FES Taking the Good to Great Leap
Future Energy Solutions (“FES”) is proud to announce it is has been awarded the South Florida Good to Great Award® by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce. The Award recognizes businesses that have achieved greatness in their mission and established themselves as industry leaders. Taking the prize in the 51 to 249 employees category, FES joins a select group of previous winning businesses such as Royal Caribbean, Burger King Corporation, FPL, Autonation and several other incredible Companies.
Drawn from Jim Collins’ book “Good to Great”, the Award seeks to identify Companies that show a pattern of transitioning from solid performance to great performance over a four-year period while demonstrating proven leadership and a solid workforce base. The finalists go through an examination by an esteemed panel of judges from the business schools of Barry University, Florida International University and Johnson & Wales.
Accepting the award, Chief Executive Officer Daniel Gold acknowledged the effort of the Company’s staff in building a Company that is now active in 30 states in the United States. “I thank my team. Each day they work incredibly hard to build our business. This award is for them”. The salute comes hand in hand with Gold’s belief that businesses don’t make people – it is people that make businesses.

The team is composed of an eclectic group of professionals from a diverse background with a shared commitment: Future Energy Solutions.
