After graduation, he continued his education at Georgia Tech where he graduated summa cum laude with degrees in Chemical Engineering and Economics in 2002. Then he moved to Texas to work in the largest refinery in the United States, Exxon Mobil, as an engineer. After 4 years at Exxon, Joey determined that he liked business more than engineering and applied to Harvard’s Business School. He moved his family to Boston and graduated in 2008 with his MBA. Upon completion of his master’s degree he moved back to Atlanta and accepted a position with McKinsey and Company, which is the oldest and largest strategy consulting firm in the world. Joey works with a wide range of clients from the largest companies in the world on business strategy that will make their great institutions better.
Joey Hardison lives in Atlanta with his wife, Katie Orr Hardison ’97, and 3 beautfiul children, Grace (9), Baker (6), and Cole (3). We are excited to have him join us at graduation as our alumni speaker and share his words of wisdom with the Class of 2014.
