Tampa Bay Times a presenting sponsor of the 2016 Tampa Bay Business Hall of Fame

The Tampa Bay Times will help honor local business leaders as one of the presenting sponsors of the 29th annual Tampa Bay Business Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame Ceremony on April 7, hosted at the Tampa Convention Center, is a signature event of the Florida Council on Economic Education, shining a spotlight on business leaders who have made significant corporate and civic contributions.

The 2016 inductees include Jerry Divers of the Bank of Tampa; Bryan Glazer of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers; Brian Lamb of Fifth Third Bank; Geoff Simon of Simon & Associates Wealth Management of Raymond James; and the late Harris Mullen, founder of Florida Trend magazine, a Times sister publication.

The FCEE provides free training programs, classroom curricula and student competitions focused on economic and personal finance.

"We are delighted to join forces with the council for its signature event," said Paul Tash, chairman and CEO of the Times. "The council advances an educational cause that helps students become productive citizens, and the hall of fame dinner recognizes business leaders who have helped make Tampa Bay a vibrant and dynamic region. Both purposes align closely with the Times' values and efforts."

    Corporate

    St. Petersburg's Fortune 500 company, Jabil Circuit, informally tossed aside the "Circuit" in its name some time ago. That's because circuit board manufacturing, the company's core business for decades, has been squeezed out by a broader business agenda ranging from consumer packaging to supply chain management.

    Jabil Circuit informally dropped "Circuit" from its marketing material and signage, like at its St. Petersburg headquarters, years ago. Now it's official.
