Multiple news outlets in Nashville reported late yesterday that Michael Brody-Waite, Chief Executive Officer of the Nashville Entrepreneur Center, would be leaving the organization by the end of the year.
Named to the position three years ago, Brody-Waite has talked candidly about the personal challenges he faced earlier in his life and how overcoming them has affected his vision for Nashville’s entrepreneurial support organization. In this first article in a two-part teknovation.biz series from 2017, he described a “last ditch” chance to turn around his life came in 2002 when he entered The Ranch, an addiction recovery facility in Nashville.
Media reports indicate that a search firm will be engaged to find his successor. As far as Brody-Waite’s plans are concerned, those reports said he would be more engaged speaking about addiction, recovery and authenticity.
