Grady College is pleased to announce that eight alumni representing six businesses are represented in this year’s Bulldog 100. The Bulldog 100 is a list coordinated by the University of Georgia Alumni Association of fastest-growing businesses owned or operated by UGA alumni.

Congratulations to the following Grady alumni who will be recognized for their leadership, commitment to community and entrepreneurial spirit:

  • Glenn Carroll (ABJ ’76), Carroll Media Services
  • Marc Gorlin (ABJ ’95), Kabbage and Roadie
  • Katherine Mason (ABJ ’12) and Jennifer McKissick (ABJ ’12), SculptHouse
  • Brittany Thoms (ABJ ’04), See.Spark.Go
  • Kevin Planovsky (ABJ ’05), Matt Griffin (BBA ’05, MA ’12) and Michael Lentz (ABJ ’06), Vert.

More than 533 nominations were submitted for the 2020 list. A complete list of winners can be found on the UGA Alumni Association website.

The honorees will be recognized in a ceremony on Feb. 8, 2020, in Athens.

Grady alumni have made top spots twice in recent years. Vert Mobile was named the second fastest-growing business for the 2013 awards (announced in February 2014), and Kabbage, Inc., won the top stop for the 2014 awards (announced in February 2015).

Applicants were measured by their business’s compounded annual growth rate during a three-year period. The Atlanta office of Warren Averett CPAs and Advisors, a Bulldog 100 partner since the program began in 2009, verified the information submitted by each company.
