On this episode I sit down with President & CEO of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame Shannon Rich.
As president and CEO, Rich directed the single-largest endeavor in the organization’s 90-year history—the opening of the Gaylord–Pickens Museum. Before joining the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, Rich served as executive vice president at John Q. Hammons Hotels, opening both the Renaissance Oklahoma City Hotel and the Downtown Courtyard by Marriott.
Rich’s leadership has resulted in a tremendous impact on the Oklahoma Hall of Fame’s statewide exposure, educational programming and guest experience with more than 45,000 Oklahoma students experiencing the Museum through the free field trip program; the creation of one of the most active teen boards in the state; a significant increase in overall donor support; the launching of an emerging leaders board of young professionals; free family programming; the completion of a $19-million capital campaign; and enhancing the experience and revenue associated with the Oklahoma Hall of Fame.
Rich continues to make a lasting impact on her community. Her awards and honors include being recognized as one of Oklahoma’s “Most Admired CEOs,” and she is a three-time honoree and inductee of the Circle of Excellence for the Journal Record’s “50 Making a Difference”.
Rich is a fifth-generation Oklahoman and a proud graduate of Oklahoma City University. She and her husband, Kelly Kerr, have one daughter—Mia. Together, they enjoy playing tennis, golf and being outdoors.
