Weare Gratwick stated, “It has been a great experience building the Calumet brand in the Peachtree Corners/Gwinnett/Atlanta market.   I look forward to continuing to help small to mid-sized business owners achieve their goals.    Even though most of my time is spent out in my clients’ office, it will be valuable to have this presence in the Peachtree Corners market.”
