The Missouri Partnership, a statewide nonprofit business attraction and marketing organization, has selected attorney Randell Wallace, partner with Lathrop & Gage LLP in Springfield, as its board chairman.

“Randell’s level of dedication to Missouri Partnership as well as his commitment to the economic development of the state makes him a great selection for board chairman,” Greg Nook, outgoing Missouri Partnership board chairman, said in a news release.

Wallace has served on the St. Louis-based Missouri Partnership board since its inception in 2007, the release said.

In his role at Lathrop & Gage, Wallace practices in mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, securities and economic development incentives. He was named a finalist for the 2008 Lawyer of the Year by the Missouri Lawyers Weekly for his representation of Springfield-based McQueary Bros.

In Springfield, he also has served as chairman of the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce, president of the Springfield Business Development Corp., chairman of the Greene County Planning and Zoning board, and president of Leadership Springfield, the release said.
