Chamber also salutes AgSouth as 2017s honored business
Darron Burnett is named Business Leader of the Year during Thursday's 96th Annual Statesboro Bulloch Chamber of Commerce Awards and Meeting at the Nessmith-Lane Conference Center.
The Statesboro Bulloch Chamber of Commerce on Thursday saluted Darron Burnette, a leader in creating the Blue Mile plan for the revitalization of South Main Street, as 2017 Statesboro-Bulloch Business Leader of the Year. In April, the plan won Statesboro a $1 million third-place national prize in the America’s Best Communities competition, bringing the community’s total winnings from that contest to $1,165,000. Burnette is regional CEO of the banking company Synovus for Southeast Georgia and Northeast Florida and was previously president and CEO of Sea Island Bank, now a Synovus location.
