Doug Palmer Presented Chamber’s Prestigious Deming Award

Local Leader Recognized for Entrepreneurship, Leadership, & Community Efforts

The Siouxland Chamber of Commerce presented the W. Edwards Deming Business Leadership and Entrepreneurial Excellence Award to businessman Doug Palmer at the 33rd Siouxland Chamber Annual Dinner this evening.  In front of a packed house, Palmer was recognized for his decades of entrepreneurial initiatives and business excellence, as well as his countless volunteer contributions to the Siouxland community.

A fifth generation Sioux Cityan, Palmer stated, “This community has given the Palmer family so much for so long and I am genuinely humbled to be acknowledged for doing my best to say, ‘Thank you’ to a community I am so proud and so grateful to call home.”

The annual award is presented to an outstanding business executive and exceptional community leader in the tri-state region during the Siouxland Chamber’s Annual Dinner meeting hosted each fall at the Sioux City Convention Center.

Palmer has served as CEO of Tegra Corporation, the parent company of Big Soo Terminal and Sioux Rubber and Urethane, for 35 years.  Additionally, he has an ownership interest and advisory role in Palmer Candy and Lite Form Technologies.  He has also served on the Board of Directors of Security National Bank for many years.

In addition to his many successful business ventures, Palmer has been active in countless community causes and was lauded by Debi Durham who currently serves as the Director of the Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) in Des Moines.  Durham, who worked with Palmer for many years during her tenure leading the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce, asserted, “Doug Palmer is simply one of the most capable individuals I have ever had the pleasure of working with.  He is among the brightest and most strategic thinkers I know.”

Palmer is identified by many as one of the key strategists in designing, developing, and delivering the successful referendum that allowed Sioux City to invest millions of dollars in new public-school buildings at a time when the infrastructures of the existing school facilities were no longer adequate.  The local program was so successful that it was later adopted by a state-wide initiative in Iowa.

Chris McGowan, President of the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce, emphasized, “Doug Palmer is truly one of the good guys and Siouxland is indebted to him for his innumerable contributions.  His commitment to our community has made his hometown a much better place for all of us.”

The W. Edwards Deming Business Leadership & Entrepreneurial Excellence Award is presented in honor of Dr. W. Edwards Deming, a Sioux City native and world-renowned statistician, philosopher and educator.  This award is designed to recognize local business executives who have exhibited outstanding leadership within the Siouxland community, as well as originality, quality, productivity and performance within the realm of their business.
