Dallas biz columnist celebrates 20 years

Cheryl Hall

Cheryl Hall, the business columnist for the Dallas Morning News, celebrated 20 years of writing her column by recounting some of her most memorable interviews.

Hall writes, “My column started in 1992, focusing primarily on local business figures and entrepreneurs. Along the way, I’ve met my share of business celebrities.

“Many were relatively unknown at the time.

“Think Howard Schultz of Starbucks, Guy Laliberté of Cirque du Soleil, Papa John’s John Schnatter, James Dyson of vacuum cleaner fame, Maxine Clark of Build-A-Bear, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, golf club innovator Barney Adams and 7 Habits author Stephen Covey.

“Others were stars who were unaccustomed to being viewed from a business slant.

“Think glass maestro Dale Chihuly, opera diva Beverly Sills and Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson.”
