2022 Up and Comers Honoree: Jorge Cuartas Martinez

Jorge Cuartas Martinez began his career in Spain after he earned a degree in architecture and urbanism from the Universidad CEU San Pablo in Madrid. Once Martinez moved to the United States and joined Stantec as a design coordinator, a lot changed. Stantec is comprised of 26,000 team members, with clients that include medium or large corporations, meaning more deadlines and less time for some of the traditional methods Martinez was used to. However, being a natural-born leader, Martinez knew he could bring his old-time craftsmanship to the daily modern processes at Stantec’s Miami design studio. He has continued to prove he is one of the team’s strongest designers and managers, and throughout difficult times in the pandemic, he never faltered in fostering a collaborative studio. He has leveraged Stantec’s remote technologies to spread his expertise to offices and projects across the country. He has quickly moved up the ranks, having recently earned a promotion to Design Manager.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT THIS YEAR?

This year I’ve been able to find my own place at the firm as a design manager who not only works with the business development group on really challenging projects in Miami’s urban core and Fort Lauderdale but also as a link between the younger generation and the most senior leaders at our office.

Editor-in-Chief

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
