For the past three years the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) has been recognizing influential members of local business communities under the age of 30. In August, 2012 the Middle Tennessee Chapter of CFF released a listing 30 business professionals they believe have made significant impacts in their community through leadership and volunteer work. Among that list was Premier Parking CFO, William Clay. Clay joined the Premier Parking team in 2010 and has since helped increase the Nashville parking management company’s profitability by more than half.  In addition, Clay also donates his time working with the United Way Sennet Society, as well as the Phoenix club – benefiting the Boys and Girls Club of Nashville. Clay and other 30 Under 30 members will be recognized at the Nashville 30 Under 30 gala, September 21, 2012 at the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn.

“I am truly honored to be recognized by such an excellent organization,” stated Clay. “The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation represents a great cause and I am committed to doing all I can to help support future research and their mission to finding a cure.”

In addition to being honored as an outstanding member of his local business community Clay, along with the other 29 young professionals, will be given a chance to make an even bigger difference. As a member of Nashville’s Top 30 Under 30, Clay will be campaigning to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Close to 90 cents of every dollar donated will go towards researching a cure for cystic fibrosis, care services and educational programs. Those interested in helping Clay or any other members of Nashville’s Top 30 Under 30 reach their goal can do so by visiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation – Tennessee Chapter website.  Visitors can simply donate via the website or help by purchasing a ticket to the Nashville 30 Under 30 gala.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was founded in 1955 with the mission of supporting research and education over the genetic disease.  Cystic fibrosis attacks the lungs and digestive system and affects about 30,000 children and adults in the United States. More than half of the patients suffering from cystic fibrosis are diagnosed with the disease by age two.  Prior the establishment of the CFF children diagnosed with cystic fibrosis rarely lived long enough to attend elementary school. Thanks to the efforts of organizations like CFF and their supporters, many who have been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis are living well into their 30’s and 40’s.

“Premier Parking is proud of William and his dedication to not only our business, but to offering his time to help those in need,” said Premier Parking President Ryan Chapman.  “We feel William is a great ambassador to the Nashville business community and sets an excellent example for our other team members to follow.”
