Will Payne (Class of 2022) focuses on bringing business opportunity to Southwest Virginia. Will has deep roots in politics, and we discuss the steps that brought him to pursue an MBA, what he loves about his current work in economic development and how Darden has offered him an opportunity to be the student he always wanted to be. We also talk about Appalachian Grains, his craft grain business that has supplies grains to distilleries and breweries across the Commonwealth, including Charlottesville’s own Three Notch’d Brewery.
