Spirit of Enterprise 2011 Finalist

On November 8, 2011, Dunn Transportation /Ollie the Trolley was honored to be the Winner of Arizona Lottery Overcoming Adversity Award at the 15th annual Spirit of Enterprise Awards presented by the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University.

Margaret Dunn and the entire team at Dunn Transportation/Ollie the Trolley was selected from 50 applicants and honored as one of five companies that demonstrates energy, ethics and excellence in entrepreneurship.

Ollie the Trolley/Dunn Transportation is considered an ambassador to tourists and residents who ride the trolleys and executive coach service valley wide. The Ollie team is proud to have survived the city’s deep transit cuts during the recession without laying off a single employee. Ms. Dunn stated, "Our philosophy is when times are great, we don't go overboard and we don't go buying and getting into debt and when times are tough, we tighten up. You become more resistant to economic downturns with the length of time of being in business."

Margaret is currently a student of the MBA program at the W.P. Carey School of Business and continues to expand her knowledge in Sustainable living and achieving the balance between business and the environment.
