MMSDC is celebrating iconic Michiganders for their impact on minority businesses

Michigan Minority Business Hall of Fame

Class of 2021

This year’s Michigan Minority Business Hall of Fame class is larger than our typical class and is focused on corporate titans who literally changed the game and created quantifiable, sustainable results. Now more than 20 years since some of these leaders have been in position, we still work with the MBEs they directly and indirectly created and sustained.

You will note that the class includes both new inductees as well as a few former Michigan Minority Business Hall of Fame inductees that are simply being re-introduced as we tell the larger story of these 10 individuals that literally created game-changing results in supplier diversity.


As the key driver of minority business development for over 40 years in Michigan, MMSDC is the home of the Michigan Minority Business Hall of Fame. We created the Hall of Fame to ensure that iconic Michiganders are celebrated for the indelible imprint they’ve made on minority businesses that are driving the state’s economy while empowering communities that are often left behind. This prestigious honor recognizes those who have made a positive transformational impact on Michigan’s minority businesses, including devoted government and community leaders as well as iconic MBEs and corporate leaders.

Michigan Minority Business Hall of Fame accepts nominations annually and is open to any native or current resident of Michigan, living or deceased, who has made significant contributions benefiting the minority business community in the State of Michigan. Michigan business leaders submit nominations and a panel of judges selects the inductees.
