Maker of the VBA Business of the Year Award
We have been creating and engraving glass awards for 40 years.
Lillie Glassblowers is a father and son glassblowing studio based in Smyrna Georgia who creates beautiful hand blown works of art and engraved-glass awards on a daily basis. Don Lillie acts as the company patriarch, presiding over basic operations. But Thom has the most enviable position being (for lack of a better term) genius in residence. His job is producing phenomenal amounts of salable works in sheer numbers in addition to drafting the design of some of the most unusual and unique hand blown glass art never before seen. Thom Lillie could be found anywhere in Atlanta, conferring with a client, rushing a delivery, stopping by the studio to brainstorm, or possibly chatting with one of the stream of fascinating people who stop by the studio and are enthralled by the whirlwind inside. Thom’s father Don described the work environment best saying “If you get bored in our group, you would get bored in the middle of a tornado.” Thom and Don have produced some amazing art pieces that truly capture his artistic passion.

Winner Announced for 2014 VBA Business of the Year
Named president of the Atlanta Braves on October 11, 2007, John
Schuerholz oversees all operations for the Braves franchise.
Schuerholz served 26 years as a general manager, from 1982 to
2007, including 17 as the Braves’ executive vice president and general manager from 1991 to 2007. Schuerholz came to the Braves from the Kansas City Royals in October of 1990, and before his promotion to president, he had the longest tenure with the same organization among all major league GMs.
Under his leadership and guidance, the Braves achieved unprecedented success, compiling the best record in baseball (1,594-1,092; .593) over those 17 seasons from 1991 to 2007. The Braves established an American professional sports record by winning 14 consecutive division titles from 1991 to 2005 (the 1994 season was not played to completion).
The Braves have won five National League pennants, one World Series, several organization of the year awards and have surpassed the 3,000,000 mark in home attendance six times since 1991. By finishing 101-61 in 2003, the Braves reached the century mark in victories for the fifth time in seven seasons and for the sixth time since 1993.
Schuerholz currently serves on the Major League Baseball’s Playing Rules Committee and is Co-Chairman of the Commissioner’s On-Field Committee.
