Athens, Ga. - The University of Georgia Alumni Association announces the 2013 class of the Bulldog 100. The program annually recognizes the fastest growing businesses that are owned or operated by UGA graduates. More than 700 nominations were submitted.

The list includes businesses of all sizes and services from major agribusiness, telecommunication, and wealth management firms to interior design, photography, and fitness companies. Several areas of the country are represented, including companies from as far north as New Jersey and as far west as Utah. Atlanta CPA firm Gifford Hillegass & Ingwersen, LLP verified the information submitted by each company and ranked the businesses based on a compounded annual growth rate during a three-year period.

UGA alumni and friends are invited to celebrate the 2013 Bulldog 100 honorees at a banquet at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis on Jan. 26. The evening will begin with a reception, followed by dinner and the awards ceremony. The event will feature a keynote address by A.D. "Pete" Correll. A 1963 UGA graduate, Correll currently serves as chairman of Atlanta Equity and is chairman emeritus of the Georgia-Pacific Corporation. Following his remarks, members of the Student Alumni Council will lead attendees to the highlight of the evening-the release of the final rankings and countdown of the 2013 Bulldog 100.

Alumni Association Executive Director Deborah Dietzler said the Bulldog 100 celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit of UGA graduates. "The annual celebration is our most well-attended event of the year, as the unveiling of the rankings makes for an exciting evening," Dietzler said.
