Shyam Reddy (JD ’00) Joins Euramax as SVP, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary

This evening, the UGA Alumni Association will host a reception in Atlanta for former 40 Under 40 honorees and the nominees for the next 40 Under 40 class. The 40 Under 40 Selection Committee is busy reviewing nominations, and will announce the 2013 class in just a matter of weeks. I then look forward to celebrating those young alumni at our annual 40 Under 40 Luncheon in September at the Georgia Aquarium.

But tonight is not only about recognizing the more than 300 nominees, it is about celebrating previous 40 Under 40 graduates. Those young professionals continue to grow, pursue new endeavors, and support their alma mater with great zeal. If you are a former 40 Under 40 honoree, please keep us informed about what you are doing – we want to share your accomplishments with the Bulldog Nation.

For instance, I’d like to congratulate 2011 40 Under 40 honoree, Shyam Reddy (JD ’00), on his new role with Euramax International Inc., an international building products company manufacturing aluminum, steel, vinyl and copper products. Reddy has been named the company’s senior vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary. In this role, he will serve as Euramax’s chief legal and compliance officer and will also manage the company’s real estate function and human resources department.

Prior to joining Euramax, the UGA School of Law graduate was the regional administrator of the Southeast Sunbelt Region of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) in Atlanta. Before accepting the presidential appointment at GSA, Reddy was a partner in the Atlanta office of Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton.

Reddy is a former member of the UGA Alumni Association Board of Directors and the UGA College of Public Health Board of Directors. He is a member of Downtown Atlanta Rotary and a graduate of the 2010 Class of Leadership Atlanta and 2005 L.E.A.D. Atlanta Class of Leadership Atlanta.

This young graduate has received multiple awards, including the 2012 Georgia Asian Times Top 25 Most Influential Asian Americans in Georgia; 2007 Marshall Memorial Fellowship; 2005 Georgia Trend Magazine Top 40 Under 40 Georgians; 2005 Atlanta Business Chronicle Top 40 Under 40 (Up and Comers); 2005 - 2010 Atlanta Magazine Georgia Rising Stars; and the 2005 Multicultural Law Mover and Shaker.

Congratulations, Shyam, on this new adventure – we know you will find great success with Euramax and lead the company into a period of great prosperity.

Faculty Spotlight: Dr. James Marshall Shepherd

Another star is born - and this time, it is a UGA professor stepping into the spotlight.

Dr. James Marshall Shepherd, a professor in the Department of Geography, will host a new Weather Channel show titled, “WxGeeks” (meaning Weather Geeks). 

Shepherd received his bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees from Florida State University, and joined the UGA faculty in 2006. He teaches courses including ‘Introduction to Weather and Climate’ to ‘Applied Climatology in the Urban Environment.’

Though he may be a new celebrity to the general public, Shepherd is well-known in the climate and weather community. He is a former NASA scientist, the 2013 President of the American Meteorological Society, and heads the nationally-recognized Atmospheric Sciences Program at UGA.

During each episode, Shepherd and other special guests will share expert advice, news and weather-related conversation to educate the viewers in an entertaining format.

WxGeeks producer, Mike Chesterfield, said, “We hope the show can be as geeky and technical as an offline conversation between geeky weather people would be.”
