Athens, Ga. – Insurance executive Scott G.

Since joining McGriff in 1994, he has been instrumental in developing one of the largest energy/utility practice groups in the country.

Originally from Athens, Sink received his bachelor’s degree in risk management and insurance from the Terry College in 1984 and began his career with Virginia Power in Richmond, Va. From 1987-1994, Sink served in several capacities for Alexander & Alexander in its Baltimore, Md. and Washington, D.C. offices.
