Mesa Fire Chief Mary Cameli and Southwest Business Credit Services President/CEO Rich Adams are the 2019 Mesa Woman and Man of the Year. The Mesa Citizen of the Year Association last week announced the 84-year-old honors and Cameli and Adams will be feted at a dinner in February. Cameli began her career as a firefighter in 1983 with the Mesa Fire and Medical Department and as one of its first female hires. She rose through the ranks, including 11 years as assistant chief, before her appointment as head of the department in 2016. Cameli, who holds a bachelor’s degree in education and a master’s in organizational management, is past president of the Arizona Fire Chiefs Association and is the metro section representative on its board.
