It is our great fortune at the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas to host the Arkansas Business Hall of Fame celebration. Founded in 1999 to highlight the important and lasting contributions of Arkansas’ talented business leaders, the Arkansas Business Hall of Fame celebrates its 14th year. We believe it is important to the state’s future business leaders to perpetuate these inductees’ names and the amazing opportunities they have brought to the state.
I thank the knowledgeable people who have served on the Arkansas Business Hall of Fame nomination and selection committees. We are grateful for your time, insight and wisdom in choosing such exceptional inductees.
It has been a privilege to serve the people of Arkansas as dean of the Walton College. As I have traveled the state, it has been inspiring to meet the many other successful leaders who have influenced the state’s economy through their businesses as well as by their generosity to the community. Whether Arkansans by birth or by choice, these outstanding individuals have worked hard to contribute to the well being of the state. Congratulations to our 2012 Arkansas Business Hall of Fame honorees!
