Athens, Ga. – FineLine Technologies, based in Norcross, GA, was honored on January 26, when the UGA Alumni Association announced the rankings of the 2013 Bulldog 100: Fastest Growing Bulldog Businesses at a celebration in Atlanta.
FineLine Technologies, helmed by 1983 UGA graduate Richard Stamper, ranks as this year’s 64th fastest growing Bulldog business. The firm specializes in ticketing and labeling solutions for retailers, brands and manufacturers worldwide.
“It is a great honor to be one of only six firms to be honored for the fourth consecutive year,” said Stamper.
To be considered for the program, an organization must have been in business for at least five years, had revenues of $100,000 or more for the calendar year, and be owned or operated by a former UGA student who owns at least 50% of company or be the CEO, President or Managing Partner. The program recognizes the fastest-growing businesses regardless of size by focusing on a three-year growth rate average.
More than 700 nominations were submitted for this year’s program. The class of 2013 includes companies ranging in all sizes and services, including agriculture, aircraft parts manufacturing, insurance, robotics, healthcare, and industrial gases, just to name a few.
Alumni Association Executive Director Deborah Dietzler said the Bulldog 100 celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit of UGA graduates. “The annual celebration is our most well-attended event of the year, as the unveiling of the rankings makes for an exciting evening,” Dietzler said.
