Terri Bunten Guthrie

Business Development

Advising clients has been a way of life for me since I began my career, even when that advice did not include the use of my services. This has led to long-term trusting relationships and ultimately more opportunities.

Terri’s commitment to Smith + Howard and the community is evidenced by her passion to serve others.

Terri joined Smith + Howard in 2021 and is a member of our business development team.

As an active citizen of Cobb County, Terri is a member of the Cobb County Chamber of Commerce and is a Chairman’s Circle Member. She is also a current member and past president of the Kiwanis Club of Marietta. Terri is active in many other organizations and associations in the Metro Atlanta area.

In 2014, Terri received the Marietta Citizen of the Year award. She and her husband reside in the Marietta area with their two American Shepherds. Terri has five children whose homes range from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to Costa Rica.

Terri loves to travel and hike and has combined the two hobbies by hiking in travel destinations that include Mts. Hood, Baker, Rainier, and Switzerland, Italy and France.
