NTC President Jeff Costantine confirms retirement plans
In January 2006, Costantine took the helm of NTC, following a 9-month term by ConduIT Corporation Founder and Chairman Ray Capp. Costantine had been in retirement only a few months, after finishing-up a 21-year career in information technology roles with HCA.
Costantine and Capp had followed David Condra, who led NTC from its founding in 2000 to Capp's arrival in 2005. Capp continues to lead ConduIT; Condra returned to daily operations of his long-established Dalcon Communications.
Costantine's as-yet unscheduled departure casts in doubt the leadership of the state's two largest regional technology organizations. In addition to NTC, by far the largest tech advocate is Oak Ridge-based Tech2020, a multifaceted organization that aims to serve the Tennessee Valley region from Chattanooga to Tri-Cities.
