HAMMOND Three members of the Louisiana Small Business Development Center at Southeastern
Louisiana University were recognized with awards at the state SBDC spring meeting
held in March in Lafayette.
William Joubert, director of the university SBDC and its Southeast Louisiana Business Center, was cited with the group’s Big Deal Award for his work with a local healthcare operation in its business and human resources development.
Business consultants Wayne Ricks and Steven Baham were recognized with the Five Million Dollar Club and Million Dollar Club awards respectively, based upon their efforts to help achieve financial backing for multiple clients.
Joubert received the Big Deal Award in 2010 for his work in developing a comprehensive retail study that served as a critical marketing tool in recruiting major new retailers to the city. Ricks is also a past recipient of the Five Million Dollar and Million Dollar club awards.
