“Since 1989, LIMA has bestowed its highest honor on those individuals who have made a distinctive and significant contribution to the licensing industry,” said LIMA President Charles Riotto.

“The Hall of Fame Award pays tribute to the most deserving executives in our community over a lifetime of work. Candidates are judged based on their exceptional impact within the industry as well as their overall integrity and legacy.”
