He worked to develop a broader Downtown revitalization strategy and served as a liaison with community advocacy organizations.
“The health-related industry is one of greater Louisville’s core industry clusters that has experienced significant growth over the last two decades and will help propel our region to future success,” said Sarah Davasher-Wisdom, President and CEO of Greater Louisville Inc. “The Health Enterprises Network is important to building a collaborative relationship between key players in the industry to create a sustainable environment for future growth.
