The Georgia Education Foundation (GEF) has named Reginald Phams the Interim Program Director of the Georgia Mentor Protégé Connection, the state of Georgia’s premier small business mentoring program. In existence since 2001, the GMPC was initiated by Governor Roy Barnes, and was the first state-sponsored mentoring program of its kind in the nation. Oversight and management of the GMPC transitioned from the state of Georgia to the GEF in 2012. Reggie is a veteran of several positions of increasing responsibility with the Georgia Minority Supplier Development Council (GMSDC), including a role as Operations Manager for the GMPC. He is an advocate for small business, an adjunct professor at Atlanta Technical College and a small business owner himself, so he brings a valuable base of relevant experience to the role. The holder of a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from DeVry University and a Master of Business Administration degree from the Keller Graduate School of Management, Reggie has been a valuable member of the GMSDC team since 2012. Please join me in congratulating Reggie on this appointment and welcome him as he makes the transition.
Reggie will immediately begin working with the MPC Advisory Committee to continue the ongoing Alumni Activities and prepare for the incoming 2020 class. You may reach Reggie for questions or suggestions by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 404-589-1824. To nominate a small business for the upcoming class visit www.georgiampc.org .
