In discussing the recent recession in the economy, Harrell has observed a rise in job opportunities. According to Harrell, "One of the great things about Atlanta - it is a huge growth opportunity in varied industries, and we have truly seen an uptick in the job opportunities that you see out there."
Keith Radford is an Atlanta native who attended Harvard and majored in Economics in 2002. He spent several years in the financial services industry in New York and Amsterdam before attending business school at Kellogg at Northwestern.

Uber operates on a Request from Anywhere at Any Time system. Clients can download Uber's app onto an iPhone or Android or place a request on m.uber.com, set their pickup location on the map, and Uber will dispatch the nearest driver to pick the client up. There will also be a text sent with the estimated arrival time. When the car arrives, the client gets another text. After the ride, Uber will automatically charge the credit card placed on file. There's no need to hand the driver any payment, and the tip is included.
Known for their high-end car service, Radford announced that Uber has now rolled out a new service - uberX. According to Radford, "uberX is our low-cost option that offers the same great Uber quality and professional drivers you’re used to at taxi prices." uberX is mostly a mix of hybrid and mid-range cars in a variety of styles with seating for up to four people.
