Idaho Business Review (IBR) is pleased to announce the winners of its 2022 Excellence in Finance and Leaders in Law awards. This annual recognition highlights professionals demonstrating outstanding performance in leadership, mentorship, community service and other areas.
When considering individuals qualifying for Excellence in Finance, a committee considers those in the banking, corporate, investment, education and professional sectors and, for those in the legal industry: associates, educators, in-house counsel, partners, sole practitioners, an unsung hero and an up-and-coming individual are named to the list. One honoree has also earned a lifetime achievement award.
Twenty-three individuals as the 2022 Excellence in Finance finalists and 23 as the Leaders in Law awardees come from all over the state based on track record of success and helping to set high bar for their company and the state of Idaho.
Idaho Business Review will again hold the Leaders in Law awards together with the Excellence in Finance awards during a co-branded event Nov. 17, which will allow the law and finance professionals the chance to network together at a reception. The awards reception will be held at Boise Centre East 4:30-7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17. Tickets are available now.
All of the honorees will be profiled in special publications that will be distributed at the event on Nov. 17 and to all Idaho Business Review subscribers in the Nov. 25 edition of the Idaho Business Review.
