Meadows grew up in the Washington Park community, an Atlanta BeltLine Westside neighborhood before graduating from Morehouse College and Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. He stepped down from his post as President of Jim Adams LLC, an urban agriculture social enterprise, to become chairman of the board. Prior to the Jim Adams launch, Meadows served as a Vice President at the Metro Atlanta Chamber in roles focused on transportation, workforce, economic development and other areas critical to the Atlanta BeltLine.

Meadows’ leadership post at the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership is the latest in a career spent at the forefront of public policy, economic development and civic engagement at the state and local levels. He served as Deputy Policy Director for Governor Roy Barnes, worked as a managing consultant at Ernst & Young, and was Mayor Shirley Franklin’s Chief of Budget & Fiscal Policy. In that role, Meadows had a hand in laying the foundation for the Atlanta BeltLine tax allocation district and the sale of City Hall East, which has now been transformed into Ponce City Market.
