Deborah Millikan Scott
Millikan has more than 25 years experience with a demonstrated history of working in the entertainment industry. She is skilled in Event development and Management, Marketing and Brand development with a knack for creating awareness through Live Productions.
Deborah began her career designing, planning and producing corporate events in the Atlanta market. The fundraising began with the USO and led to planning a parade and rally for our troops, commemorating ‘Operation Desert Storm’. The size and scope of the event created such a buzz that Georgia Tech contacted Deborah with a request to bring the Clayton County event to Bobby Dodd Stadium because the coveted entertainers and speakers had already been pre-booked by Millikan.
President George H. Bush formally acknowledged the event by sending a letter from the White House to the Clayton County Parade of Patriots including Deborah's name in the message. Millikan acquired sponsorship for the filming of the event and sent videos to soldiers that remained in Kuwait.
Millikan continued to develop, market and manage large productions such as concerts and festivals as well as manage and book recording artists. Deborah credits her mentor Merle Kilgore (Hank Williams Jr's manager) for helping her navigate the industry waters.
Maintaining a passion for community involvement, Millikan was selected by the President of Chick-fil-A, Jimmy Collins, to serve as Director of Development for a private school in Georgia. Deborah was tasked with creating a capital campaign that raised millions of dollars to build a school for children diagnosed as ADD or ADHD. A recent letter from the retired president of Chick-fil-A pointed out to Millikan that she "took them where they needed to go," and because of this a much larger number of children have received the help they needed. The campaign was a huge success and the beautiful facility was built in Fairburn, Georgia.
Community involvement has brought Deborah into the areas of tourism and history. She is the administrator and director of marketing for the Bechtler Heritage Center and the Bechtler Mint Historic Park in Rutherfordton, North Carolina. Millikan is expanding and leading the North Carolina Gold Trail membership, a historical destination trail made up of six counties but will eventually connect all 33 counties in North Carolina that share a gold history. Millikan also manages the Official North Carolina Gold Festival held annually in Old Fort, North Carolina.
The festival will mark it's 16th year the first Saturday in June, 2019. Deborah's experience and success in building brands within small town communities, the corporate world and the music industry is a sound platform from which your story can be told. Lets begin to build your brand today.
