Falcons executive earns honor

The Atlanta Falcons have earned a significant off-field honor.

Senior vice president and chief financial officer Greg Beadles was named CFO of the Year in the community service category by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

“We pride ourselves as being leaders in the community and this is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire organization,’’ Beadles said. “One of the hallmarks of our owner and chairman, Arthur Blank, is giving back to the community and it is a true honor for the Atlanta Falcons to be recognized for our community service.”

Beadles has been with the Falcons for 18 years, starting off as an intern in the finance department. He’s been an executive officer for 11 years.
