2012 Hall of Fame: Bill Stewart
Bill Stewart, President/CEO, Petra Industries
You can add Bill Stewart's name right up there on the roster of marketing mavens who founded their companies in their garages. In Stewart's case, the first product for sale in 1985 was a blank videocassette. "We started out with really no money and just a leap of faith," said the president and CEO of Petra Industries. "It took off, and we have taken it to where it is today."
