The University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business honored David Stirling, doTerra founding executive and CEO, with the first-ever Distinguished Entrepreneur Award, at its Hall of Fame Awards luncheon Tuesday held at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
“It is an honor to be the first recipient of the Distinguished Entrepreneur Award from my alma mater,” Stirling said. “The David Eccles School of Business offers tremendous opportunities for students to receive an excellent education, get a head start on their career, and receive valuable real-life experience in the business world. The insights I gained while attending the University of Utah has inspired my vision and contributed to the success of doTerra.”
Industry analysts recently recognized doTerra as an innovator and credited doTerra for the growth of the entire essential oils marketplace. According to a press release, under Stirling’s guidance, doTerra effectively moved essential oils from a niche position to mainstream markets.
The Distinguished Entrepreneur Award is awarded to an Eccles School alum who best exemplifies the ideals of entrepreneurship by starting and successfully managing one or more businesses in a way that demonstrates entrepreneurial and innovative values and characteristics. This year, the business school also introduced three new awards including the Alumni Service Award, the Rising Star Award and the Distinguished Entrepreneur Award.
