Future Energy Solutions triumphs at the South Florida Business Journal’s 2015 Business of the Year Awards
Future Energy Solutions (FES) is celebrating becoming the South Florida Business Journal 2015 Business of the Year award winner. Running against other accomplished businesses, FES’ unique business approach, global expansion and explosive growth allowed FES to win this coveted award. The award was presented to FES by Bank United who acts as a primary sponsor of the awards alongside Comcast, AvMed and Florida International University.
The award was created to give recognition to organizations that build South Florida’s economy through solid business practice, dedication to our community and financial growth. The Business of the Year Awards are now on its eighteenth year.
The 2015 ceremony took place at The IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame Museum where hundreds of leading business professionals gathered for the awards ceremony, which in addition to the Business of the Year Awards honored Autonation’s Chief Executive Officer, Mike Jackson, with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Accepting the Business of the Year Award, Daniel Gold, Chief Executive Officer at FES, stated, “The philosophy of our company really is ‘businesses do not make people, people make businesses’. We have been incredibly blessed with the team we have been fortunate to assemble not just here but across the world. This award belongs to every one of them”.
The award follows a series of incredible accomplishments in the recent months for FES. After being featured in Florida’s Sun Sentinel, FES received a congratulatory letter from the United States Congress for work in respect of business growth in South Florida and sustainability initiatives.
Shortly after these accolades, FES’s UK office was honored with the prestigious Sustainable Parking Award for its recent installation of over 70,000 energy efficient light fixtures at over 150 sites for National Car Parks, one of England’s major car park operator’s. Last week, FES was selected as a finalist of the prestigious Business Green Leaders Awards 2015, taking place in London on July 1st. In addition, FES’s UK office recently received ISO 9001 certification for its Quality Management System for the installation of energy efficient lighting products for the commercial and industrial lighting market.
The prestigious advisory panel, made of Professors of Business from Florida universities, analyzed hundreds of nominations, finally deciding on three finalists for each category. The judges were impressed with the value FES places in its team and in the Group’s accomplishments over the past two years. Some of these accomplishments include the opening of its European Headquarters in London, closing the largest energy efficient lighting deal in the United Kingdom, the substantial number of energy efficient lighting fixtures installed since its inception and the opening of FES’s new Australian offices in Sydney to cover Australia and the Far East.
With a profile featured in the South Florida Business Journal, Gold stated, ‘We are a tight group and we are very proud of each one of the people we hired throughout the years. One thing unites us all: We are driven by efficiency, whether it is in lighting technologies or new ways to do business.
