At Protiviti, we pride ourselves on our creative, entrepreneurial spirit. Usually, this creative flair is limited to the business world – but not always.
Dave Haywood was hired as a consultant when he graduated from the University of Georgia in 2005. A few years later, he was excelling in his role within our Technology practice in the Atlanta office. He was also moonlighting in a band that was chasing big dreams. The demands of his dual careers increased over time, and Dave eventually made the difficult decision to leave Corporate America and focus full-time on being a rock star.
In this case, the choice paid off. Lady Antebellum released their self-titled debut album in 2008. When it went platinum, Dave returned to the Atlanta office to present a platinum record dedicated to Protiviti.
The record hangs proudly in the office, and I imagine it will be getting a polish after last night’s Grammy awards.
We congratulate a Protiviti alumnus on his continued success in the world of rock stardom!
