The West Virginia University College of Business and Economics recently inducted another round of people with strong West Virginia ties and who have made significant impacts on the state's business landscape into the West Virginia Business Hall of Fame.

The 2013 inductees are Wesley Bush, CEO and president of global security leader Northrop Grumman Corporation; John Mork, president and CEO of Energy Corporation of America; and Mike Ross, energy company owner and former West Virginia legislator.

The Hall of Fame was created in 2001, and 54 inductees have been recognized so far. The 2013 induction ceremony is scheduled for 6 p.m. Nov. 14 at Waterfront Place Hotel in Morgantown.

"The Business Hall of Fame is a great way for the state to recognize individuals, through B&E, who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and commitment to West Virginia," said Jose "Zito" Sartarelli, Milan Puskar Dean, WVU College of Business and Economics. "These three individuals have made significant contributions to our state, and we are honored to recognize them for their success."

Inductees must have connections to West Virginia, either by birth, residence, education or business presence. They also must have established records of distinction in their fields and industry in the categories of national or international businesses, state-based enterprises or entrepreneurial and family businesses.
