Ted McAnally (January 14th, 1977) was born in Rising Hope Alabama. His father was co-founder of Discern, and the founder of McAnally Beer. When Ted was a year old his father purchased Forester Enterprises for $2,000,000. Ted's family was very well off growing up, but always spent a lot of money. Ted graduated as Valedictorian of the class of 1995. He had a crush on Darla Lancaster growing up, but she never had any interest in him. He took a job at his father's company after he finished high school, hoping one day to take over. He was never interested in Discern. In 1999 he finished college and was named VP of The McAnally Company. Unlike his siblings, he was responsible. He was also well liked. He dated Lisa Mills for a while, before the two broke up. His father retired in 2007, but Ted was not named President -- his older brother was. But then his father went to jail for Fraud. The board named him CEO of McAnally, and is trying to dig his family out of trouble. In the 6 years that he's been CEO he's managed to bring the company's stock (which at one time was $50/share) back from $12.50/share up to $30/share.
