The Big50 awards were presented at a gala dinner at the Remodeling Leadership Conference in Washington, DC, on May 8, 2014.
Each year since 1986, the REMODELING magazine’s Big50 inducts 50 owners of remodeling companies that have set exceptionally high standards for professionalism and integrity through exemplary business practices, craftsmanship, and impact in their community or the industry at large. Big50 remodelers run successful, often growing, companies of various sizes that have taken the lead in raising industry standards.
The Big50 selection process has become increasingly rigorous in recent years, and the result, REMODELING editors believe, is one of the strongest classes to date. “Uniting the 2014 inductees are high standards and a determination to rebound following the recession — taking the opportunity to retool systems and processes- ensuring that they are poised to meet their sales, production, and customer-service goals and continue to thrive,” according to REMODELING.
“We are very honored to be awarded the cover and receive this distinction,” says Darryl Rose, President of Get Dwell. “The award recognizes excellence and leadership, and we are privileged to be among this select group of remodelers.”
REMODELING editors, columnists, industry leaders, and the companies themselves make the nominations each year. Following a lengthy evaluation and interview process, the editors select the 50 individuals who exemplify the best of the industry that year, and who have something to offer other remodelers in proven practices.
