SusanSElliott_Arch Grants Board2Susan S. Elliott founded SSE in 1966 in the midst of a decade that was known for innovative technology, but not for women leaders in the field. Throughout the early stages of SSE’s growth, Susan used the technology expertise and programming knowledge she had gained working at IBM, beginning as a programmer in 1958, and nurtured her leading-edge business to be one of the largest Information Technology Solution Providers in the St. Louis area.  Susan holds an AB degree from Smith College. Now Chairman of SSE, she has served as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.  She, also, has served on the boards of Ameren, Angelica, Webster University, Regional Business Council (RBC) of which she was a charter member, St. Louis Regional Chamber & Growth Association (RCGA), the St. Louis Zoological Foundation, and the Visiting Nurse Association (VNA), which she led as President.  She was an original commissioner on the Missouri Lottery Commission and currently serves on the board of the St. Louis Science Center and Arch Grants. Susan loves that St. Louis is a big “small town” with enormous opportunities and amenities for all, not to mention the fact that is has been home to many generations of Susan’s and her husband’s families.
