Athens, Ga. — Investment manager Tim Chapman will speak at the next installment of the 2011-12 Terry Leadership Speaker Series at the University of Georgia. His presentation is set for Friday, Nov. 4, at 10:10 a.m. in room 101 of the Miller Learning Center.

Sponsored by the Institute for Leadership Advancement at the Terry College of Business, the program is free and open to the public.

Chapman is CEO of Stadion Money Management, headquartered in Watkinsville, Ga. He co-founded Stadion in 1991, having begun his investment career in 1981 while studying economics at the UGA.

In 1991, he helped create the technology-driven actively managed investment model that is the cornerstone of Stadion’s investment management strategy. Several years later, he launched Stadion Retirement, bringing Stadion’s “win by not losing” investment strategy to 401(k) retirement plans. Stadion now manages more than 100,000 401(k) investor accounts. Chapman has been named Defined Contribution News’ “Advice Provider of the Year,” and he was featured in a cover article in Investment Advisor magazine.

Chapman is the second executive this fall to be invited to address students through the Terry Leadership Speaker Series. Former Atlanta mayor Shirley Franklin spoke on Oct. 7. Next February, Timothy M. Adams, the chief private brands officer for Macy’s Inc., and Jay Gould, a group president with Newell Rubbermaid, will close out the speaker series.

The Institute for Leadership Advancement is a leadership development unit housed in the Terry College of Business. Its programs stress the importance of principled leadership based on core values and emphasize leadership as a collaborative process and not as a position. The institute’s ultimate aim is to create a new class of leaders who are well trained and ready for responsibility, committed to stewardship and pursuers of excellence, characterized by integrity and defined by purpose.
