INSPIRING
THE INDUSTRY
The CT Hall of Fame, created in 2000,
recognizes the leaders in the consumer
technology (CT) industry who advance
innovation. It also celebrates the industry's
vibrant history of entrepreneurship and outof-the-box thinking. With the 2016 class, 17 new
honorees will join the Hall of Fame expanding
the ranks to 234 members. This group of
visionaries has helped to build the foundation
for the technologies we now enjoy and has
helped to grow the $287 billion CT industry. The
2016 class has worked to develop, promote,
merchandise and report on the products,

services and technologies that connect,
inform and entertain consumers. These
leaders pioneered many of today's products,
services and technologies that have improved
consumers' lives.
This year's class includes inventors with an
idea, business executives, a distributor with
distinctive strategies to bring accessories to
store shelves, a retailer who marketed these
products and a journalist that explained how
technology works. The class also includes two
teams who combined their individual efforts
to make a lasting contribution to the industry.
