Strategic growth and long-term success never comes easy. And no one knows this better than the St. Louis Blues, who honored some of the city’s fastest growing companies on Monday for their accomplishments and investment in St. Louis.
“Though the Blues have been members of the St. Louis community for more than four decades, it’s only been three years since Dave Checketts and Sports Capital Partners purchased the team with the goal of revitalizing the entire organization and bringing the Stanley Cup to St. Louis,” said Peter McLoughlin, St. Louis Blues Enterprises CEO. “We know firsthand the perseverance required to grow an organization and for this reason wanted to celebrate our friends in the business community who are committed to the same goals.”
Prior to Monday’s game against the Nashville Predators, McLoughlin presented personalized Blues jerseys to executives of 20 local companies, who were introduced to fans via the Scottrade Center jumbotron during a second period timeout. Organizations included:
- Alpha Packaging
- Antennas Direct
- BEST Transportation of St. Louis
- BryanMark Financial Group

- Home Design Alternatives, Inc.
- Innoventor, Inc.

“The Blues salute these companies for their vision and growth, and we look forward to celebrating their continued success,” said McLoughlin.
