Governance & Leadership
Hudson Shelton has served for almost 10 years in various sales and account management positions with industry-leading staff management and recruiting firms.
“Hudson embodies a young, entrepreneurial leader who is able to build collaborative relationships with healthcare providers and systems,” commented Derek Morkel. “The decreased average tenure of healthcare leadership compounded with the timeframe to find a candidate with the right experiential and cultural fit increases HealthTechS3’s need to assist. Hudson’s previous work in staffing healthcare services and human resources will be a benefit as we serve our clients more deeply.”
Prior to HealthTechS3, Shelton served at Medix and Sheakley Pay Systems in Nashville. He is an active member of the Tennessee chapter of American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management (AAHAM) and Nashville chapter of Medical Group Management Association (MGMA).
