Erlanger’s Britt Tabor Selected For Leadership Tennessee Class

Tuesday, June 11, 2019
Erlanger Health System Chief Financial Officer Britt Tabor has been named to this year’s Tennessee Leadership class, comprised of 46 leaders from rural and urban communities across the state.  Tabor will join six other Chattanooga leaders to take part in the annual statewide study program this year analyzing important issues faced by Tennesseans.  
 
“Tennessee has a lot of momentum right now, but Tennesseans continue to face significant challenges that require new and innovative partnerships to overcome them. Each class brings its own unique perspective and insight to the conversation, and we’re excited about Class VII joining the Leadership Tennessee network,” Leadership Tennessee Executive Director Cathy Cate said.
“Each class comes together during the course of the year, having difficult conversations that challenge their points of view on issues in their communities, and we’re looking forward to Class VII and developing our seventh cohort around their chosen focus areas.”
 
"Leadership Tennessee is an initiative of the College of leadership and Public Service at Lipscomb University in Nashville designed to bring together leaders representing the geographic and professional diversity of the state.  Entering its seventh year, Leadership Tennessee selects a new class of leaders annually to take part in a statewide study course while visiting different areas of Tennessee, learning best practices and analyzing important issues faced by Tennesseans. To date, Leadership Tennessee has built a network of 246 leaders across the state," officials said.
