Local FEI chapter names Bryant board president

The Nashville Chapter of Financial Executives International has selected Michael Bryant, National Association of State Boards of Accountancy chief financial officer and senior vice president, to be its board president for the 2014-15 year.

Bryant (pictured) joined FEI in 2011 and served on the Nashville board as co-vice president of program development from 2012 to 2014. In that role, Bryant and co-chair Angie Taylor of Vanguard Health Care LLC brought FEI Nashville members programming that included Alberto Gonzalez, former attorney general in the George H.W. Bush administration; Henry Juszkiewicz, CEO of Gibson Guitar Corp.; and Steve Buchanan, president of the Opry Entertainment Group and executive producer of TV show Nashville.

“Michael’s been an asset ever since he joined FEI,” Mark Myers, former FEI president, said in a release. “We look forward to his leadership, professionalism and creativity moving us toward how we can be a better organization locally.”

FEI operates as a forum for financial executives to network and share practices, be represented in critical national and global policy debates, and be aligned with a culture that fosters ethical leadership. The FEI Nashville Chapter has more than 120 members representing an association of senior- and mid-level corporate financial managers.
