Ambassador Antonio Pierce Visits JLL

Education is not the only major factor to accessing careers – who you know also plays a major role. Through our commerce pillar, LEAD is dedicated to making sure our Ambassadors are connected to individuals of power and influence in Atlanta. Many thanks to John Hirsh for taking the time to meet with Ambassador Antonio Pierce this quarter. John and Antonio connected instantly through their love for baseball; John played at Woodward Academy. The topics for the meeting included baseball (Antonio and John are both 3rd basemen), race/racism, gentrification and how to make Atlanta better for all her citizens.
