Argent awarded state Growth Leader Legend

Ruston’s Argent Financial Group was presented with the inaugural Growth Leader Legend award by Louisiana Economic Development at the 2022 Spotlight Louisiana event.

Ten companies were selected as the 2022 Louisiana Growth Leaders by a statewide panel of economic development professionals, considering the company’s growth, strategy, innovation, philanthropy and leadership. Within the Louisiana Growth Leaders, the Growth Leader Legend award is regarded as the highest honor. This award celebrates past leaders who have exemplified continued success. Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards was present at the Spotlight Louisiana event to offer his congratulations.

“From manufacturing to financial services, each of our 2022 Louisiana Growth Leaders and the inaugural Legend awardee have succeeded in bringing great products and services to the marketplace,” Edwards said. “The companies being recognized have persevered through challenges, capitalized on opportunities, and represent some of the best of what Louisiana has to offer. I look forward to their continued success.”

Argent was honored with the Growth Leader Legend award for its vision, execution and results, particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well at its commitment to philanthropy.

“An early investor in Argent once encouraged us, ‘There may be a limit of what we can do in Ruston, but there is no limit to what we can do from Ruston,’” Argent Founder and CEO Kyle McDonald said. “Thirty-two years later, Argent is still headquartered in Ruston and boasts over 310 employees in 30 markets across 12 states, managing more than $39 billion of our clients’ assets. We are proud of our history and growth, and we are humbled to be the inaugural recipient of the Louisiana Growth Leader Legend award.”
