Inside the 2019 Ultimate CEO Awards
The South Florida Business Journal honored 15 CEOs from top companies across Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties for their business acumen, leadership skills and community involvement at the 2019 Ultimate CEO Awards on Thursday at the Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale.
The event, which drew over 325 attendees, brought together exemplary leaders who offered our readers their wisdom on company culture, achieved career aspirations and motivations to succeed as part of the Business Journal's Ultimate CEO Insights series in print and online.
Readers can learn more about why these CEOs represent the best of South Florida's business community in a special section in the Sept. 27 issue, or they can go to our online Collection.
As CEOs thanked friends and family at the awards ceremony, they were tasked with donating $75 to their local United Way chapter for every 15 seconds they exceeded the two-minute limit on their acceptance speeches.
Some of the CEOs kept within their time limit but announced large donations to United Way anyhow. By the end of the event, the CEOs had raised more than $23,000 for United Way.
The event was presented by Comcast Business, with corporate sponsors FIU Business, GCI Worldwide Corp., Randstad Professionals and Regions Bank. Associate sponsors were the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County, the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance and the Miami-Dade Beacon Council.
