Comments: Chattem may be owned by a French conglomerate these days, but the company’s roots are firmly planted in the fertile soil of Tennessee. Company CEO Zan Guerry, whose tennis career includes more than 25 national championships in singles and doubles, was elected to the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame earlier this year. Guerry has made “outstanding contributions” in athletics to the state.

This past year, Chattem dedicated its manufacturing facilities on Broad Street in Chattanooga to B. Derril Pitts, former vice president of operations, who retired in 2011.
