The Chicago Business Hall of Fame was established in 1983 to honor the champions of free enterprise and present role models in business for area youth. Laureates were nominated by an independent business leader committee, under the direction of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, while a “Blue Ribbon” panel of past laureates made the final decision.
