Elizabeth Wilson Camp, President and CEO of DF Management Inc.
Elizabeth W. "Betsy" Camp is a Georgian through and through. A native of Rome, Ga., she was educated in Athens and currently lives in Atlanta. After graduating with high honors from the Terry College's J.M. Tull School of Accounting in 1974, she earned a law degree from the University of Georgia. Early in her career, she worked as a tax accountant and later as a lawyer in Atlanta and Washington, D.C., where she earned a Master of Laws in Taxation degree from Georgetown Law Center.
In 1984, at the request of her father, Ms. Camp returned to Georgia to help the struggling family business that he had founded. Together, they returned Camp Oil Co. to financial health. During the next 16 years, she served as president and CEO of Camp Oil, which developed and operated convenience stores, truck stops and restaurants in nine states. At the time of its sale in 2000, Camp Oil Co. was recognized by Georgia Trend magazine as one of the largest private businesses in the state.
Today, Ms. Camp is president and CEO of DF Management Inc., a private investment and commercial real estate management company. As a result of her experiences in the family business, Ms. Camp discovered her passion for corporate governance. She has served on numerous boards of directors, such as Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia, and currently serves on the boards of two public companies in Georgia, Synovus Financial Corp. and Genuine Parts Co.
Ms. Camp has been a devoted volunteer to many nonprofit organizations, including the Darlington School, the Woodruff Arts Center and the Atlanta Area Council of the Boy Scouts, and is a strong advocate for her beloved alma mater. Currently, she chairs the Terry Dean's Advisory Council and is a key supporter and champion of the Terry Women's Initiative, which was recently honored as an "Innovation That Inspires" by AACSB International. She also serves as an advisory trustee for the UGA Foundation.
Last but not least, Ms. Camp is the proud mother of two children, Alicia and Will Vesely, both of whom are pursuing graduate degrees.
