Atlas Thrives As 2015 Business of the Year
At the Annual Meeting and Dinner held by the Southwest Indiana Chamber of Commerce in September, Atlas World Group was named the Norman P. Wagner Business of the Year.
Nearly 650 guests gathered to celebrate a century of commerce in Evansville and the surrounding region. Atlas, who has been a part of the Southwestern Indiana business community for 55 years, was in the company of many dynamic businesses that call Evansville home.
The Norman P. Wagner Business of the Year award honors companies that create wealth by generating well-paying jobs and build capital investment in Southwest Indiana. Recipients are also active participants in the community and reflect a profound regard for citizenship and leadership that ultimately improves the overall quality of life in the area.
“To be recognized for making a lasting difference in the Evansville community is humbling,” said Glen Dunkerson, Chairman & CEO of Atlas World Group. “Even with our global presence and capabilities, Evansville is home to our corporate headquarters and the majority of our employees. We are committed to supporting the community into the future, and we are beyond grateful for this distinguished honor.”
