The first inductees to the Delaware Business Leaders Hall of Fame in 1990, selected by associates from Hagley Museum & Library, were local historical figures P.S. du Pont, Crawford Greenwald and Joseph Tatnall.
Today, induction to the esteemed HOF, while still relatively Old Guard, is about Delaware’s future, nominated by the community and vetted by the Junior Achievement of Delaware Leadership Council.
Rob Martinelli, CEO and president of Today Media, has announced the 2018 laureates:
- J. Michael Bowman, President of Delaware Technology Park, Associate Director of University of Delaware’s Office of Economic Innovation and Partnerships, and State Director of the Delaware Small Business Development Center
- Robert W. Perkins, Executive Director of Delaware Business Roundtable, Executive Director of Wilmington Leaders Alliance
- Terry A. Strine, Cofounder, Chairman and CEO of Leadership Delaware, Inc.
“This year’s inductees are each recognized for their unique leadership around Workforce and Economic Development through their strategic management at each of their respective organizations,” said Rob Eppes, president of Junior Achievement of Delaware.
