The inaugural event for the Hunterdon County Business Hall of Fame will be held by the Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce Foundation at the Ryland Inn on Thursday, September 14, 2017, at 6:00pm.
The Foundation’s mission is to advance the interests of the Hunterdon County business community through business resources, economic & workforce development, leadership development, tourism, philanthropy, and the promotion of civic, educational, cultural and economic interests of the region.
The Hunterdon County Business Hall of Fame was established to honor current and past business leaders, businesses & organizations, who have made important contributions to the Hunterdon County business community and to tell the story and rich history of business and industry here in Hunterdon County, and to ensure these stories are preserved and shared.
Brokaw Photography & Video was selected to interview each of the recipients and create videos that offer insight into the views and thoughts of the current leaders of the selected businesses. It was a joy to meet with these leaders and see how truly sincere and authentic they all are.
