Today, Gov. John Bel Edwards announced the creation of Resilient Louisiana, a state commission charged with examining Louisiana’s economy amid the COVID-19 pandemic and making recommendations for more resilient business-related activities and commerce in the coming months. Tyron Picard, Founder and Principal of The Picard Group, joins the 18-member panel which will be co-chaired by Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser, Louisiana Economic Development Secretary Don Pierson, and health care leader Terrie Sterling, a Baton Rouge consultant and retired Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System executive.
“As chairman of the Council for a Better Louisiana (CABL), I am honored to serve on the Resilient Louisiana Commission during this daunting time in our state’s history,” said Picard. “The economic impact caused by this pandemic will require the state to think about many things in new ways in order to hopefully hasten our economic recovery. On behalf of CABL and its members, we stand ready to assist the Governor and Legislative leadership of our state to meet this challenge through the collective efforts of the Resilient Louisiana Commission.”
