Allen Austin recently completed a retained search engagement for the Texas Automobile Dealers Association and Darren Whitehurst was selected to serve as the Association’s next President. Darren is joining TADA after spending fifteen years at the Texas Medical Association. Darren’s career has been dedicated to leadership roles where, time and time again, he has led organizations to new heights.
Prior to joining TADA, Darren enjoyed a 15+ year career in senior leadership with the Texas Medical Association. Darren’s first job at the Capitol in 1991 was a clerkship for the Texas House of Representatives Transportation Committee. Darren earned a BBA in Accounting from Baylor University, a Master of Public Affairs from The University of Texas at Austin, and a Master of Science in Healthcare Administration from Trinity University.
“TADA conducted a thorough search considering dozens of candidates before narrowing on the sole finalist for the job. Darren’s long-standing reputation of leadership was exciting to the TADA board,” said Nancy Harper, TADA 2020 Board Chairman.
The retained search was managed and completed by Jackie Gorman, Senior Partner at Allen Austin.
