“Rothweiler’s leadership has contributed to significant, yet sustainable growth in the City of Twin Falls,” Mayor Shawn Barigar said in a statement on the city’s website. “Under his leadership, our community has experienced upwards of $1 billion in capital investments and the creation of some 5,000 jobs. And he’s committed to providing outstanding service to the city’s customers by inspiring employees throughout the organization.”

According to IBR, the statewide business publication annually recognizes leaders who “consistently demonstrate strong leadership, integrity, values, vision, commitment to excellence, financial performance, community and diversity.” Recipients are selected by a committee of past honorees.

IBR also recognized eight other individuals as a 2016 CEO of Influence. Each will be honored at an awards ceremony from 5:30-9 p.m. May 11 at the Riverside Hotel in Boise.
