The Entrepreneur of the Year award is given to an individual who—through his or her own risk and initiative—has established a thriving and successful business. Since founding his home improvement company in 2009 with an initial investment of only $3,000, Gottlieb has grown Tundraland to one of the largest home improvement companies in the country and the single largest home improvement employer in the state of Wisconsin. With the designation of its Entrepreneur of the Year award, the Fox Cities Chamber recognized Gottlieb’s impactful leadership and dedication to giving back to the community.
“I’m in the business of creating value for others, and I believe really developing people into professionals is the best way to benefit the business community and the community at large,” Gottlieb said. “Building a healthy business through fostering a culture of enthusiasm and purpose allows me to give back to the community and turn problems into opportunities. It also makes Tundraland perhaps the best place in Wisconsin to work.”
The Event awards program recognizes individuals who exemplify principled leadership, strategic thinking, balanced workplace values and a pursuit of excellence. All nominees must have demonstrated support and commitment to the Fox Cities business community through outstanding business achievements and leadership.
