Today, DLP Real Estate Capital is pleased to announce that Don Wenner, Founder and CEO, has been named as an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2020 Florida Award Finalist.   

Now in its 34th year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program honors entrepreneurial business leaders whose ambitions deliver innovation, growth, and prosperity as they build and sustain successful businesses that transform our world. Wenner was selected as one of 21 finalists from nearly 60 nominations by a panel of independent judges.

Award winners will be announced through a special virtual event on Oct. 8, 2020 and will join a lifelong community of esteemed Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world. This year, unstoppable entrepreneurs who have provided extraordinary support for their communities, employees, and others during the COVID-19 crisis will also be recognized for their courage, resilience and ingenuity.

Wenner commented, “I am truly grateful for being named as an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2020 Florida Award Finalist. My team of nearly 400 hardworking and dedicated individuals truly deserve this recognition. We conduct business with a clear purpose and direction, share the same set of values, and use a very disciplined operating system (the DLP Elite Execution System). We accomplish more in 90 days than our competitors do all year (even through COVID), because of our dedication to the 20-mile march; putting forth the same effort day in day out, year after year.”

Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive award programs for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The nominees are evaluated based on six criteria, including overcoming adversity; financial performance; societal impact and commitment to building a values-based company; innovation; and talent management. Since its launch, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.

Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, to be announced in November during a virtual awards gala. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Award in June 2021.
