Next Generation Becomes Today’s Leader
Holmes Bell Assumes Leadership; Gus Bell Becomes Chairman Emeritus for Hussey Gay Bell.
On Jan. 1, the purchase was complete and Holmes Bell became CEO and chairman of all Hussey Gay Bell companies. That includes Hussey Gay Bell Inc. of Georgia, Hussey Gay Bell Inc. of South Carolina, Hussey Gay Bell Environmental, Hussey Gay Bell, Hussey Gay Bell Surveyors LLC and Hussey Gay Bell Arabia LLC.
With more than 150 professional engineers, architects and surveyors, the Hussey Gay Bell companies have offices in Savannah and Gaineville, Ga., Charleston and Columbia, S.C., and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The younger Bell is quick to point out that his father will remain active with the companies as chairman emeritus and will focus his attention on business development, particularly in South Carolina.
“As a native of South Carolina and graduate of the Citadel, Dad has a lifetime of contacts,” Bell said. “This will free him up to pursue new projects.”
