Doug Cook of Feldco Recipient of the Daily Herald Business Ledger's 2011 Entrepreneurial Excellence Award

DES PLAINES, IL--(Marketwire - Sep 26, 2011) - Doug Cook, President and Owner of Feldco, Windows, Siding and Doors, received the Entrepreneurial Excellence Award from the Daily Herald Business Ledger. Cook received this award in the Regional Spirit Category, as an excellent example of his commitment to the growth and well-being of the region through outstanding corporate citizenship and promotion of regional ties. Feldco, with Cook's leadership, is active in local and regional business groups, promotes charitable and civic causes and constantly strives to build the region's work force and enhance its quality of life.

Jim Elsener, Manager, Business Development of the Daily Herald Business Ledger hosted the event, and congratulated all the honorees, wishing them continued success in their business. "Our role is to shine a light on these executives... and write about local successful business leaders." Keynote Speaker, Tom Walter, CEO of Tasty Catering, noted effective leaders are not managers, but provide the vision and culture that permeates among their employees.

Cook acquired Feldco in 2000, and the company has grown more than 500 percent while expanding operations throughout the Midwest. Cook became interested in entrepreneurship while attending the Kellogg School of Management. He was selected as a recipient of the 2004 Kellogg Rising Entrepreneur Award and is active in counseling Kellogg students and alumni.

Cook made sure to honor the entire Feldco Family. He stated "...excellence in entrepreneurship is only achievable because of the great people with whom I work, and I would like to thank all my Feldco teammates and customers for helping make this honor possible."
