The Georgia Trust has benefited from an influx of Board leadership this year, including the sterling addition of Bertram Maxwell IV, who also serves as Chair of the Board of Trustees at Hay House.
After attending Furman University to complete his degree in business administration, Mr. Maxwell returned home to work at his father's furniture business in Macon. He is an active civic leader and a community advocate. His impressive dedication to his hometown is exemplified by his efforts on behalf of Hay House, which have included acting as co-chair of the 2007 and 2009 Seasons of the Vineyard events.
Both the Trust and Hay House have benefited from Mr. Maxwell's tireless advocacy and business acumen, though Mr. Maxwell offers his own assessment, "The success of Hay House has not come from me but those before me, those around me, and the continued hard work of those after me... I have the privilege of giving the go ahead to Katey Brown's great ideas."
A humble and gracious preservation proponent, Mr. Maxwell's positive attitude and outlook benefit us all. We hope you'll join us at Hay House for an exciting line-up of special events including the the fun and family-friendly Hay Days 1950s on October 10th and 2009 Seasons of the Vineyard wine-tasting on November 5.
