Its affiliated products include the annual Small Business Guide, the annual Business Georgia publication, the website georgiatrend.com and the electronically delivered Georgia Trend Daily.
“Trend Publications is co-owned by Atlanta businessman Tom Cousins, of Nonami LLC and Young Publications, which is owned by Neely Young and Ben Young, who serve as Georgia Trend’s co-publishers. The Norcross, Ga.-based group has eight full-time employees and more than 30 freelance writers, photographers and graphic designers.
