Quinlan M.D., CEO of Ochsner Health Clinic Foundation and International Services; Mike Rodrigue, Owner of Acme Oyster House; José A. Suquet (not pictured), Chairman of the Board, President and CEO of Pan American Life Insurance Group; and Dr. Norman Francis, President of Xavier University of Louisiana will be fêted because they have “embraced the spirit of entrepreneurship in our community” with a record of “outstanding entrepreneurial achievements” and “have made a very significant contribution to the success of their organization or profession” and “adhere to high moral and ethical principles” and as a “role model to others.”
