Simply the best CEO

Michael Dougherty would never admit it himself, but he's one heckuva a CEO. That's probably what makes him so good. Able to bridge creative and accounting in a single bound ... he's a businessman with a big heart.

If you've ever seen him at Convention, talked with him on the phone, or emailed him about a breakthrough in your marketing program, you'd know by the tone of his voice that he's for real. If you haven't seen him, he'll be speaking this year at the first annual Kindermusik Convention in November, here in Greensboro.

The reason Michael is wearing a tux in this picture above (he's smack dab in the middle, his head slightly nodding forward). Recently Michael was named CEO of the Year in the Services category in a North and South Carolina competition. Now, Michael advances as a nominee for the National Entrepreneur Of The Year Award which includes past winners Michael Dell, Dell Computer (1989), Richard M. Schulze, Best Buy (1999), and John Mackey, Whole Foods Market, Inc. (2003).

The national award ceremony will take place in Palm Springs, CA in November at a ceremony hosted by Jay Leno.

Go Michael go. We're so proud of you.
