Sweetwater’s Founder and President, Chuck Surack, has been awarded the Legend of Leadership Award by the editors of Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly. He was honored with the award at a breakfast event on February 14. The annual award honors a Fort Wayne IN business leader who, for decades, has shown what truly great leadership can accomplish.
The publication stated, “As a husband and father, entrepreneur, philanthropist, community volunteer and musician, Surack has spent his career serving not only as a leader in his profession, but also as a ‘servant leader’ for non-profits and the community.”
The Legend of Leadership breakfast featured speakers who honored Surack by providing accolades and anecdotes that paid tribute to him and his wife, Lisa, as well as his vast contributions to northeast Indiana. The speakers were Mayor Tom Henry, City of Fort Wayne; Bruce Boxberger, Partner, Carson Boxberger; Joe Jordan, President and CEO, Boys and Girls Club of Fort Wayne; Eric Doden, CEO, Greater Fort Wayne, Inc.; and Brian Bauer, CEO, Lutheran Health Network.
Surack also took the stage to express his appreciation, as well as to offer thoughts on his commitment to Fort Wayne and his leadership philosophy.
