Tom Reller, MA, BA
Vice President and Head of Global Corporate Relations
A gifted writer and communicator, Mr. Tom Reller collaborates with many organizations to promote Elsevier’s contributions to health and science by developing partnerships through The Elsevier Foundation. Nursing has benefited greatly from his keen interest in the future of the profession by focusing the Foundation’s support on a specific need: that of recruiting and retaining new nurse faculty to ensure that future nurses can be educated for tomorrow’s health care challenges. In 2008, due largely to his success in communicating to his corporate colleagues at Elsevier the need for developing a talented group of novice nursing faculty who would become the next generation of deans and nursing school directors, The Elsevier Foundation teamed with STTI to develop a program now known as the Nurse Faculty Leadership Academy (NFLA). Expert nurse faculty advisers assisted with the creation of opportunities for junior faculty members to build leadership skills within their academic nursing education settings under the watchful eyes of a dedicated group of seasoned mentors.
