Two industry CEOs recognized as Louisiana Growth Leaders


Two Louisiana industry firms were among 10 companies honored by Louisiana Economic Development as 2020 Louisiana Growth Leaders.

Staged online last week, Spotlight Louisiana 2020 is an annual event celebrating second-stage businesses in the LED Growth Network.

Among those cited for their community involvement and business success were Joseph Brinz, co-founder and CEO of Engineering & Inspection Services LLC in Metairie and Stephen Dawson, president and CEO of ISOMAG Corp. in Baton Rouge.

Engineering & Inspection Services specializes in plant engineering and small cap projects. ISOMAG provides magnetic bearing isolators to the oil and gas, mining, chemical and power generation industries.

“Investing in entrepreneurship and growing our small business community are key missions here at LED,” Secretary Don Pierson said in a prepared statement. “We will continue to help small businesses achieve their growth goals and realize success. The 2020 Louisiana Growth Leaders class and the outstanding finalists are a great testament to that success.”

Louisiana Growth Leaders are selected by economic development professionals from across the state. A panel evaluates applications on growth, strategy, innovation, leadership, culture, philanthropy and intangibles. Another 21 finalists were recognized at Spotlight Louisiana 2020. Detailed information about the winners and finalists can be found in Louisiana’s Entrepreneurial Engine 2020. See the full announcement.
