Vagn Nielson, corporate chef of Atlanta-based Proof of the Pudding, received the 2004 Community Leader Award last month from the Danish American Chamber of Commerce in Atlanta during its annual meeting last month, said Kent Fallesen, trade commissioner of the Danish Trade Commission here.

Mr. Fallesen told GlobalAtlanta that Mr. Nielson is the second recipient of the award, which was established in 2003 to recognize chamber members providing leadership in the Danish community.

The first recipient was Michael Dyre Hansen, president of DFDS Transport (US) Inc., which has 16 offices throughout the U.S. and is the second largest freight forwarder group in the Scandinavia/Baltic region. For more information, go to
