Last week, Atlanta lost one of its finest business and civic leaders, Brad Currey. Brad’s unwavering love for this City and its institutions was inspiring and meaningful to so many who observed and worked with him throughout his career. It seems he was a colleague, benefactor, and friend to just about everyone who had a cause or sought his advice and counsel. He was both interested and interesting…and relentless in his desire to get things done. 

In 2012, Central Atlanta Progress presented Brad with the Dan Sweat Award, which is given in memory of the past CAP president who led the organization and Downtown through tumultuous times in the business and political environment of the city’s growth. The full award presentation can be viewed here.  

Brad proudly accepted the award, stating “Dan Sweat was one of Mayor [Ivan] Allen’s principal hard workers who became a good friend of mine. He added, “I like being associated with anything with Dan Sweat’s name on it. He was a good citizen and I have tried to be a good citizen. He had a public spirit and got results. When the mayor told him to go do something he was on his feet and used whatever resources he had, including knees and elbows, to get things done. I have always respected him, and I have tried to emulate some of his qualities.”

We will all miss Brad dearly in the years ahead, but we will take great comfort in what he accomplished while among us.
