Department of Marketing


The Sales Executive RoundTable (SERT) brings together the top sales officers from major firms located in the Atlanta area in order to facilitate professional development by giving its members the opportunity to network with their peers and to keep abreast of the latest developments in the field. The SERT was founded in 2012 by Stephen P. Young, retired SVP at MCI and Verizon and now a Lecturer in Sales and Marketing at Georgia State University’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business.

Member firms enjoy a special relationship with the faculty of Robinson’s Department of Marketing. In exchange for financial support and access to corporate resources, members receive advice and research assistance from the sales and marketing faculty as well as priority access to 1,500 graduate and undergraduate students who are concentrating their studies in sales and marketing disciplines.

The Sales Executive RoundTable provides programming designed to enhance member effectiveness in achieving organizational goals. Meetings are led by preeminent experts in sales or conducted as roundtable discussion on topics selected by members.

Membership is limited to 30 companies to ensure that executives can effectively network with their peers and enjoy thoughtful discussion of meeting topics.
