ATLANTA– Lee Cuthbert, a Location Specialist for Georgia’s Film, Music and Digital Entertainment office, will speak about the impact of the film industry on Georgia’s economy  at the July 26 meeting of the Georgia Association of Business Brokers (GABB).

GABB members represent owners of Georgia businesses and help them establish the sales price of their business, create marketing plans and strategies for the sale of their business, identify and qualify potential buyers, and work to protect the confidentiality of the entire process. The July 26 GABB meeting will begin at 10:30 a.m. in Dunwoody, preceded by a light breakfast and networking session. The meeting is free and open to the public.

Ms. Cuthbert  is a location specialist in the five-person Film, Music and Digital Entertainment office within the Georgia Department of Economic Development, which the state’s sales and marketing arm. Her office provides a number of services designed to attract new entertainment business investment to the state. As a location specialist, Lee is responsible for finding and showing appropriate locations for film, television, and commercial production. She also maintains the Department’s film tourism website TourGeorgiaFilm.com.

Lee is a graduate of Butler University in Indianapolis, and a 20-plus year resident of Atlanta.

The GABB is composed of professionals who work with owners of Georgia businesses. Many of today’s business buyers are individuals who have decided not to re-enter corporate America, but are ready to control their own destiny by purchasing and operating a Georgia business. The GABB’s monthly meeting is at the South Terraces Conference Center at 115 Perimeter Center Place, Atlanta.
