Ty Belcher Is Smyrna Business Person of Year

Ty Belcher, a District Sales Manager at Mutual of Omaha, was named Business Person of the Year for 2011 by the Smyrna Business Association.

The presentation was made at the June 2 lunch meeting of the SBA at the Smyrna Community Center.

“Every year the Smyrna Business Association selects one individual exemplifying community service and business savvy,” said Russ Lutterbie, SBA Past President in presenting the award.

Belcher has served on the SBA Board of Directors for four years, chairing the annual golf tournament and other special events. He is a resident of Smyrna and holds a bachelors degree from Penn State University and an MBA from Kennesaw State University. With more than 30 years of professional customer service, sales and account management experience, he is a Power Core Team Coordinator and has worked with Mutual of Omaha Insurance for five years.

“Since joining the SBA in 2008, his efforts have helped raise more than $10,000 for community projects through the association,” Lutterbie said.

“This is a unique association and I want to thank you for this honor,” Belcher said. “Everyone here is just regular people doing great things.”
