The Nashville Network: The Venue Guys

If you’re a musician in Nashville, you need a stage. Fortunately, in Music City, there are more than 180. With so many opportunities, it can be good to have a connection. Enter Colin Keegan (BBA ’13, BSEd ’13), talent booker for Brooklyn Bowl Nashville and Live Nation Southeast, and Brent Hyams (ABJ ’94), general manager at the soon-to-reopen Cannery Hall. They make the deals to bring musicians to the stage and so much more.

Customers as assets?

Not understanding the financial value of customers makes it impossible to make a case for the ROI of customer investments, argues University of Georgia Terry College of Business marketing professor Neil Bendle. Bendle has written several academic papers on the value of customers and how marketers can show the financial impact of their work. Now, he’s brought that research together in The Customer Asset: Understanding and Managing its Value.

Alex and Meredith Zimmerman: Island Life

In November 2017, just three months after they got married, Alex (BSES ’14) and Meredith Zimmerman (BBA ’15) quit their jobs in Charlotte, North Carolina, and moved to St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Their plans were vague, but their ambition and sense of adventure were anything but.

The Nashville Network: Stephanie Mundy Self

Like many residents of Nashville, Stephanie Mundy Self (BBA ’07, BMus ’07) harbored dreams of a career on stage. The South Carolina native earned a scholarship to UGA as a voice major in the Hugh Hodgson School of Music but soon saw many of her fellow musicians struggling to get jobs. She needed a backup plan, and she came up with a good one.

Haley Rose in front of the Terry Business Learning Community

A full circle journey

Haley Rose decided to attend the University of Georgia before she ever set foot on campus. She knew plenty about the university—her grandfather, Harold Black, was one of UGA’s first Black students to enroll and the first African American graduate from the Terry College of Business. But UGA’s sport management program finalized her decision. Rose […]

West Coast transplant committed to helping fellow students soar

Growing up in Thousand Oaks, California, a large suburb of Los Angeles, Kyle Huemme didn’t have a clue where he wanted to go to college, only that he wanted to try something new. Huemme fell for the charm of the Classic City and the University of Georgia after a college advisor encouraged him to tour […]

The Nashville Network: The Talent Agents

Matthew Morgan (BBA ’02) and Jonathan Insogna (AB ’04) graduated from UGA within a couple years of each other. They were in different programs — Morgan studied marketing; Insogna, speech communications — and they didn’t know one another, but they did share a love of live music. But could a love of music lead to a career? Did they think that was possible?

Georgia’s economy is headed for a “soft landing”

Georgia’s post-COVID economic expansion is expected to slow but continue, with GDP increasing by 1.1% in 2024, according to economic forecasters at the University of Georgia Selig Center for Economic Growth. While smaller than the 3% growth rate Georgia saw in 2023, the state will continue to outpace the national GDP growth rate, which forecasters project to be .8% in 2024.

A Windy City business story

Terry College Entrepreneurship

So you want to start a business?

It begins with an idea. Specifically, an idea designed to solve a problem — something that fills a consumer need. Then comes customer discovery — do others see value in the solution? Once product-market fit is verified, then comes pitching. Lots and lots and lots of pitching — selling the idea to anyone who might […]

Georgia Supreme Court Justices

A deep bench

The verdict is in: a Terry College education serves justice well in the state of Georgia.  Several Terry alumni hold prominent judicial positions across the state. These interpreters of the law use similar words to describe how a business core has helped them in their legal duties:  Logic. Discipline. Organization. Accountability. Planning. Prioritization. Financial acumen.  […]

A golden age for Terry golf

Terry and golf go together like azaleas and Augusta National. Look no further than the UGA Golf Course, where players recharge after rigorous practices in the plush Boyd Golf Center, named after the late former amateur standout and Georgia Golf Hall of Fame director David Boyd (BBA ’63). The course’s general manager? That would be […]

Harriet Williams

A village to raise a community

Harriett Williams should have been worried. As the holiday season approached in 2016, the freshly minted homeowner  — with a new car to boot — was working through her fourth year as a forensic technology associate for KPMG in Atlanta. Responsible for data collection in client investigations (“cool things I can’t talk about,” she says), […]
