John Eaves talks to BBA Jan. 15; Awards Luncheon Jan. 22
Each year, the BBA honors five Buckhead businesses that fill a niche in the market, showcase excellent customer service, and demonstrate a commitment to the community. The finalists from which one will be named the Buckhead Business of the Year are: Bhojanic Restaurant, Flywheel, LegoLand, Morgan Kylee fashion boutique and Onward Reserve men’s clothing store.
During the Annual Luncheon, which will be held at the Marriott Buckhead Atlanta Hotel and will feature Spanx CEO Jan Singer as keynote speaker, the BBA will also be presenting three additional awards: Buckhead Business Beautification Award to Buckhead Atlanta; Bullish on Buckhead Award to David Cummings, owner and founder of Atlanta Tech Village, and Buckhead Entrepreneur of the Year to Jenny Levinson, owner of Souper Jenny.

In November, 2014, Eaves was elected to his third four-year term as chairman of the Fulton Commission receiving 63 percent of the popular vote. Since 2007, he has led the state’s most populous county, home to nearly one million residents and 14 municipalities including Atlanta.
Eaves’ career encompasses the academic and educational worlds, community service and business leadership, both domestically and abroad. He firmly believes that education is integral to the betterment of all Georgians.
His commitment to academic excellence is reflected in his longstanding support of the START Program, which encourages academic achievement and high school graduation, and the Fulton County Youth Commission, which under Eaves’ leadership established the Global Youth Leadership Program.
An unwavering advocate of active lifestyles and preventative healthcare, Eaves has been a champion for the Grady Hospital System and fought to ensure adequate annual funding.
