Greater Nashville Technology Council announces new leader

The Greater Nashville Technology Council has named an executive at HCA Healthcare as its next President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Elise Cambournac, Assistant Vice President of Information Technology at HCA since 2013, will succeed Brian Moyer who announced in December his plan to step down as leader of the tech council. A seasoned executive with 20 years of experience in the technology sector at an international level, Cambournac will assume her new role on April 18. About 10 days earlier, she will be introduced to the membership at the “Nashville Technology Summit,” the Council’s annual meeting.

Prior to joining HCA, Cambournac worked internationally for JABE Consulting and Cognizant Technology Solutions and served as President and CEO for ITTI Private Limited, a technology professional services firm located in Bangalore, India. She began her career as a Senior Software Engineer and Director of Enterprise Solutions for WebMD/Emdeon, which is now Change Healthcare. Cambournac has a master’s degree in electrical engineering from SUPELEC (Ecole Superieure d’Electricite) in Paris, France and is fluent in English and French. She currently serves on the board of the Interfaith Dental Clinic in Nashville and previously served on the board of Women in Technology of Tennessee (WiTT) in Nashville. Cambournac is also an advisor to the Nashville Entrepreneur Center, and she has served as a guest lecturer at Vanderbilt University and Lipscomb University.

“I’m incredibly honored to assume leadership of the tech council during a time of such promise for the tech sector in Middle Tennessee,” Cambournac said in this news release (Elise Cambournac Named President and CEO of NTC). “All of the ingredients are in place for the Greater Nashville Technology Council to become the preeminent tech council and catalyst for growth for the tech community, guiding Nashville to be one of the nation’s leading centers of technology. Brian and his team have done an incredible job of helping our city and region during this time of growth and supporting the tech community at large.”

Concurrent with hiring a new leader, the Council’s Board of Directors also announced the promotion of two long-time staff members to senior leadership positions. Chief of Staff Sandi Hoff has been named Chief Operating Officer and retains her role as Executive Director of the NTC Foundation, and Vice President of Public Affairs and Communications Alex Curtis has been named Chief Development Officer.
