The Greater East Dallas Chamber of Commerce awarded neighbor Mark Ramsey with its annual Chairman’s Award for his outstanding service to the community.

Ramsey is the owner and founder of Solutions Technology, a toner manufacturer for printers. He is vice chair II for the chamber and chairman of the Live Local Committee. He also serves on the Economic Summit Committee.

He is a co-founder of 100 Men of East Dallas, founder and president of the Bryan Adams Booster Club and past president of Dallas Little League Baseball, where he helped raise money to build the fields at Winfrey Point.

“There are a lot of people who are deserving, so it was very kind of you to do that for me,” Ramsey said. “I wanted to be part of something that made a difference, and we make a difference in our community. It’s fun to be a part of. I look forward to all that’s going to happen this year.”

The Chairman’s Award recipient is selected based upon professional experience, contributions to the chamber, community engagement and areas of leadership.

“When something needed to be done, [Ramsey] stepped up and offered to help,” according to a release from the chamber. “His focus and dedication to the local business community of East Dallas is second to none.”
