Nominations are being accepted for the Leon S. Peters Award!


The Fresno Chamber of Commerce is now accepting nominations for the Leon S. Peters Award, which will be presented at the annual Valley Business Awards and Installation Luncheon to be held in early 2018.

Leon S. Peters, a respected businessman, civic leader and philanthropist, lived and worked according to the highest ethical standards. He cherished his community and considered its well-being his personal responsibility.  Peters gave back in many ways, serving in leadership capacities and donating millions of dollars to a variety of causes. When he passed, he left behind a legacy of business success, public service, private philanthropy and an ethical leadership model that few can emulate.

In his memory, the Leon S. Peters award was created in 1984 and continues to be sponsored annually by the Fresno Chamber of Commerce. This award was established to preserve the memory and legacy of Leon S. Peters and to honor a central valley leader who, over a period of time, has clearly demonstrated in his or her personal and business life, the values, ethics and character exemplified by Mr. Peters.

Nominees for this prestigious award must be submitted by another member of the community and are required to embody traits consistent with the life of Leon S. Peters. Click here to nominate a deserving person today!
