Funke Frommeyer, a financial adviser at Waddell & Reed, currently serves as a member of the Northern Kentucky Chamber Board of Directors, Women’s Initiative vice chair and membership vice chair.

“The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce has been like a multivitamin to me since I joined in 2003,” said Funke Frommeyer. “I feel energized by the environment and feel like a better, stronger businesswoman for participating.”
