    Join us for a roundtable discussion with David Salyers, VP National and Regional Marketing at Chick-fil-A. A friend once told him to "never speak about something unless you have passion for it!" - and he's kept that advice to this day, sharing his passion for helping others be remarkable in business.  Salyers has been on quite a journey. Having graduated from college on a Saturday morning, he started his career with Chick-fil-A before the day was over. Currently serving as the Vice President of National, Regional and Local Marketing for Chick- fil-A, Inc., David has invested his entire career as part of a team, committed to building the kind of company culture that people talk about! As a passionate student of life and business, he has spent over thirty years seeing the principles in his book play out corporately and in over 1,600 Chick-fil-A restaurants across the country. Serving as a board member for numerous non-profit organizations, and a few for-profit startups, has convinced him further that the principles contained within these pages are universally applicable. Having the unique opportunity to witness both great leaders and great organizations, he is energized to pass along the principles he has discovered from a personal journey, which can only be described as…Remarkable! Food will be provided for registered guests.

    Employer Information Session: Patterson Real Estate Advisory

    • Tuesday, February 10, 2015 at 4:30pm5:30pm

    Patterson Real Estate Advisory Group: Patterson is a commercial real estate capital intermediary and advisory company formed by Lance Patterson in 2010. We work with developers and owners of all property types (office, multi family, hotels, retail) to secure financing (debt, equity and subordinate debt) for their developments, acquisitions and refinancings, as well as advise companies on their real estate needs. Advising could include anything from strategy to selling their asset. We have completed over 100 transactions and placed almost $1 billion in capital since our inception. Most of our transactions are in the Southeast, but we will go where the transactions take us. It is important to note that Patterson is a boutique real estate investment bank, with currently 8 employees and offices in Atlanta and Charleston. Internship: Similar responsibilities and requirements to the Analyst position above, however we realize they will have less experience. Prefer rising seniors so that we could have a chance to hire them for the next year. Someone who knows they are interested in real estate and want to learn more about the business. The position will likely be very research oriented with the person collecting market data, calling brokers, and doing write ups. They will gain modeling experience and general deal experience. Would like someone who is available to work full time during the summer, who intends to use this as the first step in a potential career. By the end of the summer, the intern will have a very good understanding of all areas in real estate finance and how they may want to proceed after graduation.
