Travel retail firm Paradies Lagardère has recognized two Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) partners for excellence.

The company’s ACDBE Partner Recognition Awards took place at its annual partner meeting during the Airport Minority Advisory Council’s (AMAC) 35th Annual Airport Business Diversity Conference.
Elliott Threat, a long-term partner at Kansas City International Airport (KCI), received the Jethro Pugh Community Initiative Award. Lori and Courtney Ballard of Ballard Associates, partners at Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW), received the Berta Banta Innovation Award. The awards honor the memory of two of the company’s long-time ACDBE partners, Jethro Pugh and Berta Banta, and were presented to the 2019 recipients by Jethro’s son Trey and Berta’s daughter Alyssa, both next-generation ACDBE partners of Paradies Lagardère.

The Jethro Pugh Community Initiative Award recognizes ACDBE partners who have coordinated or executed initiatives that have or will significantly benefit, improve or assist the quality of life for members of the communities surrounding the airports Paradies Lagardère serves. Elliott Threatt won the award for his community initiatives and work, including co-producing and hosting the Ad Hoc Against Crime Awards dinner, developing a program, Veterans Community Perk, which provides free coffee to homeless veterans in the Kansas City area, and volunteering and consulting for Thelma’s Kitchen, which allows customers to pay what they can, helping those struggling with food insecurity. The Veterans Community Perk program is currently being developed into a nationwide program.

The Berta Banta Innovation Award recognizes a Paradies Lagardère ACDBE Partner who changed, elevated or enhanced the traveler experience, or the success of local operations, by introducing a new product or service; upgrading an existing product or service, or developing new innovations to existing products and services. Lori and Courtney Ballard and their team assist in introducing new product lines that appeal to customers and create a sense of place at Detroit Metropolitan Airport. They have also developed tools and systems that help increase stock and accuracy.

“Paradies Lagardère believes the entrepreneurial spirit of local operators, along with diversity, fresh ideas, and local sensitivity, encourages effective business acumen, and as a result, a strong airport concession program,” said Gregg Paradies, president, and CEO, Paradies Lagardère. “The ACDBE Partner Recognition Awards acknowledge partners that embody the best of the best in our industry.”

US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin and HOPE Founder John Hope Bryant Speak on Freedman’s Bank Legacy

US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin and HOPE Founder John Hope Bryant Speak on Freedman’s Bank Legacy

US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin and HOPE Founder John Hope Bryant Speak on Freedman’s Bank Legacy.
On Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020, US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin and I sat down to discuss the Freedman’s Bank legacy, their recent Freedman’s Bank Forum which took place this week at the US Treasury Department Department’s historic Cash Room in Washington, DC.

Immediately following the Civil War in America, and 60 days following what history now refers to the lacy of 40 Acres and a Mule, President Abraham Lincoln established the Freedman’s Bank on March 3, 1865 as part of the Freedman’s Bureau legislation. The United States Congress and Lincoln recognized the need to aid freed African Americans in their transition to freedom, giving them a safe and secure domicile for savings, a vehicle for access to capital, and to teach them how money works, or financial literacy. The famed abolitionist and civil rights leader (and successful businessman) Frederick Douglass stepped in to run the bank after President Lincoln’s assassination. His involvement was also recognized this week.

In honoring the legacy of the Freedman's Bank, Secretary Mnuchin leaned in personally. He's not just passing by the important issues, he is also creating policy change. Thank you, Secretary Mnuchin, for caring about financial literacy, affordable housing, getting capital in areas that are really needed, CRA reform and opportunity zones.

It's always a pleasure hearing the hearts and seeing the action of world leaders who take care of "the least of these" -- God's children.

Let us mark March 3rd, every year, to continue to serve as a reminder that financial inclusion, for all, starts with ‘morals and money.’ The US Treasury Department has agreed to recognize March 3rd every year as the anniversary of and for the Freedman’s Bureau and the Freedman’s Bank. Furthermore, we are thank to Secretary Mnuchin and Deputy Secretary Justin Muzinich for recognizing Operation HOPE’s leadership inspiring the historic name change from the US Treasury Annex Building, to the Freedman’s Bank Building in 2016. The now hoped for annual Freedman’s Bank Forum at US Treasury now builds on this.

Operation HOPE and our growing network of HOPE Inside locations is our work to continue the unfinished legacy and work of the Freedman’s Bank itself.

This is Silver Rights for a new Generation. This is our attempt to right history, and to now help to make things right.
