The University of Georgia Foundation has hired Jason Bull as its first chief investment officer, effective April 9, 2018. Bull was formerly managing director for Emory University’s endowment. The liquid assets managed by the UGA Foundation have surpassed $1 billion, as more donors contribute each year in support of the University of Georgia. Bull will lead the team managing these assets and will be responsible for securing a favorable investment return, which is critical to the foundation’s continued success. The UGA Foundation provides more than $65 million annually, on average, to advance the University of Georgia’s missions of teaching, research and service.
