Entrepreneur Tawana Bain and horse racing businesswoman Anita Ebert have joined the Kentucky Derby Museum's Board of Directors. Additionally, several current board members are taking on new roles. Glenn Haygood, President & General Manager at WLKY-TV will serve as chair, David Nett, retired Customer Communications Manager at Kroger, as vice chair, Todd Spencer, Executive Chairman, President & CEO of Doe-Anderson, as Treasurer, and Briana Lathon, Senior Compliance Officer, Group & Military at Humana, as secretary. Board Member Lee Thomas is departing after serving six years.
“The Kentucky Derby Museum is fortunate to gain two more sharp businesswomen on its Board of Directors,” said Haygood. “Between the two of them, there is a lot of business wisdom, philanthropic work and passion for horse racing, which are huge assets to a Board that centers around that. I'm pleased to be taking the reigns as chairman of the Board with a strong team of leading minds in our community.”
