2015 Small Business Person of the Year

Todd Matherne

Todd Matherne has been a driving force in the publishing industry in the Greater New Orleans region for over 28 years, working his way up as an intern in the industry and defying media trends to form Renaissance Publishing Company in 2006 in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.  Renaissance publishes New Orleans Magazine, St. Charles Avenue, Louisiana Life, On Stage, Acadiana Profile, New Orleans Bride, New Orleans Home and Lifestyles, and Biz Magazine. 

Nearly wiped out by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the former publisher of New Orleans Magazine considered closing down until three employees, Chief Executive Officer Todd Matherne, Exective Vice President of Sales Kelley Faucheux, and Editor-in-Chief Errol Laborde bought out the publishing assets and renamed the company.  Today, Renaissance Publishing continues to launch new and innovative products and services including the new and updated MyNewOrleans.com website. 

Mr. Matherne is an active volunteer in a number of social, entrepreneurial, and business development ventures, including the City of New Orleans Customer Service Committee, Task Force Member, Lighthouse for the Blind, New Orleans Regional Chamber of Commerce, New Orleans Regional Leadership Institute, Legatus New Orleans, President – Entrepreneurs Organization of Louisiana, President – National Association City Regional Magazine Association, Catholic Foundation, and outgoing Chairman of the Jefferson Chamber of Commerce.  Mr. Matherne lives in the City of New Orleans and has been married for over 25 years to Andrea Matherne.  The couple has three daughters.
