Outside of his career in law, Mr. Wayne also developed a keen interest in business. Recipient of a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree and a Master’s Degree in Business Marketing, Richard fully understands the importance of business matters in the global economy. Before his developing interest in law and business, Richard C. Wayne was a successful entrepreneur.
As a full time student at Oglethorpe University, Richard C. Wayne was a member of the Executive Round Table. The Executive Round Table was a business focused group addressing business and social issues in the Atlanta, Georgia area. Mr. Wayne continued to use his entrepreneurial and business skills to support himself during what would turn out to be an additional fourteen years of education at Georgia State University. Those endeavors included the development and construction of cabins in the North Georgia mountains and the creation and operation of an international marketing consulting firm. During this time, Richard C. Wayne also actively participated in the preparation and implementation of a marketing research project for the Oglethorpe University Art Gallery. He presented findings to the University President and Executive Administrators, all of which resulted in a grant of $700,000 to the Art Gallery.
Richard C. Wayne later employed his skills as a business marketing consultant to pay his way through several degrees at Georgia State University. Eventually, Richard C. Wayne & Associates, P.C., was born out of years of experience as an entrepreneur. Richard C. Wayne & Associates continues to be a client focused firm. The law firm represents corporate clients and small business owners in both transactional and civil litigation matters. During and after the financial crisis, the Wayne firm civilly prosecuted many mortgage fraud cases in the Georgia and Federal Courts.
