CALHOUN, Ga. -- Satya Tiwari, president of rugs and accessories manufacturer Surya, was recently recognized by Business to Business magazine during its recent 2012 Atlanta Top 25 Entrepreneurs awards ceremony.
Held on Nov. 7 in the ballroom of the city's Twelve Hotel, the annual event honored Atlanta's top individual entrepreneurs. Winners are selected for achievements toward innovative business development within their respective industries and local community.
Business to Business is produced by Business Leader, a company founded in 1989 that produces magazines, e-newsletters, websites, radio programming and a wide range of live events that reach out to more than 250,000 executives and key decision makers every month.
This marks Tiwari's second consecutive year for inclusion in the publication's list of entrepreneurs. His ranking has shifted from 17th to sixth in the organization's annual breakdown for his vision and the continuing growth of the Surya brand. Under his leadership since 2004, the company has experienced yearly double-digit growth - most recently expanding from $35 million to $55 million in the last year, according to a press release.
"I'm incredibly honored to be recognized by the Business Leader organization as a part of their list of 2012's Top 25 Entrepreneurs," Tiwari said. "I find myself in great company with the other Atlanta area business leaders included. This award inspires me to continue moving the Surya brand forward - exploring innovative new solutions to meet our customers' needs."
