Cumberland Region Tomorrow names new CEO/President

Cumberland Region Tomorrow is proud to announce that Carol Hudler, former Tennessean Publisher and founder of Hudler Success Strategies, is our new CEO/President!   

“I’m excited to be leading such an important effort during this dynamic time of growth in Middle Tennessee.” Hudler said. “The region includes counties with diverse priorities, and it’s important that the needs and values of each are reflected in how we develop the land and connect the pieces. Good planning ensures that business growth and quality of life intersect.”  

Cumberland Region Tomorrow (CRT) is a private, non-profit, citizen-based regional organization that works with public and private partners to help shape patterns of growth and development that enhance and sustain the ten-county region’s future livability and economic vitality. The region comprises Cheatham, Davidson, Dickson, Maury, Montgomery, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson, and Wilson Counties.   

 “We’re glad to have Carol’s energy and drive to help us execute our new three-year strategic plan,” said Keith Simmons, CRT Board Vice-Chairman.  “Through her efforts and those of our directors, we will engage with the region’s residents and leaders to create a shared understanding of the values and assets that define and bind us as a region and to develop and implement plans to protect those values and assets as we grow by an expected one million people over the next twenty years.”  

Hudler will facilitate CRT’s eighth annual POWER OF TEN Regional Summit  November 9 at Nashville’s Music City Center. Hundreds of Middle Tennessee leaders in government, economic and community development, land-use and transportation planning, architecture, and engineering will convene to discuss top regional issues and collaborate on how to meet the challenges and opportunities created by the region’s growth. This year’s Summit will feature updates on regional issues and outcomes from and examples of successful regional collaboration from elsewhere in the U.S.
