Mr. McCoy will be joined by a panel of professional business brokers from the GABB who have extensive experience negotiating the sale of Georgia businesses.

The Tuesday, Feb. 26 meeting will begin at 10:30 a.m. preceded at 9:45 a.m. by a free networking breakfast sponsored by GABB Board member Kim Eells, Vice President of SBA Lending at Renasant Bank and Susan Kite, Vice President of SBA Lending at Renasant Bank. Hosting the meeting will be the Georgia Association of Realtors at 6065 Barfield Road, Sandy Springs, GA, 30328. The meeting is free and open to the public; guests should register online at the link provided below.

He joined the University of Georgia Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in September of 2017, after starting his own business of tax preparation and loan packaging. His business experience consists of several years in retail upper management, 19 years in commercial lending, three years in insurance, and four yuears as a small business owner.
