Amy Reagle Meyers

Amy Reagle Meyers


Amy Meyers became president of SCM Associates in 2018 upon the passing of her husband and company founder, Stephen Meyers. Although new to running SCM, she got her start in politics working for the Massachusetts Republican State Committee. She later worked as a Legislative Aide at the Massachusetts Statehouse and on a couple of statewide campaigns.
Stepping away from politics, she worked as a Consultant for Russell Reynolds Associates, Inc., a leading executive search firm, before starting her own search practice focused on recruiting leadership for non-profits. She has also worked on governance and leadership development projects for a leading firm of strategic advisors advancing culture and education.
Civic-minded and passionate about the causes near to her, Amy is a past President of the Junior League of Boston and the Monadnock Garden Club. She served on the Board of the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests and on the Monadnock Region Board of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. Currently she serves on the Board of her church and on her town’s Planning Board.
Amy’s greatest accomplishment is her two kind and talented adult children. She loves living in the country with her retired horses and a menagerie of rescue animals including dogs, cats, donkeys, goats, and more chickens than she should have.
She is very grateful for SCM’s amazing team of employees and contractors and is looking forward to working with them to taking the company to new heights and hopes to add many great female Republican candidates and leaders to SCM’s already impressive client list.

Prior to joining SCM Associates, Lou graduated first in his class from Boston College Law School, practiced corporate law at one of the country’s top law firms, and had the privilege of spending seven years working for Mitt Romney in various capacities.
