James M. Hull College of Business names assistant dean

Kate Channell, director of marketing and media for Georgia Southern University’s Parker College of Business, has been named the assistant dean of the James M. Hull College of Business, effective Nov. 1.

As assistant dean, Channell will lead the external affairs efforts of the business college, including recruitment and alumni relations, as well as bolster relationships with the business community that will lead to student internships and graduate employment opportunities.

Channell, an Augusta native, is returning to Augusta University, where she worked for five years in University Advancement, first as the assistant director of alumni affairs for the Medical College of Georgia and later as a director of development for the MCG School of Dentistry (now The Dental College of Georgia) during its More than a Building campaign.

She left for Statesboro in 2011 to assist Georgia Southern University with its MBA programs and has led the marketing efforts of the Parker College of Business since 2014.

“We are very excited to have Kate join us at Hull. She brings a track record of outstanding success, experience, and knowledge in both the business school environment and the Augusta community that will serve the Hull brand incredibly well,” said Dr. Richard Franza, dean of Hull College.

Channell holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in marketing and an MBA with an international business concentration from Georgia Southern University.

She serves on the board for Professional Women of Statesboro and the Statesboro-Bulloch County Breast Cancer Foundation. She is also a graduate of Leadership Bulloch in 2015, Georgia Forward Young Gamechangers in 2017, and the Lynda Brannen Williamson Foundation Women’s Leadership Academy in 2019.
