The Business Person of the Year Award is presented annually by the Dublin Chamber to an individual who has positively contributed to the betterment of Dublin’s business community. The recipient demonstrates superior leadership and service and helps to make Dublin a better place to live and work.
“Peter received many outstanding nominations citing his work in building EASE Logistics from the ground up, creating partnerships throughout the region and for his commitment to building and growing his business in Dublin,” said Dublin Chamber Board President Scott Arthur. “In addition, as the leader of the company, he sets the example for his employees through philanthropic donations of both time and resources to more than two dozen nonprofit organizations in our community.”
Coratola founded EASE in Dublin in 2014 in the back of his father’s office with the goal of changing the narrative of third-party logistics. His mission was to make a positive impact on the industry, in his community and among his employees.

The company also is the official logistics partner of the Columbus Crew and an active supporter of community programs and nonprofit organizations including the Mid-Ohio Food Collective, OneDublin and NBC4’s “Stuff the Backpack” campaign.
Coratola is a recipient of the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of The Year award, a Columbus Business First 40 Under 40 honoree, a Dublin Jerome High School Hall of Fame inductee, a five-time Smart 50 honoree and the 2022 winner of the Smart 50 Impact Award.
