George W. Mamo has spent his professional career working to make the world a better place. His involvement with charitable and educational organizations as well as in development enterprises has taken him throughout the United States and around the world in a series of increasingly responsible executive positions. Early in his career, he served as director of a homeless shelter run by Central Atlanta Churches, an interracial coalition. From 1985–96 he served as vice president for administration of Feed the Children, an international relief organization. He was thrust into the world spotlight in 1995 when he coordinated the work of some 5,000 volunteers and the delivery of relief supplies in the aftermath of the federal building bombing in Oklahoma City, where Feed the Children is headquartered. He subsequently served as a senior assistant at the Winrock International Institute of Agricultural Development and as chief operating officer and vice president of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews. A humanitarian and true citizen of the world, his accomplishments and spirit of selfless service are impeccable.
