Originally printed in IPSConnect Winter 2016

The University of Tennessee Institute for Public Service (IPS) named Macel Ely director for its Naifeh Center for Effective Leadership, a role he assumed in October.

Ely, who was training program manager for IPS’s Municipal Technical Advisory Service (MTAS), served as a training specialist with the Naifeh Center from 2007-2013. He succeeds former Naifeh Director Gary Peevely, who retired in the spring.

“With his background at the Naifeh Center, his experience as a training manager and his partnerships across the state, Macel will capably lead the Naifeh Center into the future,” said IPS Vice President Herb Byrd III. “We’re pleased to have someone with his experience and many talents taking the helm of the center.” Ely received a bachelor’s degree in public administration from Kentucky Wesleyan University, as well as a master’s in public administration and doctorate in educational leadership and policy studies from UT Knoxville.
