Wisconsin Business Hall of Fame

Induction Ceremony Benefiting Junior Achievement

When: Thursday, June 02, 2022
Where: The Pfister Hotel
Time: 5:00 PM CT
Established in 1990, the Wisconsin Business Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony serves to recognize and honor the professional and civic accomplishments of individuals. These leaders also serve as role models for our state’s young people.

Laureate nominations are accepted throughout the year and reviewed annually. Proceeds from the Wisconsin Business Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony allow Junior Achievement to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.

The Wisconsin Business Hall of Fame Exhibit, sponsored by The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation and housed at the Junior Achievement Kohl’s Education Center, functions as an interactive showcase of the nearly 125 inductees. The exhibit features interactive iPad displays, graphics and a multimedia wall. The result is a dynamic experience that makes the stories of Wisconsin business leaders come alive for nearly 25,000 visitors annually.
