Lifetime Business Builder

The Business Builder Hall of Fame was created to establish an honor roll of individuals who have successfully achieved, toiled and contributed to Brandon’s success through a lifetime commitment to business and community service. This award is differentiated from Business Person of the Year in that it recognizes those who have finished/are finishing their business careers as opposed to those at their peak.
