Ken Wampler Awarded 2018 Chairman Award for Volunteer Service by the Destin Area Chamber


At Newman-Dailey we're proud of our team and their many accomplishments. So when one of our own is honored by the community, it is reason to celebrate the recognition. 

This week, we're celebrating Newman-Dailey President Ken Wampler who was recently awarded the 2018 James D. Neilson Sr. Chairman’s Award for Volunteer Service by the Destin Area Chamber of Commerce. The award was presented by the outgoing Destin Chamber Chairman Bob Perry of Destin Commons and the Destin Chamber CEO Shane Moody in honor of Ken's unwavering commitment and volunteer hours in advocating for Destin’s business community. 

Destin Area Chamber President Shane Moody recently commented "Ken has done so much to further the mission of the chamber.  He steps up and volunteers when we need it, sometimes, even ‘on the spot. His work in the community on behalf of the chamber is a big reason he won this award. When you look for volunteers who promote the advancement of the business community, Ken is the perfect example.” 

Ken has served many roles for the Destin Area Chamber of Commerce over the years, including Chairman of the Board. In fulfilling his current board position as Vice Chairman, Communications and Marketing, he has been extremely active attending most Destin Chamber of Commerce meetings as well as Destin City Council meetings, advocating on issues that affect businesses in and around Destin. In addition, Ken serves on the Board of Directors for the Okaloosa Tourist Development Council and actively supports the successful balance of a strong tourism industry and a thriving local economy.   

The James D. Neilson Chairman’s Award for Volunteer Service is awarded to an individual who has gone above and beyond in service to the Destin Chamber.  The winner is determined by the Chairman of the Board and President and CEO of the Chamber, after input from chamber staff.   

Please join us in congratulating Mr. Ken Wampler on this well-deserved achievement.
