Florida-based European Wax Center will open its third Nashville-area location later this month in the Thoroughbred Village shopping center at Cool Springs Boulevard and Mallory Lane. The franchise is being run by Betsy Wigington (pictured), whose team is offering various free services the week of the March 17 before formally opening for business a week later. European Wax Center opened its first Middle Tennessee store in Green Hills almost two years ago.
Vanderbilt Health System CEO Wright Pinson spoke this week to members of the newly merged Williamson County Chamber of Commerce. His talk covered a lot of high-level policy ground and the strategic options for hospital players. He also discussed how the VUMC system plans to tackle the brave new world of health care post reform.
Then he switched gears a bit and filled in the crowd on his team's plans — announced in the fall of 2010 — to consolidate many of its Williamson County providers in one setting on the east side of Interstate 65. This is the first time we've seen the rendering below, which shows the $82 million complex from the east side as it will face Carothers Parkway.
The newest building in Boyle Investment's Meridian Cool Springs complex has landed another tenant in the form of Computer Technology Systems, an Alabama-based provider of various IT support services. CTS has set up shop on the third floor of 5000 Meridian, which has this year also landed M*Modal, Skanska Construction and Brentwood Capital Advisors as tenants.
"Our company's roots are in the Southeast, and our Nashville office allows us to be more responsive and better serve this market," says Larry Lilley, President and CEO of CTS. "With existing business in Nashville, this expansion fulfills our strategic model of providing a local presence for our clients."
Officials with Cool Springs-based Nissan Ameircas today announced that François Dossa, currently Nissan Brazil's general director of finance and administration, has been appointed president of Nissan Brazil, effective Jan. 1, 2013.
Dossa will assume the presidential responsibilities of Christian Meunier, who was recently named president of Nissan Canada.
Workers will break ground this morning on a 23,000-square-foot building in the Mallory Park development adjacent to Interstate 65 at the northern tip of Cool Springs. By next May, the site will be home to Quest Sports Center, a facility that will combine sports training — think D1, which sits just a few miles south — as well as various amenities, lounges and meeting rooms. Also to be included is the new headquarters for TBH Global Asset Management, a money management firm run by former Fifth Third portfolio manager David Merrell.
Merrell has partnered on this project with Art of Strength, a national sports training facility chain. His firm, which currently has offices in Green Hills and downtown Franklin, manages about $210 million for about 300 clients.
