B.S., Dallas Baptist University
Alex C. Perry was named the University of Georgia School of Law's director of alumni relations, annual giving and stewardship in 2020. In this role, he cultivates relationships with graduates and friends as well as seeks private support, both of which will ensure a strong future for the law school. When he joined the school in 2017, his primary responsibility was increasing annual gifts to the Law School Fund.
Most recently, Perry worked simultaneously as a realtor for Rogers Healy & Associates in Dallas and as president of Perry Productions & Management Group in Frisco, Texas. As president, he managed a full-service consulting and event management production company that specialized in the nonprofit sector. He produced large-scale theatrical productions, community fundraising events and other charitable events. Previously, Perry worked as a campaign associate for the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas and supported the corporate relationship manager in stewarding a portfolio of law firms to give to the UWMD in order to achieve the organization's $75 million fundraising goal.
Prior to those roles, Perry was the music and worship chief of staff at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas. There, he was the primary counselor to the worship pastor, who leads three teams on matters of fundraising, HR, budgets, event programming and special projects. Additionally, he managed and developed key internal and external donor and constituency relationships. Previously, Perry was the director of the school of Fine Arts at Prestonwood Baptist Church. He also served as the assistant to the marketing director at Dallas Baptist University from 2006 to 2008.
Although not a UGA graduate, Perry is as close to being an alumnus as one can get without a diploma. A native of Columbus, Georgia, the majority of his family are Dawgs (his mother and father are 1983 graduates) and all of them now scattered throughout the state. Perry earned his bachelor's degree in music business from Dallas Baptist University in 2008.
