NASHVILLE – October 13, 2021 – LaunchTN officially announces today its call for CEO candidate inquiries in a search for new leadership with the posting of a recruitment profile, or job description, for the position. Interested parties can find the profile and information about inquiring for the organization’s leadership role here.
The candidate profile was created and refined by the executive search firm Stanton Chase after numerous meetings and calls with LaunchTN stakeholder groups including Tennessee entrepreneurs, investors, universities and entrepreneur centers.
“The process that the LaunchTN CEO Search Committee has undertaken to define the organization and what we need from a leader right now has been extraordinary,” said committee chair Bruce Doeg. “Getting feedback about the opportunities before our organization from Tennessee entrepreneurs and the people who have invested their resources in them tells an incredible story about the bright future before us, and excites me to be a part of this organization at this moment.”
LaunchTN and Stanton Chase will use their vast national network to reach potential candidates and encourage them to apply. “We expect this part of the process to last six to eight weeks,” said Ken Nimitz who is leading the Stanton Chase team in the search. “It is our goal to put the recruitment profile in front of as many people as we can – on a national scale – who would be right for the job or might know someone who would be a great leader for Launch Tennessee.”
Interested candidates are encouraged to review the posting and contact Stanton Chase to inquire for the role.
