Scott Mertie, president of Kraft Healthcare Consulting, LLC (KHC), has been chosen for the Nashville Business Journal’s 2019 Most Admired CEOs and Their Companies Awards. The winners were determined through a public nomination process, followed by a closed voting process among the nominees.
Scott, who has more than 25 years of experience in the healthcare and accounting industries, formed KHC as an affiliate of KraftCPAs in 2009. He has led the company through continued growth over the past 10 years. KHC now provides advisory and compliance services to healthcare providers in more than 40 states, Puerto Rico, and Guam.
In addition to his work with KHC, Scott is being recognized for his leadership of Nashville Brewing Company, a historic, local brewery that he revived in 2016.
Though this is his debut as a Most Admired CEO Awards winner, Scott has earned a number of awards throughout his career, including recent recognition by the NBJ as a winner of the publication’s 2019 Health Care Awards and 2019 Power Leaders in Finance.
The honorees, including KraftCPAs Chief Manager Vic Alexander (this year’s Lifetime Achievement winner), will be recognized Nov. 21 at the JW Marriott Nashville.
