Dallas, TX… Proterra Advertising was ranked 67 out of the Dallas 100™ Entrepreneur Awards for 2008. The individual rankings were announced on Thursday, November 20th at a formal awards ceremony hosted at the Morton Meyerson Symphony Center in Downtown Dallas. Keynote speaker was Ray Hunt, Chairman of Hunt Consolidated, Inc. All companies were recognized in ranked order following a special recognition of the Top Ten.
The 2008 Dallas 100™ awards helped top an already special year for Proterra Advertising. September 2008 kicked off the 15th year of business for Proterra Advertising, so winning an award created to honor and recognize Dallas entrepreneurs could not have come at a more fitting time. Danny Sanchez, Founder and CEO, has always exhibited the spirit and traits of a true entrepreneur. Everyday he is reminded of Proterra’s humble beginnings when he looks on his wall at the framed $500 check that he used to start the company. “It really is a thrill to see that persistence and hard work continue to pay off, and I am honored to share the spotlight with other highly successful entrepreneurs,” Danny Sanchez said.
In attendance from Proterra were Danny Sanchez, President; Lisa deLeon, Principal; Jesse Diaz, Creative Director; and Jade Fountain, Director of Marketing and New Business. The team was excited to have ranked number 67, and in the words of Jesse Diaz, “Our goal is to be in the Top Ten next year!”
SMU published the rankings along with company profiles in the November 21st edition of the Dallas Business Journal.
