On November 10, 2016 Jerry Walker ’03, president and CEO of Team Walker and Gary Wolfe ’71, founder and CEO of Wolfe Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc. were inducted into the Seton Hall University Entrepreneur Hall of Fame.
The 11th annual Entrepreneur Hall of Fame induction dinner was held at the Maplewood Country Club in Maplewood, NJ and attended by Seton Hall alumni and entrepreneurs from across the state. Ray Hoffman, host and producer of CEO Radio (WCBS Radio AM 880), was the special guest master of ceremonies.
The Entrepreneur Hall of Fame dinner is hosted annually by the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at the Stillman School of Business to honor both current students and Seton Hall alumni.
“This year’s Hall of Fame inductees have traveled very different entrepreneurial paths but they share an impressive record of success and a strong love of alma mater,” said Joyce Strowser, Ph.D, dean of the Stillman School of Business.
The night also included student honorees. Ryan Skolnick, from Morristown, NJ, a junior triple majoring in management, marketing and information technology management with a certificate in entrepreneurial studies, was presented with the Emerging Entrepreneur Award. Entrepreneurial scholarship recipients were Corey Jones, an MBA student with a concentration in supply chain management and Shaaliyah Lyons, a senior majoring in sports management with a minor in Africana Studies and a certificate in entrepreneurial studies.
Founding Director of the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, Susan Scherreik, noted, “We’re proud of the strides we’ve made toward fostering an entrepreneurial culture at Seton Hall University. Our alumni have been with us every step of the way and are incredible role models for our students.”
