Houston, Texas (May 21, 2014) – EY announced that Design Tech Homes and MainStreet America owner and CEO, Mike Feigin, is a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2014 Award in the Gulf Coast Region. The awards program recognizes entrepreneurial leaders who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Mike Feigin was selected as a finalist from nearly 60 nominations by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on Thursday, June 26, 2014 at the Hilton Americas Hotel – Downtown Houston.
“It is an honor to be recognized for this award,” say Mike Feigin. “All my life I’ve been building and creating things. I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
Mike Feigin founded Design Tech Homes in 1997. Today it has become one of Texas’ largest, privately-owned, full-service, custom home builders. Through volatile economic market conditions, Design Tech Homes has continued to thrive. “Our strategy is to build the best home possible for each Homeowner,” says Mike. A focus on exceeding industry standards earned the company national recognition as Energy Star’s Partner of the Year, one of the highest honors given for energy efficient construction.
But it is Mike’s entrepreneurial spirit and unparalleled work ethic that led him to expand his business into what has become MainStreet America. In 2013, after 10 years of planning and research, Mike and his team celebrated the grand opening of a brand new concept that revolutionizes the way consumers shop for new homes and home products. MainStreet America is the nation’s only, year-round parade of showcase homes and one-stop shopping mecca. Located on I-45 just south of The Woodlands, the 14-acre park features 12 inspirational showcase homes filled with hundreds of products from a variety of manufacturers. Utilizing a digital tablet, visitors can scan products to get information instantly or save to a wish list. Also at MainStreet America are the other home-related services Mike has developed, including an architectural firm, remodeling company, real estate firm, mortgage and title companies, a furniture store, cooking school and two restaurants.
Now in its 28th year, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in more than 60 countries throughout the world. Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year National program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the EY Entrepreneur of the Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 15, 2014. The awards are the culminating event of the EY Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
