It’s important we remember and acknowledge our roots and these contributions as we continue to grow and add new members.”

The Hall of Fame is a distinguished accolade reserved for those individuals who’ve had significant and sustained impact on both the IBBA and the business brokerage profession. It is bestowed upon contributors to the association, past and present, living or deceased. The inaugural list was tabulated using an objective point system covering the four areas of service/leadership, credentialing, educational contribution, and individual awards.

“It has been a great journey reviewing the nominees and uncovering even more history about the IBBA as part of the process,” commented Cress V. Diglio, Co-Chair of the Hall of Fame Committee. “We know there are many more people to recognize and look forward to doing so as our Hall of Fame accepts inductees annually going forward.”
