National Christian business publication strives to inspire its readers with powerful stories that change lives.

“As the Executive Chairwoman of The Dwyer Group, I have to be my best authentic self. I am a Christian first. Every speech I do, even if they ask me to avoid politics and religion, I speak about my faith, because it is who I am,” said Dwyer-Owens.

She went undercover, but she revealed more about her true self than she ever expected. Dina Dwyer-Owens, Executive Chairwoman of The Dwyer Group, shared her vulnerability and her faith when she went on CBS’s Emmy-winning hit reality series, Undercover Boss. She spoke about the experience to TwoTen Magazine in the cover article of the 4th quarter edition.

Ms. Dwyer-Owens wanted to find out if her company’s Code of Values was being practiced when employees did business with customers. So, in line with the pattern of the show, she disguised herself and began working on the front lines with other employees. The Dwyer Group is a diversified corporation including widely recognized franchise systems such as Glass Doctor, Mr. Rooter, Rainbow International, and Mr. Appliance. Dina Dwyer-Owens is the daughter of The Dwyer Group’s founder, Don Dwyer. She served as CEO for 15 years. Like her father, Ms. Dwyer-Owens is a devout Catholic.

Throughout the filming, Ms. Dwyer-Owens was touched by the people she encountered. “I am responsible, in some way, for so many lives, and these folks really do work hard to live our values. They really do care about our customers in the way we want them to,” said Ms. Dwyer-Owens.

Ms. Dwyer-Owens felt compelled to be authentic on the show. This led her to share her faith and to be open about her feelings. “I think I have the record for the most tears on Undercover Boss, because I can get very emotional,” said Ms. Dwyer-Owens. “As the Executive Chairwoman of The Dwyer Group, I have to be my best authentic self. I am a Christian first. Every speech I do, even if they ask me to avoid politics and religion, I speak about my faith, because it is who I am,” said Dwyer-Owens.
