Ken Wampler Business Person of the Month

Destin, Fla., May 18 – The Destin Area Chamber of Commerce honored Newman-Dailey Resort Properties President Ken Wampler with the Chamber’s Business Person of the Month Award. This award is presented directly from the Chamber’s Board of Directors to a Destin area businessperson showing vision for his or her business and leadership in our community.

“When you look at the success of Newman-Dailey, Ken is right there beside Jeanne making it work. His involvement in the community is unbelievable, which also puts Newman-Dailey on high ground. He just ‘gets it,’ and it shows,” explains Destin Chamber President & CEO Shane A. Moody, CCE, FCCP.

Wampler joined the Newman-Dailey team in 2009 to head up business development as well as assist with the association management efforts.  Today he serves as president of the company overseeing all divisions including vacation rental, real estate, association management and long-term leasing. With a results-focused management career, he has used his 29 years of experience, including 12 years on the Emerald Coast, leading successful start-up, turnaround and high-growth club and resort operations. His leadership in Newman-Dailey’s Association Management Division created exponential growth, and the company now represents more than 60 association clients along the Emerald Coast. In addition to his other roles within the community, Wampler is the Chairman of the Okaloosa County Tourist Development Council and is a past Chairman of the Destin Chamber, where he served nine years on the Board of Directors.

“Ken is a true leader in our business community. His approach to life and business is outstanding. Ken is always volunteering his time to a board or organization, helping make Destin a better place to live and vacation,” explained Destin Chamber Chairman Jerry Sullivan of Century 21 Blue Marlin Pelican. “He is always ready to roll up his sleeves and get the job done. We are fortunate to have business leaders like Ken in Destin and Okaloosa County.”
