Business Hall of Fame

Business Hall of Fame History

The successful business atmosphere in the Quincy area is no accident. Many great business leaders have laid the foundation for innovation, strong work ethic, sound financial principles and vision that will continue to serve this area for generations.

The Business Hall of Fame was started in 2006 to celebrate the rich history and accomplishments of the Quincy area business community. The leaders inducted each year into the Chamber’s Business Hall of Fame have spent their lives not only building their businesses but also building our community. We hope that their stories will inspire the next generation of leaders to greatness.
