JamesCongratulations to James Landrum, TNC Executive Director, and the entire 2014 class of 40 under Forty sponsored by Ingram’s Magazine.

“I’m in such great company. It was such a privilege and honor to be nominated,” said James. “I don’t do things simply for the recognition. But it’s nice to know that people who I look up to as mentors are recognizing the work that’s being done here at TNC.”

Besides being TNC’s Executive Director, James is involved in his neighborhood and in his community, volunteering with Friends of Alvin Ailey and sitting on other board of directors for other community groups.

James joined the TNC Family in 2001, and he’s been the Executive Director since 2004. During his time at TNC, he’s watched the agency undergo tremendous growth and expansion – especially in the past few years.

He really thinks of TNC as a family – a place individuals with intellectual disabilities can call home and employees have a significant impact on people’s lives on a daily basis.
