ONE PLUS ONE EQUALS SUCCESS
To begin their “retirement” years, Susan and Dill became the Co-Deans of the Stafford School of Business at Abraham Baldwin Agriculture College in Tifton, GA, near Susan’s home town. They have always wanted to give back. They started giving back early in their life together by establishing their global headquarters of ignition in Osierfield, GA. One of their biggest thrills was providing the opportunity for young people from this small town to explore the world.
Academia has been a part of Susan and Dill’s life since they met. For more than seven years, they volunteered every Friday in Athens, GA, at the University of Georgia mentoring the Terry College Business students and helping them to explore their business dreams. Our proudest moments were seeing these young people begin promising careers and come back a few years later to share stories of their successes.
Throughout the years, Susan and Dill have founded several companies, primarily to assist young people in fulfilling their dreams. It all began in 1997 with the founding of McWhorter Driscoll, LLC, a creative business solutions company. This forward-thinking business model went on to establish additional companies, such as The Event Department (Germany), ignition Europe (England), WeGotGear, Click It, Hutto Fabrication, Relay of Heroes, McWhorter Driscoll Farms, Fitzgerald Aviation, plus additional student-led startups.
