Dinah & Fred Gretsch (president and CFO of Savannah’s Gretsch Company respectively) were recently honored at the Georgia Family Business of the Year Awards 20th Anniversary gala. The event was held November 29 at the Cobb Galleria Center of the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly hotel in Atlanta, Georgia.
In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the awards, notable former honorees were invited to the gala to receive special recognition plaques. This included the Gretsches, who were the recipients of the Cox Century Award in 2007 as part of the Georgia Family Business of the Year program.
The Cox Century Award award recognizes companies that are one hundred years old or more. The Gretsch Company was chosen because of its 129-year history as a family-owned operation, its importance within the worldwide music industry, and its contributions to the Georgia business community. Since receiving the award the Gretsch Company has proudly displayed the Century Award logo on its business correspondence.
