Bernie Reed, president and CEO of Reed’s Metals, was recently honored with the CEO award of Mississippi 2015 at the Old Capitol Inn in Jackson — an awards program through the Mississippi Business Journal.

“I’m so honored and humbled. We’ve come so far since we started in 1998 out of a little shed in Lawrence County. We used to cut metal back then with a hand shear, and now we have eight locations serving the Southeast U.S. I’m very grateful,” Reed said.
