Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) Announces John Land as General Manager of CIC St. Louis 

St. Louis, Missouri Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) is pleased to announce that John Land will be taking the role of General Manager at CIC St. Louis. John will take the helm as CIC St. Louis enters its seventh year of operating premium workspace, wet labs, and innovation-related programming for entrepreneurs across three buildings in the Cortex Innovation District. 

John joined CIC in 2017 as a Senior Relationship Manager. After two years in that role, he was promoted to Assistant Director for Sales and, in March 2020, stepped into the role of Site Director and Interim General Manager. 

“In my past four years at CIC, my colleagues and I have built vibrant communities full of brilliant ideas and heart. I am honored to formally step into the GM role and hope to expand on our work, to grow our community, and to continue to serve St. Louis.” 

In the last year, Land’s primary focus has been adapting the site’s offerings in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As vaccinations continue, he is excited to welcome clients back to a safe and collaborative workspace and to build an inclusive environment for all St. Louis entrepreneurs. 

A native of Alabama, John moved to St. Louis in 2013 and, for the 4 years prior to joining CIC, worked in administration for Washington University in St. Louis.
