Some of us get sweaty palms just thinking about numbers; then, there are those who revel in them. The 16 Excellence in Finance honorees for 2017 are definitely in the latter category as they represent “the best of the best” in the financial arenas of banking, corporate, investment and professional.

“We are proud to once again recognize financial professionals whose fiscal accomplishments set a high bar for their companies and Idaho’s business economy,” said Cindy Suffa, associate publisher for Idaho Business Review.

A selection committee reviewed and rated applicants in the areas of leadership, mentorship, achievements, community leadership and community service. Those scoring highest are this year’s honorees, representing Idaho from Twin Falls to Chubbuck, Idaho Falls to Boise.

A power lunch awards event featuring a keynote speaker will be held 11:30 a.m. — 1:30 p.m. Aug. 24 at The Grove Hotel. To purchase tickets, go to: idahobusinessreview.com/events/excellence-in-finance/
