Since joining his family’s 57-year-old company in 2006, Sturdivant has applied the principles of his MBA from the Harvard Business School.

When he moved to the Jackson area, Sturdivant founded the Phoenix Club, an organization dedicated to instilling a civic focus in the Capital City’s up-and-coming professional leaders while raising funds for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Mississippi.

Active civically, Sturdivant is the president of the Fondren Renaissance Foundation, is on the University of Mississippi Alumni board of directors and is a Leadership Jackson graduate.

In his spare time, Sturdivant enjoys tea time with his two girls and wife, Grace Gore Sturdivant.
