IBR honors 15 for Excellence In Finance

Kim Burgess//August 13, 2018

The cover of the 2017 Excellence in Finance publication. The 2018 edition will publish on Oct. 12, 2018.

No matter the industry, every company has to closely monitor its cash flow – dollars in vs. dollars out. This year, the Idaho Business Review is honoring 15 financial wizards who keep their eyes on the bottom line.

The 2018 honorees are among “the best of the best” in the financial arenas of banking, corporate, investment and professional.

To earn the award, each submitted an application and was judged by a selection committee of past IBR Excellence in Finance honorees, who reviewed and rated them in the areas of leadership, mentorship, achievements, community leadership and community service. Those scoring highest are this year’s winners, representing companies such as Zions Bank, Lamb Weston Holdings, Scentsy and Idaho Trust Bank.

A power lunch awards event featuring a keynote speaker will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 11 at Boise Centre East. Click here to reserve your tickets for the awards lunch!
