Georgia case law:
A title such as “sec.” or “CEO” signed on a guaranty is a mere word of description and the signor remains personally liable. See O.C.G.A. § 10-6-86; Upshaw v. Southern Wholesale Flooring Co., 197 Ga. App. 511, 398 S.E.2d 749 (1990); Keane v. Annice Heygood Trevitt Support Trust, 285 Ga. App. 155, 645 S.E.2d 641 (2007). In Upshaw, the appellant placed the abbreviation “Sec.” immediately after her signature. The court found this to be merely descriptive as the contract was unambiguous that she was signing in her personal capacity. Likewise, in Keane, the appellant claims he signed “CEO” after his name although it was unreadable. The court dismissed this argument as “there is nothing in the language of the guaranty to suggest that Keane was entering the obligation as a corporate officer.” Id.
