Digital Nashville (DN), the volunteer-driven nonprofit that serves professionals in digital technology, media and content fields, is looking for an executive director to succed Elin Eifler Mulron.
Mulron co-founded the organization in 2007 and formally chartered it in 2008. Earlier today, the group's website -- DigitalNashville.net -- showed 2,516 site-registration profiles as having been created over the years on the site.
Queried by VNC about an announcement regarding the leadership search that has been prominently displayed on the DN website, Mulron yesterday provided the following statement:
Mulron invited interested candidates to contact her via e-mail, with appropriate comments and credentials. Her email address is Elin at DigitalNashville dot Net
Between 2008-2011, in particular, Mulron and volunteers experimented with and fostered a number of initiatives within the Digital Nashville community, including a corporate innovation mentoring program.
DN formal activity declined during the more than two years since Mulron joined Underwriters Laboratories (UL), which had previously bought Nashville-based PureSafety.
Within the unit now known as UL Workplace Health & Safety, Mulron is VP for channel partnerships and e-commerce.
In addition to UL, Mulron's career has included service with Amazon.com, Asurion, Turner Broadcasting, McKinsey & Co. and an internship with Goldman Sachs, among others. She holds a bachelor's in economics from Yale University and an MBA from the Stanford University Graduate School of Business.
She served during 2009 on the board of the Nashville Technology Council, among other community activities.
