Dina Dwyer-Owens Chairwoman and CEO of The Dwyer Group
Co-Chair, The Dwyer Group, Inc.
Behind the fancy job titles, the awards, the TV appearances, and the $1 billion-dollar-business that her company’s service brands do each year, Dina Dwyer-Owens equates all of her success to rooting for the good guys. The self-described head cheerleader for ethics in business and in life — having and living by a proven Code of Values — has made the famous author and international speaker a voice of reason in a world in search of direction. From her tenure as head of The Dwyer Group over a family of service brands with more than 1,700 locations around the world, to her service as Chairwoman of the International Franchise Association in Washington DC, and to podiums and stages around the world — Dina has championed the idea to Live R.I.C.H. following The Dwyer Group’s Code of Values and the themes of Respect, Integrity, Customer focus and Having fun in the process.
Her first book Live R.I.C.H.: How to build success in your company and your life with a proven Code of Values has connected with thousands of readers offering a simple message that in a world of constant change, values can be ever-present. That same message resonated with millions of viewers when she appeared on the Emmy-award-winning reality TV series “Undercover Boss.” What Dina has communicated has been returned to her exponentially in stories from others. And now, in her new book Values, Inc. Dina aims to help inspire more hope for the future by taking the spotlight and shining it on those doing the things she loves to cheer about: living and leading with integrity.
