About the WV Business Hall of Fame
The WVU College of Business & Economics initiated the WV Business Hall of Fame award in 2001 to recognize people with strong West Virginia ties who have made a significant impact on the business landscape.
Nominees must illustrate extraordinary leadership, have demonstrated a commitment to their community, and have a strong West Virginia tie as explained in the criteria. Nominations are not limited to WVU graduates. To view the complete criteria, please visit the nominations page.
Publicly recognizing extraordinary business leaders and establishing a record of their achievement are important for many reasons. These individuals and their contributions remind us of the constant need for renewal and change and the opportunity for economic success, particularly in West Virginia. Moreover, they serve as role models for our state's business students, those just beginning their careers, and for new entrepreneurs.
