Steve Selig to receive 2014 Four Pillar Award

May 9, 2014 News

The Council for Quality Growth has tapped real estate businessman Steve Selig as the recipient of the 2014 Four Pillar Award.

The award is one of the most prestigious annual recognitions given to leaders who have had a major impact on the Atlanta region – from Tom Cousins to Arthur Blank to Shirley Franklin to Johnny Isakson to John Portman.
“It reads like a Who’s Who. These are all people I’ve looked up to and learned from,” Selig said in an interview from his company’s offices on Spring Street. “It’s overwhelming.”
Selig, however, credited his grandfather, his uncle, his father and his mother for having the most influence on his life and career.
His grandfather, Ben Massell, started the business in 1918. When he died, half the business was left to Steve Selig’s uncle — Ben Massell Jr. — and his mother — Caroline Massell Selig. His father — Simon Stephen “Slick” Selig — came from a family that had been in the chemical business. That company – Selig Chemicals – was sold to National Service Industries, and Slick Selig joined his brother-in-law in the real estate business.
