George Potter speaks at 2013 Business Forum


Williamsburg, Ky. – On Wednesday, April 17, University of the Cumberlands (UC) Hutton School of Business hosted the 6th annual Business Forum for Young Professionals.

The business forum is designed to prepare young professionals as they enter the business workforce. Industry professionals share their professional experiences and discuss ways in which businesses can thrive, not just survive, in any financial climate. The theme for 2013 was “How to Achieve Business Growth in a Recovering Economy.”

One of the speakers was George Potter, an entrepreneur whose ventures focus on real estate, real estate development, marina development, and title service operations. He is currently an equal partner in Bush Jankins Properties.

Prior to his current roles, Potter focused his ventures on sports as he founded and grew Premier Athletics LLC which was later on sold to Varsity Brands. At that time he was named Senior Vice President by Varsity Brands.

Potter holds a B.S. in Business Administration from UC, formerly known as Cumberland College, and an MBA from the University of Tennessee.

The forum was founded by Mr. J. Hunt Perkins. Perkins, a geologist, is president of J.
