Oct. 22, 2010 - PRLog -- Provo, Utah – Oct 22, 2010 – The Utah Valley Entrepreneurial Forum (UVEF) will induct Hal Wing of Wing Enterprises into its UVEF Hall of Fame tonight at the Provo Novell Campus. Inductees represent individuals and organizations with an enduring legacy of entrepreneurial excellence.

Hal Wing, a Utah native, is known globally as the founder of Wing Enterprises, creator of “The Little Giant Ladder System.” Wing’s entrepreneurism was inspired by a German ladder prototype in the 1970s. He brought the idea back to the United States, patented it, and began Wing Enterprises in his garage. Within the first year, he sold more than a half-million dollars’ worth of ladders. Today, he is listed in the Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in the West, Who’s Who in Finance and Industry, and Men of Achievement. Wing was also named the 2005 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year.

“Hal Wing’s story captures the essence of entrepreneurism,” said UVEF chairman John Pilmer. “He took a simple idea, very little capital, a lot of passion, and turned it into a thriving multi-million dollar business.”

Hal Wing will join Hall of Fame inductees Alan Ashton, Dr. Bill Pope and Dr. Stephen Covey.
