ATHENS, Ga. - Feb. 19, 2019 - PRLog -- Smith Planning Group was recognized as the No. 66 fastest-growing business owned or operated by a University of Georgia graduate during the tenth annual Bulldog 100 Celebration on Jan. 26 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta. This is the third year that Smith Planning Group has been recognized by the Bulldog 100 program.

Smith Planning Group is led by UGA graduates Bob Smith and Edward Lane. Bob is responsible for a wide range of domestic and international projects including town planning, urban design, mixed-use developments, and campus planning. Ed Lane has over a decade of experience in the design and management of civil engineering projects.

The Bulldog 100, coordinated by the UGA Alumni Association, recognizes the 100 fastest-growing businesses owned or operated by UGA graduates.

The Atlanta office of Warren Averett CPAs and Advisors partnered with the UGA Alumni Association to review nominated businesses' financial records to determine the ranked list. Nominations were accepted between February and May 2018. Approximately 500 nominations were received for the 2019 Bulldog 100. Each organization must have been in business since 2017, experienced revenues in excess of $100,000 for the calendar year 2018, and be owned or operated by a former UGA student who owns at least 50 percent of the company or is the CEO, president or managing partner.

The Bulldog 100 recognizes the fastest-growing businesses regardless of size by focusing on a three-year compounded annual growth rate. The average compounded annual growth rate for this year's Bulldog 100 businesses was 62 percent, a record high.

"This year, we celebrated a decade of recognizing more than 650 business leaders and the economic impact their businesses have had on our state and country. The Bulldog 100 program continues to show both the power of small business as an economic driver as well as the amazing accomplishments of UGA alumni," said Meredith Gurley Johnson, executive director of the UGA Alumni Association. "We are proud to celebrate their achievements."
