PDI Included in UGA Alumni Association’s Bulldog 100 List

Friday, November 19th, 2021

PDI, based in Alpharetta, GA, has been named to the University of Georgia Alumni Association’s 2022 Bulldog 100, a list of the 100 fastest-growing businesses owned or operated by UGA alumni. UGA received 367 nominations for the 2022 list. 

“We are excited and proud to have made the Bulldog 100 list again for the third consecutive year! It’s also an honor to share this distinction with so many other deserving companies,” said PDI CEO, honoree, and UGA graduate, Jimmy Frangis. “It is my distinct honor to represent an organization powered by a fiercely dedicated team (whether they want to admit it or not, they all have the Dawg spirit)—and our valued customers and partners who inspire us to drive toward the success this award represents.” 

During the last decade, PDI has significantly expanded its solutions portfolio and global reach by partnering with our customers to drive consumer engagement, optimize enterprise productivity, and secure their networks. 

The 2022 Bulldog 100 celebrates organizations from over two dozen industries, including agriculture, real estate, health care, nonprofits, and software. Of the 100 businesses, 88 are located within the state of Georgia. In total, three countries and nine U.S. states are represented in this year’s Bulldog 100. 

Each year, Bulldog 100 applicants are measured by their business’ compounded annual growth rate during a three-year period. The 2022 Bulldog 100 list is based on submitted financial information for 2018-2020. The Atlanta office of Warren Averett CPAs and Advisors, a Bulldog 100 partner since the program began in 2009, verified the information submitted by each company. 

The UGA Alumni Association will host the annual Bulldog 100 Celebration on February 5, 2022, to celebrate these alumni business leaders and count down the ranked list to ultimately reveal the No. 1 fastest-growing business. 

“These alumni demonstrate the value of a degree from UGA, and we are proud to recognize them for all they have achieved as leaders and entrepreneurs,” said Meredith Gurley Johnson, executive director of the UGA Alumni Association. “These individuals serve as an example to current and future alumni of what is possible when tenacity and innovation are utilized to provide better solutions and build stronger communities. We are excited to engage these alumni with the university to continue to inspire leadership among our community.”
