George Q. Sewell — executive vice president, general counsel and secretary of The Facility Group, an engineering and construction company with operations throughout the U.S. and Europe — is well-known in Atlanta because of his service as the current Georgia chapter president of the Association of Corporate Counsel. Less well known is what Sewell jokingly refers to as his “checkered past.”

For instance, his colleagues at the monthly GC meetings — sharing meals at Maggiano’s Little Italy in Buckhead — may not know that he lived in the Saudi Arabian desert for three years while working as an in-house lawyer for a giant oil company. Or that he was unemployed for 10 months after a corporate buyout, and he gained income and experience by hiring himself out as a contract lawyer. And few probably know that he was once an Eagle Scout, or that he became a Boy Scouts of America leader and mentored both his sons to the rank of Eagle Scout.
