Bob FisherBelmont President Dr. Bob Fisher was recognized this week by the Nashville Business Journal (NBJ) in the publication’s annual Power 100 list. This year the list of the city’s “most powerful business leaders” was divided into five categories: Heavy Hitters, Industry Giants, Connectors, Dealmakers and Trendsetters. Dr. Fisher was recognized among the Trendsetters, which NBJ Editor Lori Becker described as “…among the city’s most creative, leading the business community with new ideas. They’re big-picture thinkers with the 30,000-foot view of Nashville’s business community.”

In addition to noting the significant enrollment and endowment growth during his 17-year tenure, the magazine remarked, “Fisher has worked to elevate Belmont’s status locally by tailoring programs to specifically address the needs of the city’s business community, especially the city’s arts and music industries. As a result, Belmont is positioning itself as a school of choice for companies looking to fill their talent pipeline.”
