Since 1988, the Tampa Bay Business Hall of Fame has recognized exceptional individuals who’ve distinguished themselves through their contributions to the Tampa Bay community. The honor is reserved for leaders who’ve made significant impacts through their business and civic achievements and by serving as lifelong examples of integrity and high ideals. Members of the Hall of Fame are inspirations to young people who will follow in their footsteps.
Proceeds from the Hall of Fame support the economic, financial literacy and free enterprise education programs of the FCEE and the Gus A. Stavros Center for Free Enterprise & Economic Education at the University of South Florida. Established by statewide business leaders in 1975, the FCEE provides teacher training programs, curricula, student competitions and other educational resources free-of-charge to thousands of teachers each year throughout the state’s K-12 system. By investing in the economic and financial “know how” of our children, the Tampa Bay business community has a tremendous influence in developing the informed and responsible employees, citizens and leaders of tomorrow.


This celebration is the Must Attend business event of the year! Induction into the Tampa Bay Business Hall of Fame is a prestigious honor; over 600 attendees join the region’s most influential leaders in business, education, philanthropy and government in celebrating this special occasion.
