It’s no secret that Tampa Bay has a wealth of business and civic leaders. With a regional history rich in technology, banking, agriculture, hospitality and health care, our Gulf Coast home has consistently turned out leaders who are varied and notable, and the Florida Council on Economic Education (FCEE) has a longstanding tradition of honoring them annually at the Tampa Bay Business Hall of Fame.
For 30 years, the FCEE has been honoring business leaders from Polk, Pasco, Pinellas, Manatee, Sarasota and Hillsborough counties for their business accomplishments and civic contributions. Previous Hall of Fame honorees from around the region attend this prestigious event designed to honor the men and women who have made outstanding contributions to free enterprise, have demonstrated business excellence, and are inspiring leadership and social responsibility. The Class of 2017 will serve as role models for those who follow.
Each of those qualities taken individually is notable. Collectively, they represent a level of achievement rarely reached, and certainly worthy of honoring. A representative list of prior honorees include: Dr. Judy Genshaft, Richard, Casey & Cesar Gonzmart, Jeff Vinik, Bryan Glazer, Frank Morsani, Brian Lamb, and Dr. Anne Kerr. The Class of 2017 will join over 180 Tampa Bay executives who since 1988 have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
In short, the men and women who have gained entrance to this prestigious group are the backbone of this community. The Gulf Coast is a better place to live and work because of their efforts. Through their collective history of success, they have painted a vision of a bright future for Tampa Bay and all of Florida.
The Hall of Fame Ceremony does more than just honor Tampa Bay leaders for their significant business accomplishments and civic contributions. It enables the Florida Council to provide critical economic and financial literacy education to K-12 students throughout the Bay area and Florida, those who will take their place as the next generation of informed and responsible employees, citizens and leaders in our community.
Who knows the community better than you?
Don’t miss your chance to honor an outstanding business and community leader. Support the cause and nominate an exemplary local leader for the 2017 Hall of Fame.
