Law alum to head state economic development office
Chris Carr (BBA ’95, JD ’99), former chief of staff to U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, was selected by Gov. Nathan Deal to become commissioner of the state Department of Economic Development.
Carr replaces Chris Cummiskey (BBA ’96), who joined Southern Power, a Southern Co. subsidiary, as chief commercial officer. Cummiskey was economic development commissioner for two years, following a position as UGA director of state government relations. Carr began working for Isakson in 2004, running his Senate campaign.
