    Two of Atlanta's top CEOs attend White House state dinner - Atlanta Business Chronicle

    Two of Atlanta's top CEOs attended the Sept. 20 White House state dinner for the prime minister of Australia.

    The list of more than 170 expected guests for the event honoring Scott Morrison included David Abney, chairman and CEO of United Parcel Service Inc. (NYSE: UPS), and Dan Cathy, CEO of Chick-fil-A Inc., and their wives, The Washington Post reported.

    And no, Chick-fil-A sandwiches were not served at the dinner. The menu's first course was Sunchoke Ravioli with Reggiano Cream and Shaved Summer Vegetables, followed by the main course of Dover Sole, roasted whole, then fileted and accented with Fennel Mousseline.

    United Parcel Service in early 2018 announced more than $12 billion in investments to expand the company’s Smart Logistics Network and significantly increase pension funding, attributing the move to the Trump administration's tax law changes through the Tax and Jobs Act.
