Barbara A. Bichelmeyer, Ph.D., executive vice chancellor and provost of UMKC, was named to the Kansas City Business Journal "Women Who Mean Business" class of 2019.

Bichelmeyer, a professor of management, is the university's chief academic officer and its highest-ranking woman leader. A Kansas City native, she joined UMKC in 2015.

A panel of six judges selected the “Women Who Mean Business” class of 2019, the 20th year of the recognition. Each woman is a leader in her field, has made significant contributions to the business community and has given back to the community through philanthropy. 

Bichelmeyer and her co-honorees will be featured in a special supplement to the Aug. 23 weekly edition of the Kansas City Business Journal. The same day, the Women Who Mean Business class of 2019 will be celebrated at a luncheon at the Overland Park Convention Center.
