape Chamber - eight of which invest at the highest level as a Leading Partner. We're sharing some of the wonderful experiences we've had with these businesses, and we hope you will too!


Century Casino

"Our First Friday Coffee event is held at Century Casino's event center every month - with the exception of the few months we held virtual events due to the public health crisis. From the beginning the Casino's staff has been a partner in helping elevate the event to the premier networking opportunity in the region, regularly getting an attendance of approximately 300. Each month since starting at the Chamber, I have had the opportunity to work alongside them in the setup and implementation of the event and they are always willing to go above and beyond to make sure everything is set up to our wishes and specifications. Not only do they help produce top-notch events at their location, they are substantial advocates for our downtown region and businesses, stepping up in so many ways to help make other events a success!"

- Dana Brune, Cape Chamber Membership & Events Specialist


Drury Hotels

"Drury Hotels is a 45 year member and supporter of the Cape Chamber.  When we recently moved our Annual Dinner to the Drury Plaza Hotel Conference Center the transition was seamless.  Their entire team went above and beyond to ensure that our 800+ guests were provided with a professional and welcoming experience."

- Michele Litzelfelner, Cape Chamber Member Relationship Manager


Mayson Capital Partners

"Jeff Maurer with Mayson Capital Partners has really plugged in to the community and been very active in many ways. I've had the pleasure of working with Jeff on several economic development projects and he has an intelligent business mind and brings a lot to the table."

- John Mehner, Cape Chamber President & CEO


Montgomery Bank

"There isn't much in the community that Montgomery Bank isn't involved in; if anything.  The Montgomery Bank team is relationship driven....get to know your customers, know how they think, don't just pick up the phone and call....go see them face to face....let them know they matter.  This passion for connecting with people carries through in the importance Jim Limbaugh places upon Chamber involvement for his organization and team."

- Michele Litzelfelner, Cape Chamber Member Relationship Manager


Penzel Construction

"Penzel Construction has a more than 100 year history of leadership in the local construction industry. Phil and I have worked together on many projects and he and his team always bring innovative ideas and a can-do attitude to any deal"

- John Mehner, Cape Chamber President & CEO


rustmedia / Southeast Missourian

"I have had the pleasure of working with the rustmedia/Southeast Missourian team on several projects. The creativity their team brings to the table never fails to knock my socks off. From Shipyard to specialized publications, their crew works tirelessly to build strong, connected communities."

- Taylor Laws, Cape Chamber Marketing & Communications Specialist


Saint Francis Healthcare

"It is a real pleasure to work with the team at Saint Francis Healthcare System. They are a tremendous asset to the region and have been recognized nationally for their quality. Maryann has served on our board and our executive committee and brought great to the discussions."

- John Mehner, Cape Chamber President & CEO



"Ken Bateman and the SoutheastHealth team have made a huge difference in our community. Their work to partner to bring a psychiatric hospital facility to our area will have tremendous impact in the years to come. Year after year, they support our Chamber and our community."

- John Mehner, Cape Chamber President & CEO


Thank you, Leading Partners, for going above and beyond for our Chamber and our community!
