The Atlanta chapter's award is numerically calculated based on sustained growth over a three-year period for companies headquartered in Georgia.

Cooley said, "Real credit goes to Pro View's leadership, Richard Reeves and Jerry Shockley, who are the driving forces in our success. Their entire careers are in poultry, sothe award is a tribute to them and all company associates."
