Congratulations My Friend!

Publisher’s Note

Last month the Entrepreneurs’ Organization of Louisiana (EO) held its annual meeting at Ruffino’s in Baton Rouge to begin its new fiscal year, pass the gavel to a new board of directors and honor a member with its annual Marshall Kline Award.

The Marshall Kline Award was created in 2005 in honor of the late Marshall Kline, who was an active member of EO and president and CEO of Mandeville-based Marshall lived a life to the values of EO and each year the organization honors a member who has distinguished him or herself through the qualities the organization esteems.

This year, that award went to my good friend Josh Loeske.  Josh is a forum member of mine in EO and owner of Quality Sitework Materials (QSM).  I met Josh in 2010 when he joined EO and soon after he was ready to go “all in” — joining the board, contributing to help other members grow and all the time working on his own business and family.

The core values of EO are:

• Thirst for Learning

• Trust and Respect

• Make a Mark

• Boldly Go!

• Cool – Once in a lifetime experiences

Josh encompasses all of these values and more and I am proud to call him my friend.

Congratulations Josh! See you in Napa!
