When more than six feet of flood water rushed into two of Nashville’s key business enterprises destroying property and shutting down operations, Ajax Turner President Scott Turner and Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center President Colin Reed did not retreat.

Instead, the leaders focused on the immediate crisis and number one priority of ensuring individual safety and salvaging property and next got down to the business of mapping out the shortest road to recovery.  Three weeks after the flood, Ajax Turner is reloading its inventory and making customer deliveries from a temporary location and Gaylord expects the hotel to be back in business before the end of the year.
