Leadership Academy Changes Name to New Memphis Institute
The Leadership Academy announced its name change today to the New Memphis Institute effective immediately.
While there is a change in the name and branding, the mission and programming remain the same. The tagline, “Talent for Transformation,” speaks to the purposeful impacts the organization is making and will continue to make. “We have built a solid reputation as the talent engine for our city. New Memphis Institute better communicates the impact we’ve made, and continue to make on Memphis, and the transformation we see taking place each and every day through our dedicated participants and alumni,” said President and CEO Nancy Coffee in a press release.
With statistics including more than 700 Memphis executives as Leadership Development alumni, 115 community action project developed by Fellows, and an annual economic impact in Memphis of $70 million, Coffee said the new name is a more accurate summary of what drives the organization — and the change that it drives in our city.
