Downtown Center Staff and Management Changes

As the University assumes possession of the new Downtown Center (former Georgia Mountains Center), the EVP’s office announces changes instituted to better serve our increasing needs in accommodating special events for external and internal clients.  Beginning January 2, 2013 Jewell Holtzclaw will serve as the Director of Physical Assets & Logistics. Jewell, and her staff, will have primary responsibility for the support and set up of special events on the main campus and in the Downtown Center. In addition, Jewell will manage office moves, the campus inventory, trash removal and general campus appearance concerns, and the organization of university assets to make the best use of space within our facilities. Mike Hollimon, Director of Facilities, and his staff will assume primary responsibility for repairs, renovations and additions to campus facilities and equipment in all Brenau locations.

Work orders should continue to be submitted via the current work order system for requests to either of these areas. Changes will be made shortly enabling you to submit a work order to one of these two divisions directly; in the meantime, manual sorting will assure that your work order is sent to the appropriate office. Telephone numbers will remain the same, and both Mike and Jewell will continue to operate from their current offices on the main campus.

We appreciate the fine work done by both of these Directors and hope that these changes will enable the university to better streamline our operations as we move into our new location on the Gainesville square.
