Local Businessman Wins Trustee of the Year Award
March 30, 2009 (AUGUSTA, GA) – Brandon Wilde Board of Directors Chairman Tom Dozier, of Augusta, has been named the 2009 recipient of the Aging Services of Georgia Trustee of the Year Award. The award recognizes individuals that demonstrate excellence in leadership or governance accountability. The award was presented at a special ceremony Monday, March 30, at the Augusta Marriott Hotel & Suites.
Mr. Dozier, 66, has served on Brandon Wilde’s board of directors for more than 15 years, and his dedication to the volunteer position made him the obvious choice for this prestigious award, said Rich Kisner, president and CEO of Brandon Wilde.
“Mr. Dozier’s contributions to this board can not be overstated,” Mr. Kisner said. “He’s been a driving force behind many Brandon Wilde projects and plans, and we would not be where we are today without his input.”
Mr. Dozier, who is president and CEO of Gold Mech, Inc., an Augusta mechanical contractor, said he is humbled by the honor and insisted the award is a reflection of Brandon Wilde’s management.
“I’m just here to serve the community,” he said.
A graduate of Georgia Tech, Mr. Dozier has put that community spirit to work in the past, participating in a number of local groups, including the American Red Cross, the Augusta Exchange Club, Leadership Georgia as well as holding a number of positions within his local church.
