Former Georgia-Pacific chief Pete Correll has a new project, AJC staffer Scott Trubey reports.
Correll, a key player in the rehabilitation of Grady Memorial Hospital from critical to stable condition, is part of a coalition of heavy hitters devoted to saving a major undeveloped parcel on St. Simons Island, Trubey writes.
The turnaround of metro Atlanta’s trauma hospital has been no small chore— nor is it finished— and neither is his latest endeavor.
Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and his wife, Wendy, tapped Correll and his wife, Ada Lee, to help them preserve 600 acres known as Cannon’s Point, Trubey reports.
“It’s a massive expansion of the protected land on St. Simons Island,” said Correll, a native of nearby Brunswick. “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
The property includes the foundational remains of an 18th century plantation home and slave cabins, Trubey reports.
