Montana Business Hall of Fame at MSU Billings' College of Business

Montana State University Billings (MSUB), the College of Business at MSUB and the MSUB Foundation are pleased to announce the fourth annual call for nominations for the statewide Montana Business Hall of Fame.


The Montana Business Hall of Fame recognizes business leaders who have been successful in private enterprise in Montana. By identifying outstanding examples of business leadership, the Hall of Fame recognizes, shares, and documents stories of success and innovation. The Hall of Fame creates an awareness of appreciation of Montana's rich heritage of business leadership.


Last year’s class included these outstanding business leaders: Karen Fagg (Billings), Terry Payne (Missoula), and Dr. Nicholas Wolter (Billings). These individuals were honored at An Evening With Henry Winkler dinner on October 11, 2016. At least two new members are inducted each year.
