Tom Escott, President
Tom has been a Chartered Financial Analyst for 42 years serving with C&S National Bank, Paine Webber, Robinson Humphrey Company and Pritchard Capital Partners. He and Maureen have four children, eight grandchildren and have recently retired and moved to Blue Ridge. Their property is on Heritage Point.
Dale Greene, Vice President
Dale Greene and his wife, Toots, have owned property in Fannin County since 2003 and currently reside in downtown Blue Ridge. A retired Vice President of United Parcel Service, Dale and Toots moved to Blue Ridge full time in October of 2014 after nearly twenty five years in Alpharetta/Johns Creek. Dale is a decorated veteran of the Viet Nam war and served five years on active duty and twenty years in the Reserve of the United States Marine Corps. Dale and Toots have maintained a boat on Lake Blue Ridge since 2004 and enjoy all types of water activity and feel strongly that the lake is a wonderful resource that must be protected and enjoyed.
Teresa Joel, Secretary
Teresa and her husband moved to Atlanta in 1987 where she built her career in technology throughout the 1990s. In 1999, they purchased a second home on Lake Blue Ridge in Necowa Cove and their family has enjoyed escaping to the lake in the spring and summer months. With the successful growth of Blue Ridge throughout the past decade, Teresa feels it’s more important than ever to commit to preserving the environmental goals of LBRCA.
Geoff Edelman, Membership
Geoff has been an LBRCA Board Member since 2012. He and his wife Patty live along Browns Cove, where you may have noticed his Tiki Hut. They purchased their home in 1998, and moved here full-time in 2007. Geoff has two children and two grandsons, and they all enjoy their family time in the mountains. While there was a time when Lake Blue Ridge was an isolated reservoir, going forward it’s likely to become an increasingly popular retirement area and get-away destination around the southeast. Geoff strongly supports the Board’s efforts to help control lake and shoreline use in an environmental fashion for the enjoyment of future generations. They’ve been fairly successful at partnering with the USFS, the TVA, and Fannin County, and must continue to develop these relationships for long-term success.
