Welcome to the Hall of Fame...

The Hall of Fame

BIMA Hall of Fame

Every year, we induct two pioneering changemakers into the BIMA Hall of Fame.

Our Hall of Fame comprises the people who are helping to change the face of the industry, and the people who helped found it. They are entrepreneurs, leaders, acknowledged experts and philanthropists. They are the people who got there first or did it best (or both). And they are global icons and the legends of our industry.

In May 2019 we inducted two icons of their industry – Chief Executive of ITV, Dame Carolyn McCall DBE and entrepreneur, investor and advisor, Sherry Coutu.
