2022 Corridor Business Hall of Fame

Event Completed!

When: Thursday, September 29, 2022
Where: DoubleTree by Hilton
Time: 6:00 PM CT
The 2022 Corridor Business Hall of Fame, presented by U.S. Bank, marks the 23rd anniversary of celebrating distinguished business leaders who have established a legacy of leadership within their industries and our community. Three laureates and one emerging entrepreneur will be inducted into the Corridor Business Hall of Fame, joining the elite group of past honorees, on Thursday, September 29, 2022.

Through leadership, vision, and innovation, the laureates and emerging entrepreneur have influenced much of our community’s economic development and social welfare. These distinguished business leaders were nominated by community members, and then selected by an independent committee. These individuals have lived and worked in Eastern Iowa and epitomize five key standards of excellence:

Their IMPACT on their industry or organization;
Their INTEGRITY as an ethical business leader;
Their commitment to bettering the COMMUNITY as a whole;
Their LEADERSHIP qualities, which allow them to be exemplary role models for all of us – especially the children of Iowa;
Their ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT in starting or significantly advancing local businesses.

This elite group of Iowa leaders will be inducted at a black tie dinner held in their honor. Highlights of the evening include video biographies of each laureate and students from local schools will serve as hosts and escorts to reinforce the purpose of the event, to inspire children to visualize success.

Due to a tragic accident, we will be deferring the recognition of Charles N. Funk until the 2023 Corridor Business Hall of Fame.
