Southern Business Systems Joins Patterson Pope Southern Business Systems of Atlanta has joined with Charlotte-based Patterson Pope to create one company that will better serve businesses and organizations in Georgia. This move came after Patterson Pope took over sales territories in the state that once was served by the Walter Hopkins Company, with Southern Business Systems working as a sub-dealer for a period of time.

ATLANTA, Dec. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Patterson Pope has announced a merger with Southern Business Systems to help the two companies better serve clients in Georgia. Through this joint venture, the two companies have become one. Southern Business Systems brought 13 employees to the mix, and Patterson Pope retained all of them, bringing the total number of employees supporting their operations in the region to 19.

Patterson Pope President Denny Hammack indicated that they had long admired Southern Business Systems. "I can't imagine a better fit," he said. "We are thrilled to have Southern Business Systems as part of our team."

Elizabeth Butler, Southern Business Systems former president, indicated her enthusiasm for the merger. "It's a great scenario for our team and those we serve," she said. Butler now serves as a Regional Sales Manager for Patterson Pope. She indicated that the combination allowed the team to provide a strong resource for clients in the area.

The merger comes after 11 months of working together. Hammack felt that the two companies had been serving the people of the area well as separate entities, but that together they would be able to accomplish even more.
