    For 37 years, Business Report has been honoring leading professionals and companies in the Capital Region that distinguish themselves by not only succeeding in business, but also by giving back to the community and making our city a better place to live. 

    Business Report and Junior Achievement will honor the following individuals and companies at the 2020 Business Awards & Hall of Fame gala in March. This year’s honorees, as selected by a community panel of judges, are certainly no exception. This year’s winners are:

    Hall of Fame Laureates
    Charlie D’Agostino
    Peggy Scott

    Businessperson of the Year
    John D’Angelo, president and CEO, Investar Bank

    Young Businessperson of the Year
    Craig Gehring, founder and CEO, MasteryPrep

    Company of the Year (100 or more employees)
    CC’s Coffee House

    Company of the Year (fewer than 100 employees)

    All of this year’s honorees will be profiled in the March issue of Business Report and honored at a gala on Tuesday, July 7, at the Crowne Plaza Baton Rouge. Individual tickets are $85 per person, and tables of 10 are available for $850. Get details on the gala, presented by Capital One, Franklin and Hannis T. Bourgeois CPAs, and purchase tickets online.

    This is rescheduled from an original date of March 24 out of concern for the health and safety of attendees and the larger community. The decision also complies with Gov. John Bel Edwards’s Covid-19 stay-at-home order.
