Executive Director

The acting board of the Greater Nashville Venture Capital Association is excited to announce Judith Byrd as the inaugural executive director of the new member association effective April 8. 

Byrd is a seasoned executive with experience in business, government, trade association, health policy and journalism. Most recently, she was director of Community and Government Relations for Ardent Health Services.

GNVCA is seeking an Executive Director who will play a critical and unprecedented role in shaping the GNVCA for future growth and impact.  The ideal candidate is a visionary leader with a passion for community engagement and experience in non-profit administration and management; serving an eclectic client base; working at the intersection of industry, non-profit, and government; and working collaboratively with a non-profit board of directors, committees, and other stakeholders. While VC experience is not required, a proven track record of building sustainable member-focused organizations and delivering value for member stakeholders is essential.
