Chattanooga Whiskey and FreightWaves were named as this year’s recipients at an event on Wednesday.

“These two companies are very different and represent two very different industries,” said Dan Gilmore, “Spirit of Innovation Award” Committee Chair. “They both exemplify the true spirit of innovation this award recognizes and celebrates. Chattanooga and the surrounding area are home to a diverse range of driven and innovative people and organizations.
