Minor Mickel Shaw, Chairperson of the Greenville-Spartanburg Airport Commission, is among three named to the 2012 South Carolina Business Hall of Fame. Shaw is the President of Micco LLC and Mickel Investment Group, a family investment corporation.

Bill L. Amick, real estate developer and former chairman and CEO of Amick Farms, Inc., and the late Jerry Zucker, founder of The InterTech Group will also be inducted. The induction ceremonies are May 24 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.

The South Carolina Business Hall of Fame honors state business men and women who, through their accomplishments, serve as champions of free enterprise and role models for tomorrow's business leaders.

Shaw grew up in Greenville. In 2010, she was named Greenville County's Economic Development Ambassador.  Shaw has been honored with many additional local and statewide awards to include the South Carolina's Order of the Palmetto, the Greenville Chamber of Commerce Chairman's Award, the Urban League's Whitney Young Humanitarian Award, and Philanthropist of the Year. Shaw's leadership on the GSP board of commissioners was instrumental to bringing Southwest Airlines to the upstate.

Amick, a native of Saluda, assumed the management and operation of Amick Farms. Today, the vertically-integrated  hatchery, feed mill and state of the art poultry processing facility produces 7-million pounds of chicken each week. In 1992, Amick began devoting his business and management expertise to real estate development. He, along with partners, developed projects in Beaufort and Hendersonville, N.C. 

Zucker was chairman, president, CEO, and founder of The InterTech Group, one of the largest privately held companies in the United States and South Carolina's second largest privately held company. The Intertech Group manufactures products with operations throughout the world, as well as retail, financial, and real estate services throughout North America.  At the time of his 2008 death, he was also Governor and CEO of Hudson's Bay Company, Canada's largest department store retailer. He had over 350 inventions that resulted in numerous patents and commercially successful processes and products worldwide.
