Bill Daubmann named BGS Chapter Honoree 2022
Each year the FGCU Chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS)’s student officers select a prominent community member to recognize with an honorary membership into the international business honor society. Chapter Honorees must have achieved distinction primarily in business and administration and demonstrate those qualities that Beta Gamma Sigma fosters, including honor, wisdom, and earnestness.
This year, the chapter chose to recognize entrepreneur Bill Daubmann, founder and president of My Shower Door / D3 Glass, as the Beta Gamma Sigma Chapter Honoree for 2022.
At the April 29th Induction Ceremony on the FGCU Campus, Mr. Daubmann delivered a lively and heartfelt chronicle of his journey from a reluctant student in Springfield, Massachusetts, through ten seasons as an on-ice American Hockey League referee, and ultimately to the founding and building of MY Shower Door. Today the business employs more than 165 associates at nine retail location, a glass manufacturing and fabrication subsidiary, and an architectural glass division.
Founded in 1913, Beta Gamma Sigma is the international business honor society for AACSB-accredited schools, which are the top 5% of business school programs around the world.

S. states and more than 190 countries. Notable members include Nobel Prize winners, Olympians, inventors, CEOs of major global companies and nonprofit organizations, deans of the top business schools, and others who are making the world a better place at all levels of contribution through social enterprise, service, and leadership.
