Great news! We're honored to announce that we have received the Family Business Achievement Award from Smart Business for the second year. 🔥
This award recognizes organizations that best demonstrate a strong commitment to both business and family and are engaged in innovative business practices designed to enhance the family business dynamic. We will be honored at the upcoming Family Business Conference on September 23rd and featured in a special editorial report in the September edition of Smart Business Cleveland.
“We are thrilled to be awarded the Family Business Achievement Award for the second year in a row. Having my two daughters become leaders within the family business has made me extremely proud” states Bill Burke, Owner of Fire-Dex.
Lauren Burke DeVere, President of Fire-Dex and eldest daughter of Bill Burke, will be speaking at the conference on the Family Business Owner/Operator Panel where she will provide her insights on being a second-generation owner/operator.
“I am excited to have the opportunity to speak at the Family Business Conference where I can share my experience of being a second-generation leader,” states Lauren Burke DeVere. “Over the last few years, it has been my mission to grow our vision through expanding upon our Metro accounts, leading us through multiple acquisitions, and aggressively hiring more team members. None of this could have been achieved without our passionate Fire-Dex Family.”
As a family-owned and operated business, we are proudly owned by Bill Burke and his two daughters, Lauren Burke DeVere and Taylor Burke Gilman. Our organization continues to thrive by focusing on family values and continuous improvement through employee feedback.
