The Idaho Business Review is pleased to announce the winners of the 2020 Excellence in Finance awards, which honors outstanding performance in the banking, corporate, investment, educator and professional sectors.

Nominations for the award came in from across the state. Honorees were chosen for their track records of leadership, vision, innovation, competitiveness, financial performance and community leadership.

“Excellence in Finance is an opportunity to celebrate these financial professionals who keep businesses in the black across the state,” said Cindy Suffa, Idaho Business Review publisher. “While a number of our honorees work for banks, others come from sectors like technology, manufacturing and retailing. We are thrilled to celebrate their many accomplishments.”

A power lunch and awards event will be held in their honor from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 14 at Boise Centre East. The leaders will be featured in a magazine published with the Idaho Business Review on Oct. 16. Reserve tickets now on the IBR website.

The program and publication congratulate men and women in Idaho whose fiscal accomplishments set a high bar for their company and Idaho’s business economy.
