Taylor English’s David Connell Recognized with the NAACP Living the Dream Award

ATLANTA, Jan. 16, 2018 – Taylor English Duma LLP is pleased to announce that David Connell, leader and principal of the recently launched, business consulting subsidiary Taylor English Decisions LLC, has been honored with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People’s (NAACP) Living the Dream Award for the Cobb County Branch. This annual recognition is given to those with demonstrated leadership and dedication to making Cobb County more diverse and inclusive. Connell received his award during a ceremony hosted on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in Atlanta.

“We are thankful to the NAACP for recognizing David’s many worthy accomplishments for the community of Cobb County,” said Marc Taylor, a founding partner of Taylor English. “It is an honor to have someone like David, who has shown such strong leadership both professionally and within the community, join our team to lead our recently launched business consulting practice.”

David Connell has served and chaired dozen of non-profit boards and initiatives throughout the community and has received numerous awards for his civic involvement. He has also helped the Cobb Chamber of Commerce and Southern Company achieve high rankings within their own industries.

At Taylor English, Connell works with businesses to improve efficiencies and management operations, to help companies come together as a unified team rather than operating as individual silos.

Connell previously served as chief executive officer and president of the Cobb Chamber of Commerce. He was active in the Chamber for 15 years – first as a board member, then as chairman and later as president and CEO. Prior to that, Connell completed a 40-year career at Southern Company.

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is the oldest, largest and strongest Civil Rights Organization in the United States. The principal objective of the NAACP is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of minority group citizens of the U.S. The NAACP is committed to achievement through non-violence and relies upon the press, the petition, the ballot and the courts, and is persistent in the use of legal and moral persuasion even in the face of overt and violent racial hostility.
