Warren Averett’s Atlanta accounting office partnered with the University of Georgia’s (UGA) Alumni Association to celebrate the Bulldog 100 Class of 2022, the top 100 fastest-growing organizations that are owned by UGA alumni.
The Bulldog 100 celebrates the achievements of entrepreneurs, helps business owners expand their Bulldog network and inspires change-makers to pursue greatness.
Warren Averett has been instrumental in making sure that the Bulldog 100’s companies are verified every year since 2009, when retired Office Managing Member and UGA alumnus John Shurley helped create the verification process that would help determine each year’s class of fastest-growing Bulldog businesses.
The Bulldog 100 criteria is strict and only considers businesses that have been in business for at least five years, have verifiable revenues of $100,000 or more and operate in a manner that stays true to the values and image of UGA. Through the hard work of the firm’s Atlanta advisors and CPAs, all Bulldog 100 nominees’ financials are verified and the top 100 fastest growing businesses are determined and ranked.
The 13th annual Bulldog 100 celebration was held on February 5, 2022. Attendees enjoyed a meal while the top 100 was counted down. Some of our Warren Averett professionals were in attendance, led by David Crabtree, CPA, Member and Bulldog 100 champion. He presented key statistics and trends of the Bulldog 100 companies. Kim Hartsock, CPA, the Atlanta Office Managing Member, Ashley Noble, Director of Industry Marketing, and Jessica Story, CPA, a Senior Manager in the Audit Division, all posed for a picture with UGA’s mascot, Hairy Dawg.
“It’s an honor to partner with the UGA Alumni Association,” said David Crabtree, CPA, who took over as the champion of Warren Averett’s Bulldog 100 efforts when John Shurley retired. “This year’s event was an amazing experience, and we look forward to partnering/assisting with the Bulldog 100 Class of 2023 to celebrate another class of great businesses and entrepreneurs.”
