August 21, 2015

William H. Hines, Managing Partner, was quoted in a recent Baton Rouge Business Report article, "The Katrina Phenomenon," discussing how Hurricane Katrina positively impacted and united the Baton Rouge and New Orleans business communities. Mr. Hines says, "This is the best I have seen relations between the Baton Rouge and New Orleans business communities in my lifetime." Mr. Hines and other leaders from both cities agree that great progress has been made and they also believe that there still remains a need to raise awareness about the concept of a "super region" unifying both cities. The article closes with some thoughts from Mr. Hines: "We have made enormous progress and we’re all better because of it. But I’m not completely sure it has stuck yet. It’s like a diet. We have to stick to it if we want it to work." Please click here to read the full article.
