KPMG's Atlanta Office

The city's appealing sunbelt weather and proactive business climate have made it a hub of many of the world's largest, most admired companies including Coca Cola, Home Depot, United Parcel Service (UPS), Bellsouth, AT&T, CNN and Georgia-Pacific…to name a few. The 1996 Summer Olympics left an economic boom as its legacy, as well as many new high-tech sports and entertainment venues, such as Turner Field, home of the Atlanta Braves.
