    With great distinction, the Oklahoma Venture Forum honors the Chickasaw Nation with this year’s OVF Chairman’s Award for Economic Impact presented by Insperity. The bi-annual award will be presented to Governor Bill Anoatubby, who will receive the award on behalf of the Chickasaw Nation.

    Bill Anoatubby is the current governor of the Chickasaw Nation and has served in this position since 1987. Prior to his governorship, Anoatubby served as lieutenant governor in Overton James’ administration for two terms.


    The Award for Economic Impact recognizes an individual or an organization for exceptional contributions to the Oklahoma economy. This award honors those who do more than run a business. It celebrates the achievement of industrial progress balanced with compassionate leadership and it honors those who emphasize investments in the human spirit as well as the bottom line. Past Award recipients include The Oklahoma Thunder and Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores.
