Randy Boyd
by Joel Ebert , The Tennessean Gov. Bill Haslam announced Monday that Randy Boyd, his commissioner of economic development, will be exiting his position and return to the private sector, setting off speculation that he could enter the 2018 gubernatorial race. ... Boyd, 57, who joined Haslam's administration in 2013 as a special adviser on higher education, helped create the state's Drive to 55 initiative, the governor's effort to increase the number of Tennesseans with a postsecondary degree or certificate to 55 percent by 2025. ... Boyd's economic development department has also generated nearly 50,000 new job commitments and almost $11 billion in capital investment in the state. (link)
