Greg Morgan, one of M&J’s Atlanta partners, had a unique opportunity come his way that would cause any Braves fan to turn green with envy. As the previous Chairman of the Cobb Chamber of Commerce, Greg was offered a sneak peak of the Braves new home, Suntrust Park! He, along with his wife Ruth, Jeff Fucito (Atlanta’s partner-in- charge) and Steve Byrne (Atlanta partner) toured the facilities and even had a chance to scope out the view from Mauldin & Jenkins’ season tickets.
“The Braves announcement that they were moving to Cobb County came in 2013 when I was Chairman of the Cobb Chamber of Commerce. During the Cobb County Board of Commissioners meetings related to the move and the signing of the memorandum of understanding, I spoke several times on the Chamber’s behalf in favor of the move to Cobb. Theresa Smith, Marketing Director for New South Construction, one of the primary developers for the Braves offered a tour when the time was right. We decided the time was right and took her up on her offer. Rob Ragan, also of New South Construction, guided us on the tour. We had a great time!” – Greg Morgan
