Erlanger Health System Foundation Board announces Kyle Bryant and Larvizo Wright join the board for 2021.
Mr. Bryant is a partner at Market Street Partners, a certified public account firm in downtown Chattanooga. He worked for a local CPA firm out of college focused mostly on audits, but eventually left to work with Access America Transport and the Lamp Post Group. There he discovered a passion for helping small businesses. Kyle felt like his career elevated quickly while working on a large company sale in 2014 where he earned the experience and confidence to help many more startups through the fundraising and transaction process. Bryant earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
Bryant said, "Having grown up in a family of medical professionals I feel that I have a unique perspective on the impact of a hospital like Erlanger providing world class medical care, serving the uninsured and also being one of Chattanooga's largest employers. I am honored to serve on the board and look forward to contributing any way possible."
Mr. Wright has a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, an MBA from Capella University, and is a licensed CPA. Mr. Wright serves as director of corporate audit at Unum, which is a publicly traded, Fortune 300 company. He also serves as president of Urban League - Young Professionals of Chattanooga, vice state director of East TN for Phi Beta Sigma, Fraternity, Inc., and as minister of music at his church, where he plays the piano.
“I have a passion for working with people and organizations that specialize in helping others when they are going through difficult times,” said Mr. Wright. “The Erlanger Health System Foundation helps the Erlanger Health System to pursue a higher level of operational excellence intended to improve the delivery of quality health care to the people of Chattanooga and the surrounding areas. That is a mission I’m happy to be onboard with.”
The Erlanger Health System Foundation is governed by a board of directors comprised of volunteers. Led by Chairwoman Lynn Mosier Bryant, Vice Chair Less Lee, Secretary Dr. Dave Bhattacharya, Past Chair Linda Minks Hood and Treasurer James Purgason, the board of directors serves to build community awareness and raise funds for the Foundation’s fundraising initiatives.
