“For me, being successful as president means truly connecting with the people around me,” Dustin said. “Running a business at the forefront of innovation is more than worrying about the almighty dollar; it requires building relationships and understanding the human element that drives it forward. The best decisions are made when we put ourselves in the shoes of our customers and employees, and that’s where real connection and understanding happens.” 

The selection process for this year’s honorees involved a panel of judges carefully chosen to evaluate the candidates. The panel included Jason Sabin, CTO of DigiCert; Nathan Anderson, EVP & COO of Mountain America Credit Union; Conley Hamilton, board member at Ivy City Co; and Ryan King, CFO of Thread Wallets. 

Dustin’s journey at WW Clyde began as an intern, where his strong work ethic and willingness to take on any task impressed his colleagues. As he advanced within the company, he recognized his success was a reflection of the hard work and support from those around him. His ability to lead and inspire others earned him the respect and admiration of his colleagues, ultimately leading to his appointment as president. 

One of the notable aspects of Dustin’s leadership is his commitment to ensuring everyone in the organization has a voice. Leading by example, he inspires and motivates others to do their best work. At the end of the day, Dustin’s recognition as CXO of the Year comes as no surprise to those around him. It symbolizes his ability to drive change and extend the long-lasting legacy of WW Clyde. 

“I am continually impressed with Dustin’s ability to humbly lead by example,” said Scott Okelberry, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Clyde Companies. “I’ve known him for 25 years and have enjoyed watching him progress in his career. He genuinely cares about the well-being of our employees, our customers, and the community we serve, and this has positioned WW Clyde to steadily grow as a cutting-edge company. I couldn’t think of a more deserving recipient of this recognition.”
