Atlanta Refrigeration is a 2009 Pacesetter!

01 May, 2009

Atlanta Refrigeration Service was honored recently by the Atlanta Business Chronicle as one the fastest growing privately held companies in the Atlanta Metro area. The Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Pacesetter Award for 2009 highlights the private companies in the metro area that are growing even in a tough economy.

Brian Wagner and Dave Brautigan attended the breakfast award event that included keynote speaker Laura Ries. Mrs. Ries spoke to over 400 owners and executives about the importance of companies being focused on their brand and making sure they stood out from the competition. The event, held at the Cobb Galleria Centre, created a great opportunity to network with business owners that were growing at a fast rate like Atlanta Refrigeration Service.

The Annual Pacesetters Award acknowledges companies who have grown by at least 50% over the last two years. Atlanta Refrigeration Service's success is based upon its “painted picture”. This “painted picture” is a clear and decisive vision of what the company wants to look like, feel like, and act like three years down the road. With this clarity, management and employees have a path to follow and measure success. This forward-thinking has greatly increased the business, thereby earning it the 31st position on Atlanta Business Chronicle's 50 Fastest Growing Private Companies list.

In these times of great economic challenges, it is a great honor to be presented with this award.
