Roll of Distinguished Alumni

Each year, the John Chambers College of Business and Economics at West Virginia University recognizes outstanding graduates through induction into its Roll of Distinguished Alumni. Honorees have always represented a variety of industries and areas of the business world.

Nominees must meet the following criteria:

  • An alumnus of the College
  • At least 10 years post-degree
  • Distinguished themselves by success in business or life at the regional, national or international level
The 2020 induction ceremony will be held September 25, 2020.


The WVU John Chambers College of Business & Economics initiated this award in 2011 to coincide with the College's 60th Anniversary Celebration. New members are added each year as the College recognizes the tremendous successes of its graduates.

The College has helped mold countless successful careers in areas such as business, government and academia; the creation and growth of new enterprises; and the development of opportunities for the well-being of West Virginians and people around the world. Our inductees will serve as a reflection of those successful careers, as well as role models for our students.
