BUSINESS HALL OF FAME
FIVE ARE 40TH CLASS OF INDUCTEES
“These distinguished business leaders
are a true representation of Alabama’s
unique economic community, from the
bustling Gulf Coast to the thriving northern
part of the state and points in between,”
said Dr. J. Michael Hardin, dean of The
University of Alabama’s Culverhouse
College of Commerce. “Each has left their
mark on their community, their state, in
fact the world. Each has demonstrated hard
work and vision in their chosen fields, from
residential and recreational development to
education,” Hardin said.
The Hall of Fame, founded in 1973 by
the College’s board of visitors, honors the
names and accomplishments of more than
130 men and women who are some of the
state’s most distinguished business leaders.
To be eligible for selection, a person must
have brought fame and honor to the state
of Alabama. He or she must have made a
significant impact on the development of
community and state by promoting the free
enterprise system and entrepreneurship,
by demonstrating civic leadership, and by
their philanthropy and humanitarianism
toward their fellow citizens. Nominees
must be retired for three years or more or
be at least 65.
