Full Media Named 34th Fastest Growing Business In 2014 Bulldog 100 Celebration

Thursday, February 06, 2014

Full Media was recognized as the No. 34 fastest growing business owned or operated by a University of Georgia graduate during the 2014 Bulldog 100 Celebration. Full Media is entering 2014 with continued growth top of mind having already opened three offices located in Gainesville, Ga.; Chattanooga; and Greenville, S.C.

Full Media CEO Kris Nordholz sees this recognition as a sign that the company is accomplishing its main objective. He said, “I hope that being recognized for our growth simply means that we are making a positive impact on more and more people and in the communities where we serve. Every new team member that joins Full Media is another person and their family that we can hopefully impact in a positive way. Each new client that gives us the opportunity to work with them is another group of people that we hope to impact positively as well.”

The 2014 Bulldog 100 Celebration recognized 100 businesses and 139 University of Georgia alumni who lead highly successful companies. Each year, UGA sponsors the Bulldog 100 to identify and award these businesses based on a specific list of credentials including fast business growth as well as operations that are consistent with the values and image of UGA, including upholding the Pillars of the Arch, which are wisdom, justice and moderation. Over 800 nominations were received for this year’s Bulldog 100 and included companies of all sizes spanning industries including advertising, staffing, real estate, pest control and mixed martial arts.

“Internet marketing is everything but static,” said Full Media Executive VP, Kevin West. “We work every day to grow with the industry and stay ahead of the latest trends in website development.  Every member of our team is constantly learning, growing and adapting to the nature of the industry.” 

Mr. Nordholz and Mr. West are both University of Georgia alumnus. “We regularly remind ourselves why we started this company. We opened the doors of Full Media to impact our world in a positive way, both big and small,” Mr. Nordholz said. “We are humbled by this recognition.”
