Billy Payne’s Olympian Triumph

Thursday, April 26, 2018

The story of Atlanta’s emergence as an international city began, as unlikely triumphs often do, with one man’s improbable dream. And yet, William Porter “Billy” Payne (J.D.'73)  was not known as a dreamer. In fact, before 1987—when he resolved to bring the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games to Atlanta, in defiance of all odds—the then-middle-aged real estate lawyer wasn’t widely known at all. But Payne has become one of the era’s most celebrated Georgians thanks to his sheer determination and a unique ability to unite others in pursuit of his long-shot ambition. Payne’s success in winning the Olympic bid and preparing the city for the games effectively put Atlanta on the global map and became the catalyst for growth in tourism, private investment and international prominence that continues to this day.
