Three Inducted to Evansville Regional Business Hall of Fame


Junior Achievement hosted Evansville’s Regional Business Hall of Fame Thursday – celebrating local individuals for their lasting impact on the Evansville region.

Three people were inducted Thursday: Norm Bafunno, president of Toyota Indiana, Industrialist Richard Eykamp and the late Charles Braun Sr., who formed an empire when he built Industrial Contractors. 

Eykamp, the chairman for Mid-State Rubber Products, says students looking to become successful in business should listen to their mentors –

“The things that they learn by talking to their mentors will get them a much clearer idea of what they should be looking at down the road to be able to do. “

Eykamp says his drive for success comes from his father.
Eyewitness News Brad Byrd once again hosted Thursday’s breakfast attended by more than 500 people.
