Attaboy! Perry Named Business Person of the Year (Among Other Things)

Published on

On January 12, the Destin Chamber of Commerce hosted its Breakfast on the Bay and annual membership meeting where the 2018 board of directors was installed.


Heading the leadership for the board in 2018 is Robert Perry, general manager of Destin Commons. Mr. Perry has been an active member of the chamber since arriving in the Destin area in 2009 and has served on the Destin Chamber Board since 2013.


Since joining the board in 2013, he has served as membership chair (2015), economic and community development chair (2016), chair-elect (2017) and will serve as chairman in 2018.


“I consider myself both humbled and blessed to be living and working in this great community we all call home, Destin, Florida,” Mr. Perry said. “Humbled, because of the great opportunity presented to me in 2009 to be able to take the reins of Destin Commons, and blessed because of the many great people, businesses and organizations that I have gotten to know during my time here.”


Mr. Perry was also presented with the Business Person of the Year award by immediate past chair Lockwood Wernet, who said Mr. Perry “leads one of the most recognizable businesses in the Destin community. He’s led his company to expansion and growth over the past several years, creating hundreds of jobs for residents and improving the economy for all.”
