The Kellogg Club of Atlanta enjoyed a fun-filled spring. The most exciting part was the April 5 MBA Update in Atlanta on the Business of Sports and the Economics of Baseball. This event was held at Turner Field and led by Kellogg Professor David Dranove. Our distinguished guests also included Kellogg Professor Lloyd Shefsky, Kellogg alumna Wendy Lewis from Major League Baseball, and John Schuerholz, executive VP and GM of the Braves. More than 40 alumni and guests attended. We want to extend our sincere appreciation and thanks to the Kellogg School, all attendees and special guests for helping to make this event so great.

In May, we started our 2003-2004 breakfast speaker series in conjunction with Wharton and INSEAD. Our guest speaker in May was Sergio Zyman, former chief marketing officer of The Coca-Cola Company and chairman of Zyman Marketing Group. More than 100 MBA alums attended this event. Our next breakfast event will be in September. We plan on having seven speakers throughout the year. As we complete the planning for these events, we will send out the dates and details. If you would like to help, please contact Sarita Soldz.

For further details on upcoming events please go to Additionally, Rick Berg, our VP of careers, remains willing to assist Kellogg alumni with career searches. Rick can be reached at: rberg@northhighland. com.

For a fun social event, please join us and Team Ivy on the second Wednesday of each month at the Park Tavern in Midtown from 7 to 9 p.m. for our monthly happy hour. Ask for ìTeam Ivyî at the door.

Additionally, we are in the planning stages of some exciting changes in club leadership for the fall. After four years serving as either president or co-president, Sarita Soldz will step down. She will remain active in the club and continue to help with the breakfast series and as a board member of the ABSA. These efforts will continue the transition plan for the club, which, ideally, will change one of its co-presidents every year. The new co-president will work with the existing co-president to maintain continuity, pass on key learning and bring new ideas and excitement to the club. Any questions, please contact co-president Chris Tomseth at the email address above. We look forward to seeing many Kellogg alums at our upcoming events!
