Macon Tolleson was one of Brosnan victims.
I don't recall if he quit or was fired, but he is one of the many capable men lost to the Southern due to Brosnan's whims.
The gory details are in the two-volume biography of DWB.

As for who ran the TAG, the TAG had a series of absentee owners. The investor Russell Sage, the railroad investor Newman Erb and the Coverdale syndicate. Only Siskin and earlier the Chambliss syndicate, were local. Of the last three presidents - or day to day managers- of TAG, two were former Southern executives. The last was former SOU ex. vp Macon Tollison.
