Port Richey, FL, May 14, 2010 --(PR.com
today announced that CEO Chad Dudeck is a finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2010 Award in Florida.
According to Ernst & Young LLP, the awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate extraordinary success in the areas of innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
Dudeck was selected as a finalist from nearly 100 nominations by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on Thursday, June 10 at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate.
“When we started Geo-Logical five years ago, awards like this had a dreamlike quality,” Dudeck said. “But today, I know it’s our quality people and our commitment to exceptional service that have earned us this recognition, and I’m grateful for the team spirit and effort that has carried us to this point in time.”
Geo-Logical provides sinkhole repair services to property owners using traditional and more progressive tools, chemicals and protocols common in the construction and sink hole repair industry.
According to Dudeck, what makes the company different is the high degree of customer satisfaction across all constituents – property owners, insurance claims adjusters and engineers – and Dudeck makes it his personal mission to ensure that his teams are living up to a high standard of customer service.
Dudeck and his business partner, Dan Stewart, are also committed to raising $1 million for charity this year through SendSavings™, a new technology-based fundraising program at their other co-owned company, Envala
, where Dudeck is acting CFO.
According to Envala CEO, Dan Stewart, SendSavings™
originated with business solutions and tools created for Geo-Logical that were later enhanced and repurposed, and are now used to build mutually beneficial relationships between charities and non-profits, their supporters, and advertisers.
“Chad and I believe this is a perfectly timed program for today’s economy,” Stewart said. “Everybody wins, and we hope to make a big difference for consumers, non-profits and businesses around the nation.”
