(Lafayette, La.) – Louisiana advertising agency BBR is a finalist in the Fastest Growing Business of the Year category in the 13th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business. Winners will be announced during a gala event in New York City on Friday, November 18, which will be broadcast on Livestream.com.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are the world’s preeminent business awards for female entrepreneurs, executives, employees and the organizations they run. More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 90 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year and Fastest Growing. Finalists were chosen by more than 110 business professionals worldwide during preliminary judging. Members of five final judging committees will determine the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements from among the finalists.
“The competition has grown each year because there are so many high-achieving women all over the world, who serve as an inspiration to those who would like to start, grow or lead a business,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards.
BBR has grown substantially in recent years, doubling its staff, tripling its billing and adding a second office in Baton Rouge, La. In 2016, the agency was named to the Inc. 5000 List of the Fastest Growing Private Companies. Now with 31 full-time employees, BBR is poised for further growth throughout the region.
“When we founded BBR 19 years ago, our goal was to create an agency that would make a difference: for our clients, our employees and our community,” said CEO and Partner Cherie Hebert. “We’re tremendously proud that our hard work has resulted in the level of growth and success recognized by the Stevie Awards.”
