About the SMEI Academy of Achievement
The SMEI Academy of Achievement was established in 1990 to recognize notable lifetime contributions to the free
enterprise system through personal and corporate success in sales and marketing. It is SMEI’s Hall of Fame, honoring those whose qualities of professionalism, ethical standards, leadership, and excellence have made the free enterprise system work and made the world a better place to live.
How SMEI Academy of Achievement Honorees are Selected
Honorees are selected by an international board of governors for induction into the International Achievement Hall of Fame. Nominees must be business executives of high moral character who have played a major role in the success of their company through leadership in the support of sales and marketing.
