BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Willem Houck

President

Willem is a bit of a medical chameleon: he’s the founder and operator of a medical devices company, a medical payment reform company and a medical packaging company. In short, a true entrepreneur with a focus on innovation. He’s also extremely competitive. Imagine how he felt when his 8 year-old daughter beat him at tennis. Bouncing back from defeat, he took up tennis lessons. He needed 2 years to match her level. Last, but by no means least, he’s proud of the growth in TNC membership and exciting new programming effectuated under his presidency.
