TWHBEA Names Director of Operations


LEWISBURG, Tenn. (Jun 1, 2007) -- The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) announced today that Nancy Lynn Beech Greene has accepted the position of Director of Operations and will be joining the Association effective June 25, 2007.  In this capacity Mrs. Greene will be responsible for two of the areas deemed most critical in both the short and long-term:  1) financial and operational activities of the HIO (Horse Industry Organization) Committee that is within the TWHBEA sponsored Sanctioning Plan, 2) Registrar.

Mrs. Greene has spent the past five years with Nissan North America, most recently as a Senior Analyst.  During her tenure with Nissan she has continually advanced through the ranks to ultimately be responsible for the financial reporting directly to Nissan Motor Limited, Japan, of over one hundred million dollars.  Previous to Nissan, Mrs. Greene was an accountant with Waterfall Farms, one of the largest breeding operations in the Tennessee Walking Horse industry.  “Mrs. Greene brings a wealth of industry knowledge and a professional acumen that we feel will be a strong asset for our team.  With the new HIO’s that are signing onto the Plan, her significant show management experience will be a tremendous benefit.   We are excited and looking forward to her future contributions to the TWHBEA,” said Charles R. Cadle, Executive Director.  Mrs. Greene has a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the University of Tennessee and is currently completing the coursework for a Masters degree.  She plans to pursue her CPA license as well.

“I have a life-long passion for the Tennessee Walking Horse and for this industry.  To have the opportunity to become a part of the Association is simply a dream come true and I am anxious to become a contributor to the ultimate success that I know our horse can experience.   After reviewing the TWHBEA sponsored Sanctioning Plan I am confident that this is the right thing for our industry and I look forward to my role in its progression”, said Mrs. Greene.
