To recognize the 100 businesses and the 131 alumni who lead them, the UGA Alumni Association hosted the 2017 Bulldog 100 Celebration February 4 in Atlanta. The evening began with an exclusive reception for honorees hosted by FirstData, a global leader in commerce-enabling technology and solutions. This year’s keynote speaker was Debbie Storey, retired Executive Vice President of AT&T Mobility Customer Service and author of the book Don’t Downsize Your Dreams. Storey spoke about the importance of strong vision, adaptability and creative thinking in an ever-changing economic and technological landscape.

 

“The UGA Alumni Association is excited to honor our graduates who are founding and leading these prosperous enterprises,” Ruth Bartlett, president of the UGA Alumni Association board, said. “It is inspiring to see the influence these businesses have on our students. Student participation in Bulldog 100 allows our scholars a unique opportunity to network with these accomplished business leaders, and also to observe the best examples of success from people who once were where they are now.”
