MONTREAL, Oct. 28, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Cofounders Wayne Burke and Steve Shoiry of DNE Resources, an international energy consulting firm, were co-named the EY Young Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2014 Quebec winners in the 'Young Entrepreneur' category during the regional awards gala on October 23, 2014.
The distinguished awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and success in areas such as leadership, innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. A panel of independent judges selected the Quebec finalists.
Wayne Burke & Steve Shoiry are thrilled and proud to be included in such an extraordinary group of entrepreneurs as they seek to redefine the energy broker and consulting business. Over the last 5 years, and through the economic downturn, DNE has maintained an aggressive annual growth of nearly 100% on average while expanding its operations in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom and Ireland. Today, DNE Resources has helped over 200,000 clients in 6 countries choose energy programs based on their priorities - carbon neutrality, reduced spending and budget stability.
"DNE Resources and every member of its organization including the families and friends that support us won this award" said Wayne Burke. "This is an award for a collective effort since, after all, two guys in a basement alone with big ideas will not go very far. We are truly blessed to have the trust, respect and pursuit of excellence of so many amazing people all around us committed to common ideals and objectives".
