boy_winnerlogo2016-%28003%29Dayton – Nov. 5, 2016 – DMS ink, headquartered in Yellow Springs, was honored at the 15th Annual Dayton Business Journal Business of the Year Awards on November 5th.

This year, DMS ink was named top winner of the Woman Owned Business of the Year and also received a second place award in the category of Minority Owned Business of the Year. Additionally, company owner and president, Christine Soward, took home a third place award in the category of Executive of the Year.

The Dayton Business Journal accepted nominations in the spring covering eight categories including: Community support; Executive of the Year; Manufacturing; Minority-owned Business; Not-for-profit; Rookie Business; Woman-owned Business; and Service Businesses. Competition was quite respectable in each category and chosen by local community leaders.

According to the Dayton Business Journal special report publication, “The DBJ selects several business leaders to serve as judges for the awards. Judges for this year’s program were Dan Curran, former president of the University of Dayton, Montgomery County Commissioner Debbie Lieberman, and Scott Sullivan, president and CEO of SelectTech Services Corporation.” Judges read through nomination material and assign a score to each which are then combined and places assigned to winners in each category and level.


Soward is steadfast in her conviction that innovation and adopting change as part of the company culture is key to the success of her employees and her business. “I believe we will continue to grow and adapt,” Soward told the Dayton Business Journal. “We’re always looking at how we can utilize the next innovation. Stagnation is not part of our plan.”

Earlier this year DMS ink was recognized among the top 100 Asian American Businesses of the Year and a certified company under the National Minority Supplier Development Council.
