Sangster is currently the senior managing director at CBRE Consulting, a nationally recognized business location and site selection firm. In this role, he leads a consulting team that helps clients find "best fit" locations for corporate headquarters relocations, customer care operations, manufacturing, distribution, and research and development sites, resulting in investments of more than $3 billion and more than 7,000 jobs created.

The move to Georgia Power is a homecoming of sorts; Sangster began his career at Georgia Power as a co-op student in 1977. While at Georgia Power, he held full-time positions in Power Supply Engineering, Procurement, Training and Educational Services, and Southern Company College. He also served as a Southern Company loaned executive to the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games in the mid-1990s.

"Growing the state's economy and attracting new jobs and investment has never been more important. Jonathan's broad-based experience makes him a valuable addition to our team as we strive to be a citizen wherever we serve," said Cherry. "Collaboration with our partners across the state is critical to successful economic development, and Jonathan is known for building strong partnerships. With his extensive network of consultants, corporate decision-makers and economic development professionals, Jonathan brings the global relationships that will help us build a brighter future for all Georgians."
