The Greater Greenville organization is proud to announce Daniel Boggs has received one of the Mississippi Business Journal’s 2020 Top CEO of Mississippi Awards. The award is one of Mississippi’s most prestigious award programs and acknowledges the state’s CEOs who have helped their companies achieve strong growth and success as well as having made a profound impact on their company and community.
This honor comes on the heels of Boggs being awarded the Mississippi Business Journal’s 2019 Top 50 Under 40 program’s Top 10 Finalist. While both award programs strive to recognize key leaders in various business fields, the CEO Awards of Mississippi recognizes honorees in the categories of Nonprofit CEOs, Rising Stars, Large Companies, Medium Companies, and Small Companies.
The Mississippi Business Journal honored this year’s recipients at a special breakfast at the Old Capital Inn in Downtown Jackson on January 30, 2020. In regards to the award, Boggs said “It is a sincere honor to be recognized as one of the top Mississippi CEOs by such an esteemed publication. This award is a true reflection of the hard work of our Board of Directors and staff, who are dedicated to serving the needs of our community and positively impacting the livelihood of so many residents within the Mississippi Delta. I am honored to lead such a wonderful organization”.
Boggs joined the Greater Greenville organization as CEO on June 11, 2012. Over the past eight years, the Greater Greenville organization has experienced tremendous growth in its programs and services to the greater Greenville community. Doug Wade, President of the Greater Greenville Board said, “Greater Greenville has flourished under Daniel Boggs' leadership. During his tenure as CEO, our organization has built a 42-unit flagship development, The Reserves at Gray Park, purchased and rehabilitated Cypress Pointe Apartments, and updated and refreshed its existing housing developments. Greater Greenville now has 138 units under management. Daniel continues to seek out opportunities for our organization, and I expect further great announcements in the near future. I congratulate him on the well-deserved honor of being recognized as one of Mississippi's Top CEOs by the Mississippi Business Journal."
