Atlanta, GA – Following hot coffee, breakfast and a lively VIP networking hour in the Woodruff Arts Center’s Rotunda, beautifully decked out in holiday attire, Capital Analytics President Abby Melone welcomed keynote speaker City of Atlanta COO Richard Cox to the podium in the Rich Theater.
Cox thanked Focus: Atlanta for taking such a deep interest in the metro area. He went on to laud the city’s accomplishments — which certainly contributed to Georgia once again being named the Best Place to Do Business. Cox has known Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms since high school, and he told a charming story about how he came to be the city’s COO and what the position means to him. He concluded his address by underscoring the need for regional leaders to continue to embrace their diversity as they work together toward a common goal: the One Atlanta vision.
