Chief Executive Officer Bruce Cosgrove of the Auburn Area Chamber of Commerce and agricultural marketing guru Joanne Neft were honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards during the 23rd annual Placer County Economic Development Summit Wednesday.
Placer County Supervisor Robert M. Weygandt said “I can’t think of a better, more deserving recipient than Joanne Neft for a lifetime achievement award,” Neft says she was surprised.
Neft accepted her lifetime achievement award but says there is more to do.
Other award winners included:
Donahue Schriber, the company that is developing the Rocklin Crossings and Rocklin Commons shopping centers at Interstate 80 and Sierra College Boulevard in Rocklin.
Homewood Lumber, which was honored for providing friendly, knowledgeable and personalized service in the Loomis Basin for generations and contributing to a host of community organizations and projects.
mPower Placer, a popular, innovative program pioneered by Placer County Treasurer-Tax Collector Jenine Windeshausen that provides financing for owners to make energy-efficiency, water-conservation and renewable-generation improvements to their properties.
The summit is sponsored by the Placer County Economic Development Board (EDB) and organized by the county Office of Economic Development. Each year, the EDB presents awards to recognize public and private-sector contributions to the county’s economic well-being.
