The Council organization presents its inaugural LHC Legacy of Leadership Award to entrepreneur Jim Lackey Jr., chairman of Complete Holdings Group, in recognition of his support of LHC and of the professional development of emerging health care leaders since the program’s founding in 2002.

Lackey emerged on the Nashville scene with the founding of InterMed in 1996.

After changing the company name to Passport Health Communications, Inc. in 1998, Lackey eventually sells to Experian for $850 million in 2004.
