Nathaniel Wilson Massey, III, generally know as “Nat” is a Senior Manager with F&P Georgia. He was born in Columbus, Georgia and raised in Rome. He attended East Central where his lovely wife now teaches, East Rome Junior High, and East Rome High School.
Nat went on to study architecture at the University of Tennessee. He worked for Buckley and Associates as a lowly intern as they designed the Forum and adjacent government building. Realizing that architecture was not for him, Nat transferred to Berry with much joy in his heart where he studied Business Administration. Graduating in 1993, Nat followed his interest in manufacturing to work in Chattanooga for Rock Tenn Co.
He drug his poor loving wife around the Southeast working in various plants and then for a company named Kennametal. Following the birth of his second child in late 2003, Nat and Amy decided the best place to raise their young family was back in their home town, Rome.
Nat was lucky enough to get hired on at F&P Georgia. Starting as a supervisor on second shift in early 2004, Nat worked his way up to eventually attaining the Senior Manager title. Nat is currently working with the HR team. He is very proud of the work they have done to help make F&P a true “Manufacturing Family”.
