Fixture Perfect International President and CEO Finalist for Entrepreneur of the Year

DALLAS - August 2, 2000 Fixture Perfect International President and CEO Rick Davis was recently named as a finalist for the Southwest Area 2000 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in the service industry category.

"It was a tremendous honor to be nominated for this award," said Davis. "The competition was tight because of the many other fine candidates. I'm extremely pleased just to be associated with such accomplished individuals."

The Entrepreneur of the Year award honors entrepreneurs whose ingenuity, hard work and perseverance have created and sustained successful, growing business ventures. Regional award recipients are selected from a group nominated by local business advisers, colleagues, employees or vendors, although self-nominations are also accepted.

An independent panel consisting of fellow entrepreneurs and prominent leaders from academia and business sectors judged the competition. The panel based their decisions on criteria such as the nominee's background, accomplishments and experience. The panel also evaluated company histories, relations with employees and customers as well as future plans.

"My biggest accomplishment is heading up the fine team that has made FPI such a success," added Davis. "This award is icing on the proverbial cake for not just me, but for all of the staff."

Other finalists include James Ivy, Stonebridge Technologies; Dennis "Denny" Houlihan, Sage Telecom; Trent Ates and Fred Rayner, Via Star; William "Bill" Everitt, Brook Mays Music Company; and David Potter, Source, Inc.
