Don Richards Leadership Award

As former publisher of The Business Journal and president of the Waukesha Area Chamber of Commerce, the late Don Richards’ hands-on leadership, ethics and delight in achieving tangible results have left a lasting impression on our leaders today. The Don Richards Leadership Award was created in his honor in 1993 to inspire and motivate business people to take community leadership roles.
