Paul Varga (Pro career)
Tennis

Paul Varga

Paul Varga was a leader from the moment he set foot on campus in 1981. Kentucky was just a fledgling men's tennis program back then, but Varga -- who held the title as the winningest player in school history for 27 years -- helped build a winner alongside head coach Dennis Emery and a talented group of teammates. The leadership traits he developed as an athlete served him well after college, as Varga went to work for Brown-Forman in his hometown of Louisville once he completed his MBA at Purdue. Within 14 years, he was named Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. In 2018, after a distinguished 31-year career with a company that employs thousands worldwide, Varga retired as CEO and Chairman of Brown-Forman.
