In December 2022, an endowed scholarship in Samford University’s Brock School of Business was established in honor of Randy Freeman ’84, recently retired chief financial officer of Brasfield & Gorrie LLC.
Headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, Brasfield & Gorrie is one of the nation’s largest privately held construction firms, providing general contracting, design-build and construction management services to clients throughout the United States.
Freeman spent most of his career with Brasfield & Gorrie, joining the company in 1993 and becoming chief financial officer in 1995. During his tenure, the company’s annual revenues grew from $300 million to over $4 billion. His professional accomplishments, industry contributions and philanthropic efforts have positively impacted numerous organizations and contributed to the success of the company today.
He has served on Samford University’s Board of Overseers, as well as the Brock School of Business Dean’s Advisory Board. He and his wife, Lisa, are continuously involved in philanthropic efforts on behalf of Samford.
The Randall J. Freeman Endowed Scholarship will be awarded to a rising senior in Brock School of Business pursuing a business major who has maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. Preference will be given to either students from Etowah County, Alabama, or those pursuing a real estate concentration.
Samford is grateful for this partnership with Brasfield & Gorrie and the implications for generations of students pursuing real estate.
