ABiz inaugural Entrepreneur of the Year Symposium was a big success. Business leaders attending the mid-December event at the Picard Center were treated to terrific insight into the rise of Schumacher Group, The Lemoine Company and LHC Group from the trio behind these bellwether companies, Dr. Kip Schumacher, Lenny Lemoine and Keith Myers. Thanks to presenting sponsors Regions Bank and Regions Insurance and moderator Zach Barker of the Opportunity Machine, this was the beginning of what promises to be one of ABiz’s most popular annual events.
