Success Story



Scheller College of Business’ Marc Dash and Bill Todd Honored at 2018 White & Gold Honors Gala


The Georgia Tech Alumni Association has selected two Scheller College honorees for the 2018 Gold & White Honors Gala on January 25.  Marc Dash, AE 66, MS AE 68, and Bill Todd, IM 71, and will be conferred the highest award at the gala, The Joseph Mayo Pettit Distinguished Service Award. The award is given to Georgia Tech alumni who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and dedication to the Institute, and in Dash and Todd’s cases, the Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business.

Dash and Todd’s history with the Scheller College of Business comes as a culmination of their long and prolific professional career and their involvement with Georgia Tech. Both honorees excelled in business management as a result of their time at Georgia Tech and have both spent time teaching at Scheller College.

Marc Dash

Marc Dash will be honored at the 2018 Gold & White Honors Gala for his outstanding support of the Institute and the Alumni Association throughout his career. Beginning his journey to becoming a double jacket in in 1962, Dash worked tirelessly to earn his engineering degree not once but twice from Georgia Tech, eventually granting him a master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering in 1968. After leaving Tech, Dash went to work for NASA at the peak of the Apollo space missions. Knowing he had a penchant for business despite his successful career in engineering, Dash went on to become a partner of Goldman Sachs on Wall Street, from which he retired. Following his retirement, Dash returned to Georgia Tech to teach at the Scheller College of Business. His devotion to the College and to the Institute as a whole can be seen in his service as a trustee of the Georgia Tech Foundation for 22 years, and his commitment to philanthropy in which he and his wife Patty created the Dash Family Foundation.

Bill Todd

Bill Todd’s history at Georgia Tech began in 1966 while he was pursuing his undergraduate degree in management. Following his time at Georgia Tech, Todd received his MBA from Harvard University. After a long and prolific career in the healthcare industry and serving as president and CEO of the Georgia Cancer Coalition, Todd returned to his alma mater to serve as a professor of the practice at the Scheller College of Business. While at Tech, Todd has also served as emeritus board member of the Georgia Tech Foundation, past chair of the Alumni Association, and has been named to Georgia Trend’s “100 Most Powerful and Influential People in Georgia” for the past seven years. His widely acclaimed teaching style and deep admiration for his students are cited as just two of many reasons he has been selected for the highest honor bestowed by the Georgia Tech Alumni Association.

Marc Dash and Bill Todd are two of eight Georgia Tech alumni who will be honored at the Gala for their deep rooted commitment to the Institute.
