Each year the Eau Claire Area Economic Development presents the Paragon Economic Impact Award, sponsored by Royal Credit Union, to a local business that has made an economic impact to our community. The Paragon Award is an opportunity to celebrate businesses that support and enhance the community through a broad range of economic development activities or initiatives.
Businesses are nominated for the Paragon Award by their peers within the community and each business is evaluated based on economic impact. Examples of economic impact included, though not limited to: creation of quality jobs; recent or current expansion of existing facility; construction of a new facility; substantial investment into capital equipment; commitment to continued education and training of their workforce; innovations in the development of new technologies and products.
The Paragon Economic Impact Award was presented to Jim Vaudreuil, CEO/owner of Huebsch, at the Eau Claire Area EDC Annual Luncheon on Feb. 27 at Florian Gardens in Eau Claire.
