Baylor University Honors Texas Family BusinessNovember 15th, 2012 by DWM Magazine
DW Distribution, based in DeSoto, Texas, was honored with the “2012 Well-Managed Business Award” by Baylor University. DW and other category winners were recognized during an awards banquet on November 8 at the university.
The Texas Family Business of the Year awards program recognizes outstanding firms whose families demonstrate a commitment to each other and to business continuity, and who are responsive to the needs of their employees, communities and industries. Specifically, the Well-Managed Business Award is given to the successful family business, which demonstrates strong management techniques resulting in operational efficiency and effectiveness.
Accepting the award on DW’s behalf were co-founder Vernon Potter; vice chairman and CEO, Byron Potter; and president Nathan Potter. “We are very proud to be recognized for our successful business practices,” said Nathan Potter. “We have certainly faced our share of challenges over three generations, but we have remained focused on sound business principles and our resolve to help our employees, customers and vendors pursue their American Dream.”
