Graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in Industrial Engineering in 1973 and worked at Georgia Power until my retirement in 2010. During the last 15 years of my career as a Region Manager a large part of my job was to be heavily involved in the Community thru many external organizations including Chambers, Foundations, civic organizations, and business associations. I am a 1994 graduate of Leadership Gwinnett. I co-founded the Gwinnett Student Leadership Program in 1994 and I am still involved in that program. I also helped establish the Gwinnett Public School Foundation several years ago and I am currently the Chair of the Board. I was also on the Board of Gwinnett Technical College for many years and after retirement from Georgia Power I taught a leadership course for two years. Currently I am the Chair of the Forsyth County Development Authority and a member of the Cumming-Forsyth Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.
Phyllis and I have been married since 1974 and have 3 daughters and 4 grandchildren. We spend our leisure time at Jackson Lake, and in Nashville and Savannah visitng daughters and grandkids.
