2012 Business Awards & Hall of Fame
Success in business is worthy of recognition, and local companies make a major contribution to the quality of life in our community.
The Business Awards were started in 1984 to pay tribute to remarkable individuals and companies within the business sector in recognition of their many accomplishments.
In 1993, Business Report brought in a partner, Junior Achievement, to present the awards, and the Hall of Fame category was added to recognize a lifetime of achievement.
Nominations are referred to a community panel of judges, which includes:
Charles D'Agostino, executive director, LSU Louisiana Business & Technology Center
John G. Davies, president/CEO, Baton Rouge Area Foundation
Adam Knapp, president/CEO, Baton Rouge Area Chamber
Cornelius Lewis, president, Gulf Coast BIDCO
Phyllis Mouton, vice chancellor for workforce, corporate and continuing education, Baton Rouge Community College
