Dachser CEO Accepts Award for Family Owned Businesses


Atlanta, GA (November 30, 2016) - The consulting and auditing firm EY (Ernst & Young) recently honored successful entrepreneurs with their Entrepreneur of the Year award. Dachser CEO Bernhard Simon was among the winners and accepted an award for family owned businesses.

Simon was awarded for entrepreneurship, innovation and personal dedication. He received the award in Berlin on November 18.

This is the fifth time EY has honored an entrepreneur who actively contributes to sustainability, values orientation, and assumes social responsibility in the family-owned business category. The jury based its decision to give the award to Mr. Simon on the fact that he has prepared the successful family-owned company for the future by instituting exemplary leadership and succession guidelines.
