Louisville’s LEAP alliance hires former Cintrifuse VP as its new CEO

It was erroneously reported in late December that Wendy Lea had agreed to lead the new “Louisville Entrepreneurship Acceleration Partnership” (LEAP), a collaboration between the University of Louisville, Louisville Healthcare CEO Council, XLerateHealth LLC and Greater Louisville Inc.’s EnterpriseCorp. In fact, she agreed to be the organization’s Chief Entrepreneurial Advisor.

The partners did not look too far away from Lea’s former base of operations – Cintrifuse in Cincinnati – to find its new, full-time leader. The new Chief Executive Officer is Patrick Henshaw, former Vice President for Growth, Start-ups, and Technology at Cintrifuse. Click here to learn more about him and his role.
