Ballad Health’s Wilkes named to Leadership Tennessee’s first NEXT program

Ballad Health’s Clem “Bo” Wilkes has been selected for the first class of Leadership Tennessee NEXT, a program offering early-to-mid career professionals in-depth personal and career development.

Wilkes serves as Ballad Health’s vice president of system administration and governance. In his role, Wilkes provides management and professional support for the organization with an emphasis on planning, performance management, operational efficiency and effectiveness, and organizational development.

Leadership Tennessee is the state’s premier leadership education program. The only program focusing on Tennessee’s existing and emerging leaders, it spans the state and includes a broad spectrum of industries. The first class of 25 represents all three regions and the diversity in healthcare, education, economics, industry, agriculture, law and more.

“One of the goals of the program is to better understand the people who make up our region’s rich culture and creative heritage,” said Wilkes. “Ballad Health focuses on each person’s unique story, making this opportunity an excellent match with our goals.”

To expand their networks, with a goal of creating a legion of problem-solvers, the Leadership Tennessee NEXT class will meet three times in locations across the state: Memphis, Nashville and Greeneville. Each session will highlight issues and opportunities unique to Tennessee, working on ways to enrich the state and give opportunities to our people.

The sessions will also feature engagement with Leadership Tennessee Signature Program members and promote personal skill development.
