NEW ORLEANS, LA (May 29, 2018) — Luz Lobos, President and Founder of Synergy Design Group, is one of five recipients of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Louisiana (HCCL)’s 2018 Excelencia Gala Awards. HCCL selected five businesses and leaders based on “their achievements, leadership, inspiration and active engagement with the Hispanic community” (HCCL 2018). The ceremony on September 21st, 2018 at the InterContinental New Orleans recognizes the following honorees:

Cox Communications – Corporate Partner

ASI Federal Credit Union – Community Leader

Luz Lobos, Synergy Design Group – Small Business

Salvadoran-born Lobos founded award-winning exhibit design company Synergy Design Group in 2000. The design group contributes time and resources to initiatives that further HCCL’s mission to increase visibility and economic growth for Hispanic businesses in Louisiana. As one of HCCL’s sponsors, Synergy designs banner stands, backdrops, outdoor tents, promotional items and other display products for Hispanic Chamber events. In 2017, the Synergy team transformed the front lobby of HCCL’s Bilingual Workforce Training & Business Development Center in Kenner, Louisiana before its grand opening. The center provides career counseling, job placement, training and business development seminars to Hispanic community members. Synergy brought cohesion to the space with professional branded signage for the entrance door and reception area and a color-coordinated wall.

Proceeds from the 2018 Excelencia Gala’s silent auction and raffle will help fund the Bilingual Workforce Training & Business Development Center’s programs and services. Attendees will enjoy a dinner dance, musical performance from Julio y Cesar Band and meal from the InterContinental’s Chef Arthur Batiste.

2017 Women of Color Achievement Awards

Unfazed by Glass Ceilings, Honored Minority Women Bring Millions in Revenue, Hope to New Orleans

100 Black Men of Metro New Orleans with the Women Presidents’ Organization Honor Women of Color Leading Successful Businesses and Nonprofits at 2017 Achievement Awards

NEW ORLEANS, LA — The 100 Black Men of Metro New Orleans, Inc. and the Women Presidents’ Organization (WPO) honor nine (9) women at the 2017 Women of Color Achievement Awards. The organizations identify local women business owners who exemplify professional success and commitment to community service. The event takes place on Wednesday, November 29, 2017, from 6:30-8:30 P.M. at the Renaissance Arts Hotel, 700 Tchoupitoulas St., New Orleans, LA, 70130.

According to 2012 census data minorities owned 36% of local businesses, but profits from those firms amounted to only 2% of total receipts (The Data Center, 2015). One of the goals of the honored women is to improve this statistic so that New Orleans’ economy and citizens thrive. These leaders own multimillion dollar businesses that contribute to economic development in New Orleans. They also actively network, recruit and invest in the community which puts money back into the local economy. Prior to Wednesday’s event, Founder of the Women Presidents’ Organization Marsha Firestone, PhD., would like to “[…] salute all of this year’s powerful award winners as role models for women and girls everywhere.”

Among the award recipients is Luz Lobos, founder and president of Synergy Design Group. “Synergy,” the mutually beneficial joining of elements, is both the inspiration for Luz’s company name and approach to community-building. For Luz, collaborating with people who have different perspectives stimulates creativity, achieves a common goal and builds synergy. The 2017 Achievement Awards honor women who come together despite different backgrounds in order to grow businesses, drive the local economy and inspire others.
