IBERIABANK in Lee County has been ac­knowl­edged with a Busi­ness Cit­i­zen­ship Award from the Hori­zon Coun­cil and Lee County Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment. Staffers in Es­tero and other of­fices im­prove life in Lee County, do­nat­ing off-work hours to se­lect causes. Win­ners were named at a Hy­att Re­gency Co­conut Point lun­cheon in Es­tero. “All of these win­ners have unique sto­ries and ex­pe­ri­ences that truly re­flect the di­ver­sity and spirit of Lee County’s busi­nesses cul­ture,” says Lawrence An­tonucci, Hori­zon Coun­cil chair.

iBERIABANK, to earn the dis­tinc­tion, had demon­strated fi­nan­cial, vol­un­teer and ac­tive in­volve­ment in phil­an­thropic or­ga­ni­za­tions. Since en­ter­ing the Lee County mar­ket in 2009, iBERIABANK has been a strong sup­porter of the com­mu­nity, of­fer­ing em­ployee vol­un­teer hours, branch fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties and di­rect fi­nan­cial con­tri­bu­tions. The bank last year gave to causes rang­ing from health care to ed­u­ca­tion, do­nat­ing more than $50,000. The Hori­zon Coun­cil is a pub­lic-pri­vate board es­tab­lished in 1991 to ad­vise the Lee Board of County Com­mis­sion­ers on eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment is­sues.
