ATLANTA–Andrew Young School alumnus Roger Tutterow was recently appointed to the Henssler Financial Endowed Chair at Kennesaw State University.
Tutterow is an economics professor and director of the Econometric Center in the Michael J. Coles College of Business. As the new chair, he will conduct research, develop and teach courses, mentor students and faculty, and represent and promote the college to the community.
“Dr. Tutterow is one of the best-known economists in the Southeast,” said Kathy Schwaig, dean of the Coles College of Business. “His insights on economic, financial and statistical issues are sought by corporate and government leaders as well as many professional and civic organizations.”
The $500,000 endowment was a gift from longtime college supporters Gene and Pat Henssler. Gene is a professor emeritus of finance at the university and the president of Henssler Financial, a financial planning and money management firm. Pat is the principal at P.T. Henssler, C.P.A., LLC, a public accounting firm.
“I am honored to hold the Henssler Financial Endowed Chair, as it recognizes a group that has been so supportive of Kennesaw State for many years,” Tutterow said.
Tutterow has held faculty and administrative appointments at West Virginia University, Georgia State University and Mercer University. He has served as a consultant on financial economics and statistical modeling for Fortune 500 companies and other corporate clients, and has provided expert testimony on economic, financial and statistical matters in state and federal court, as well as before the Georgia General Assembly and the Georgia Public Service Commission.
He holds an M.A. and Ph.D. in Economics from Georgia State University.
