“It is an honor for the Chamber to induct this outstanding class of business leaders into the Omaha Business Hall of Fame,” said Heath Mello, President and CEO of the Greater Omaha Chamber.  “All seven inductees are truly giants in their industries, and all have given so much back to our business community and to our city.”

The 2024 Omaha Business Hall of Fame honorees were chosen by a volunteer selection committee, which consisted of David Anderson, Jr., Mickey Anderson, Stephen Bruckner, Rodrigo Lopez, Linda Lovgren, John Lund, Brenda Mainwaring, Heath Mello, Jane Miller, Jay Noddle, Joe Sullivan, Carmen Tapio and Willy Theisen. 

The 2024 honorees will be formally inducted during a gala on August 21 at the Holland Performing Arts Center.
