Formula Boats Chairman Victor B. Porter was recently inducted into the prestigious Junior Achievement of Northern Indiana Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony was held May 15th, 2012, at the BEL (Business and Education Leadership) Awards at the Fort Wayne, Indiana, Grand Wayne Center.
Honored for “high-quality performance” as an entrepreneur and successful business leader, Vic attributes his company’s premier position in the industry to the family of Formula boat owners and to the dedication of the Formula Team of employees. Vic related, “I’m often asked how, in a small town in Indiana, we arrived at the top quality, technically up-to-date, complex powerboats we market today. I always reply that it’s due to our quality conscious people who design, engineer and build them.” Vic thanked the Junior Achievement organization for “encouraging the entrepreneurial spirit in young people and recognizing those who have set the example of all it takes to be successful in a business and in their own lives.” Vic also thanked his wife Kris and his family for joining him in the goal of delivering the highest quality pleasure boats on the water.
