If you were unable to attend ABiz’s 2015 Entrepreneur of the Year symposium last week at the Cajundome Convention Center, the program will be broadcast on AOC beginning Friday.

The second annual symposium honored Butch Darce, chairman and CEO of Taylors International Services, as the ABiz Entrepreneur of the Year for 2015. Cathi Pavy, partner and creative director for BBR Creative, received the first-ever Jillian Johnson Award for Entrepreneurship in the Creative Economy. Darce and Pavy were joined on stage for the discussion by Seenu Kasturi, CEO of Lafayette-based Blue Victory Holdings. The event was moderated by The Opportunity Machine’s Zachary Barker.
