Licensing Hall of Fame

The Licensing International Hall of Fame is home to the most esteemed global licensing
executives of the last three decades, bastions of the industry who have shaped our business.
Every year since 1989, at least one (and sometimes multiple) individuals are selected to join the
ranks of licensing’s best and brightest.

Inductees are selected by a committee of industry executives based on nominations received
from the global licensing community at large. The Licensing International Board of Directors
reviews all recommendations before making a final selection.
