Company / Organization Awards Judging Committee


Clint DudleyClint Dudley, Owner
Shade Tree Auto, LLC, Grimes, Iowa, USA

Clint Dudley received an AAS degree in Automotive Technology from the Des Moines Area Community College before eventually starting an auto repair shop in a small garage behind his home in 2001. Over the next 17 years, Clint grew Shade Tree Auto into a 13,000 square foot facility along a busy highway north of Des Moines, Iowa.  Along the way, the local auto shop received two Dream Big Awards from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Integrity, Grimes Chamber Business of the Year, and in 2018 was recognized with the Gold Stevie® for Company of the Year-Retail-Small at both The American Business Awards® and The International Business Awards®. Clint was named one of the “Forty under 40” business leaders in the Greater Des Moines Area, and has been read into the US Congressional Record for his accomplishments.
   Clint credits his team for the shop’s continued success and for allowing him the time to volunteer within the community. He has served as President of the Grimes Chamber and Economic Development, Community Project Chair through the Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute, and is actively serving on the Urbandale Chamber board of directors as well as the Des Moines Area Community College advisory board. Clint enjoys volunteering as his son’s Cub Scout leader, having a date night with his wife, and weekend family trips across the state, or across the country.  Clint resides in West Des Moines with his wife Mindy, their children Molly and Henry, and their dog Penny.
   Clint is honored to Chair the Company/Organization Awards Judging Committee.  As he puts it: “The best companies demonstrate diligence, innovation, and responsibility throughout their organization. The Company/Organization categories in The American Business Awards were established to recognize the top for-profit and not-for-profit businesses in the country that exemplify these qualities.
   “As a small business owner, the Stevie Awards represents the dedication companies have to their employees, customers and communities. These awards understand that success is more than profit margins and recognize the positive impact any size organization can have on a community.”
