Bredesen appoints Haslam to TTDC Board

[Updated 2:38 PM] Gov. Phil Bredesen today announced his appointment of City of Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam to the board of directors of the Tennessee Technology Development Corporation. Haslam succeeded Tennessee Municipal League Executive Director Margaret Mahery, whose term expired June 30. Haslam is a member of TML, which is assured a TTDC by law. Prior to becoming Mayor, Haslam served as president and director of Pilot Corp., the Knoxville-based company operating convenience stores and travel centers nationwide. He was also CEO of SAKS Direct, the e-commerce and catalogue division of Saks Fifth Avenue. A TTDC source said the board still has three positions open. TTDC gets to appoint one of those three and Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey will name the other two. This post will be updated as information becomes available.
