In Memoriam: Skip Beebe, College of Management
M.J. “Skip” Beebe, an alumnus of and professor in the College of Management, died unexpectedly on Nov. 7.
Beebe, who joined the college faculty in 2009, served as the Robert H. Ledbetter Sr. Professor of the Practice of Real Estate Development.
“In a fairly short time, he touched the lives of many students who might follow his example as a leader in the real estate field,” said College of Management Dean Steve Salbu. “He played an invaluable role in helping take the college’s real-estate course offerings to the next level of educational excellence.”
After graduating from Georgia Tech with a degree in industrial management in 1966, Skip worked for a few years in banking before starting his career in real estate.
When Beebe joined the college faculty in 2009, he said he was attracted to the opportunity because of his thirst to give back to Tech and develop leaders focused on building a better future.
Memorial contributions in Beebe’s honor can be made to the Georgia Tech Foundation and the Marist School.
