PEACHTREE CORNERS – On Tuesday, the Georgia Center for Opportunity (GCO) announced that Buzz Brockway, an outgoing state representative from Lawrenceville, has joined the group’s executive leadership team as Vice President of Public Policy.

Since being elected to the legislature in 2010, Brockway has, among other things, sponsored and co-sponsored several bills aimed at increasing economic opportunity for Georgia families, protecting victims of human trafficking, and punishing abusers. As the Vice President of Public Policy, he will coordinate policy research and reform efforts aligned with GCO’s mission to provide all Georgians with access to quality education, meaningful work, and healthy relationships.

“This is a good day for GCO because we’re adding such a great person to our team. But this is also a good day for the people of Georgia, because it ensures that one the state’s most thoughtful and capable leaders continues to invest his considerable talents in the effort to create opportunities for all Georgians,” said Randy Hicks, President and CEO of the Georgia Center for Opportunity.
