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.

Clear the Air at UGA

Uga needs your help to clear the air at UGA! 

UGA recently launched a "Let's Clear the Air" campaign to promote the University System of Georgia's ban on tobacco products on all system campuses.

The campaign, which began September 22, advises faculty, staff, students and campus visitors that "UGA is a tobacco- and smoke-free campus," in accordance with a policy adopted in March by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia.

The policy, which is effective starting October 1, reinforces the USG's commitment to provide a safe and amicable workplace for all employees as outlined in the Georgia Smoke Free Air Act of 2005 and to preserve and improve the health, comfort and environment of students, employees and visitors on all system campuses.

New signage around campus and messaging on the UGA website and via social media will promote the tobacco- and smoke-free campus policy, which applies to persons in indoor or outdoor areas, including all buildings, recreational areas, lawns, university sidewalks, university vehicles and parking lots.

Banned products include cigarettes, cigars, pipes, all forms of smokeless tobacco, clove cigarettes and any smoking device that uses tobacco such as hookahs or simulate the use of tobacco such as electronic cigarettes.

For more information on the policy and resources to promote the policy as well as resources available for tobacco cessation, see uga.edu/tobacco-free or contact UGA Human Resources at 706-542-2621.

Good Eats: Alton in ATH

Notable UGA alumni Alton Brown (AB ‘04) is coming home to the Classic City on October 21 to kick off the third leg of his “Edible Inevitable Tour.”

You might recognize Alton from his Food Network shows “Good Eats,” “Iron Chef America” and “Cutthroat Kitchen.” Brown began producing his own show in the late nineties when he was dissatisfied with the quality of cooking shows in America. His dream came true in 2011 when he won the James Beard Foundation Award for Best TV Food Personality.

He brings his charm and charisma to his culinary variety show. The two-hour stage show centers around food, includes food songs, a mini lecture/stand-up segment titled “10 Things I’m Pretty Sure I’m Sure About Food” and two very large food demonstrations. One of which creates such a big mess that he gives the first five rows ponchos.

The UGA Alumni Associations wants to give YOU the chance to go see Alton Brown live when he comes to the Classic Center! Check out the UGA Alumni Association’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages for more information on how to enter. Good luck and Go Dawgs!
