It may seem a little odd that a man with Kenneth Cutshaw's impressive r?sum? ended up as the general counsel of Church's Chicken. After all, it's not every day that a man who can fly a plane and has worked for three presidents elects to lead the legal department at a fast-food restaurant chain. But for Cutshaw, the position was the perfect fit.
This is just a small taste of what Cutshaw has accomplished during the past three decades: In 1982 he served as the senior counsel of the World's Fair in Tennessee. In 1985 he received appointments in the U.S. Department of Commerce under Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush. Today, he serves on the advisory commission for international economic policy under President George W. Bush. In 2000 the government of India asked Cutshaw to serve as its honorary consul, and today he is the only foreign lawyer who is a member of the Bar Association of India. He was a partner at Holland & Knight and also serves as a dean and co-owner of Georgian American University in Tbilisi, Georgia--the former Soviet bloc country's only J.D. program. Oh, and he also has gone on mountaineering expeditions on six continents.
