Yancey Wire and Cable named to Bulldog 100

Yancey Wire & Cable was named as the 81st fastest-growing business owned or operated by a University of Georgia graduate during the 2014 Bulldog 100 Celebration.

The company, founded by 1987 UGA alumnus and Coweta resident Richard Yancey, specializes in speciality electrical wire and cable.

“It’s an honor to be chosen to the 2014 Bulldog 100,” Yancey said. “Especially since Yancey Wire & Cable is celebrating our 15th year and still growing. That’s a lot of elbow grease!”

“A lot of hard work, and dedicated employees, helped grow the business over the last few years,” he said.

The Bulldog 100, coordinated by the UGA Alumni Association, recognizes the 100 fastest growing businesses owned or operated by UGA alumni. More than 800 nominations were received for the 2014 Bulldog 100.

The 2014 Bulldog 100 celebration was held Jan. 25 at the Marriott Marquis in downtown Atlanta. Fran Tarkenton, UGA grad, Hall of Fame quarterback and founder of Smallbizclub.com, was the keynote speaker.

Stemberger, Cummins named Legal Elite

William J. Stemberger Jr. and D. Scott Cummins, of the Newnan law firm Stemberger & Cummins, P.C. were recently recognized as top attorneys in Georgia by “Georgia Trend” magazine.

Stemberger and Cummins were named to the magazine’s annual list of Legal Elite. The list of top lawyers is voted on by attorneys licensed to practice in the state and familiar with the lawyers’ work.

Stemberger, a former prosecutor, attributes the firm’s success in part to the team effort put forth on the firm’s cases. “Not only do Scott and I bring a combined 55-plus years of trial experience, but we also have a great support staff,” he said. "Being able to work as a team on challenging legal and factual issues helps ensure that our clients have quality representation at every phase of their legal proceeding.”

A former municipal court judge and prosecutor, Cummins now represents individuals and families in personal injury and criminal defense matters. Cummins took the recognition by one of Georgia’s largest business publications as an opportunity to reflect on the importance of doing quality legal work. “As attorneys, we are in a position to significantly impact the lives of clients for many years into the future,” he said. “It’s nice to be recognized for the work you’ve done, and it’s a reminder that we need to continue to do as much as possible to produce successful outcomes in our cases.”

Stemberger & Cummins, P.C. represents individuals and families in car, truck, and motorcycle accident cases, as well as those facing felony and misdemeanor charges.
