A pair of Baltimore-based tech leaders are joining the board of directors for TEDCO.

With the appointment by Gov. Larry Hogan, each will serve a four-year term on the board that oversees the state’s quasi-public agency backing early-stage tech companies. The appointments include:

  • Myra Norton, President and COO of Arena, the Otterbein-based company bringing predictive analytics to the hiring process at healthcare systems.
  • Robert Lord, cofounder and President of Protenus, the Little Italy company that makes a platform to protect patient data in healthcare.

The new appointments come at a time when TEDCO is rolling out a series of new initiatives designed to provide more resources to entrepreneurs and increase access to capital in the state. Along with having a background in data, TEDCO Board Chair Francis Smyth noted that each “bring added depth and operational expertise to our board that will help shepherd the organization as we evolve our programs and initiatives.”

“With Myra’s demonstrated history in data and analytics, and Robert’s extensive background in the strategic development space, their contributions to the board will be instrumental in continuing TEDCO’s mission of growing early-stage innovation and entrepreneurship in Maryland,” Smyth said in a statement.
