Nominations Open for the Wyoming Business Hall of Fame

Nominate an outstanding leader in Wyoming’s business community who has demonstrated excellence in business for the 2023 Wyoming Business Hall of Fame award by completing the form at www.wyomingbusinessalliance.com. Nominations are due August 15, 2023.

The Wyoming Business Hall of Fame Award is a joint venture among the Daniels Fund, the University of Wyoming College of Business, the Wyoming Business Council, and the Wyoming Business Alliance/Wyoming Heritage Foundation. The recipient of this award will be recognized at the 2023 Governor’s Business Forum, November 13-15, at the University of Wyoming in Laramie. The Forum is Wyoming’s premier business event.

To nominate someone, please download and complete the nomination form at www.wyomingbusinessalliance.com and send the completed forms to Michele Haagenson micheleh@wyoba.com. For questions, please call Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Faculty Fellow Kent Noble at (307) 760-7860.

To be considered as a Hall of Fame inductee, an individual’s record of business achievement should reflect the same distinctive qualities demonstrated by Bill Daniels, a cable-television pioneer who began his business career in Wyoming. Those qualities include business excellence, entrepreneurial spirit, courageous thinking and action, inspiring leadership, community impact, enduring accomplishments, and an unwavering commitment to ethical leadership principles. Please note recipients can be honored posthumously.

Nominees for the award may be Wyomingites by birth or by choice, have attended the University of Wyoming, and/or have business interests within Wyoming. Consideration will be given to any nominee who fulfills one or more of these requirements. Additionally, nominees may have started and built a business and/or have led an established business to significantly greater achievements. There are two categories of awards for consideration:

  • Contemporary/Visionary – Up-and-coming emerging business person or entrepreneur who has a vision for Wyoming’s future.
  • Legacy – Being someone who has made historic and significant long-term contributions to the business community (can be honored posthumously).

The selection process will be spearheaded by a distinguished group of individuals who will evaluate the nominee’s business career, achievement record, and ethical conduct.
