Elcan, 55, joined the Delta Waterfowl Board of Directors in February 2019.

Currently, he serves as a partner in Frisco Partners, a leading global equity firm specializing in investments in technology and technology-enabled businesses. Previously, Elcan was the founder and president of China Healthcare Group organized in 2008 to build hospitals in China. He also served as executive vice president-medical office properties for Health Care Properties Investors, Inc.

In addition to Delta Waterfowl, Elcan is deeply involved with many charitable and conservation organizations. These have included board positions with the Frist Foundation, the Land Trust for Tennessee, the Dan and Margaret Maddox Charitable Trust, Tennessee Wildlife Resource Foundation, YMCA of Middle Tennessee and others.

Elcan was introduced to Delta Waterfowl by fellow board members Will Yandell and John Dobbs, but his hunting history and passion go back much farther. At age 7, he was introduced to hunting by his father, and has been devoted to it ever since.

The Delta Waterfowl pillars of producing ducks and ensuring the future of duck hunting align with Elcan’s views.

“Association with Delta supports my passion for hunting by helping with wildlife conservation and habitat,” he said.
