To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Shaun C. Willie of Union City, former senior counsel for Macy’s Inc., on his recent appointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve on the Board of Directors of the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority.
All Georgians will benefit from Mr. Willie’s service on the board, which addresses mobility and air quality in metro Atlanta and serves as the governor’s voice for strategic direction in transportation planning for Georgia’s most populous region. Also a former senior associate council for MARTA, he presently serves the legal profession as a board member of the Georgia chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel and is a former board member of the Georgia chapter of the National Black MBA Association.
Mr. Willie’s acceptance of this appointment is evidence of his continued dedication to public service. We wish him well in this new position of statewide leadership.
Brian D. “Buck” Rogers
President, State Bar of Georgia
