Several areas of the country are represented, including companies from as far north as New York and as far west as California.

The Bulldog 100 honorees will be celebrated Jan. 30 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. The evening will begin with a reception, followed by dinner and the awards ceremony. Registration, which is open to the public, will be available by mid-December at

The awards ceremony will feature a keynote address by Jeff Dunn, CEO and president of C-Fresh, a division of Campbell Soup Company that includes Bolthouse Farms, Campbell’s retail fresh soup unit, and Garden Fresh Gourmet. Dunn earned a bachelor’s degree in 1980 from UGA’s Terry College of Business.

The consumer strategist has helped grow companies large and small through brand and marketing innovation. He honed his marketing skills during two decades at Coca-Cola, where he oversaw all business in North and South America.

Following Dunn’s remarks, members of the Student Alumni Council will lead the highlight of the evening—the release of the final rankings and countdown of the 2016 Bulldog 100.

“The Bulldog 100 Celebration is one of the most important events on UGA’s calendar, and it is an inspiring way to kick off the New Year,” said Meredith Gurley Johnson, UGA’s executive director of alumni relations. “The excitement is palpable during this event and I always leave invigorated by the caliber of those in attendance. They are living examples of the quality of a UGA education.”
