Amerant Forms Partnership with the Florida Panthers

Amerant Bank is now the official bank of the Florida Panthers after agreeing to a multi-year partnership. The agreement includes the bank sponsoring team’s premium club seating that includes food, beer, wine, and soda, along with premium views of the stage for concerts or center ice for hockey games. 

“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Amerant and elevate their status to become the official bank of the Panthers and FLA Live Arena,” Shawn Thornton says, Chief Revenue Officer of the Florida Panthers. “Looking ahead, we are excited for Amerant Bank to offer their world-class customer service and banking experience to our fans, staff and the South Florida community.” 

Lounge 954, FLA Live Arena’s premium center-ice seating area, will now be known as the ‘Amerant Vault.’ The designated section features a dedicated wait staff, private restrooms, a private entrance to the arena, rotating premium food offerings and a mixologist to craft custom cocktails.

The partnership builds on Amerant’s current sponsorship as the Panther’s primary home and away game helmet advertiser. Amerant branding will continue to be included in virtual on-ice logo positioning and is now expanded to digitally enhanced dasher boards, among numerous other new features.

“Our goal is to be the bank of choice in the markets we serve,” Jerry Plush says, Chairman and CEO of Amerant Bank. “Aligning our company with partners with strong brands is an essential step in achieving that goal. We are delighted to expand our relationship with the Panthers and look forward to even greater success together.”

As part of the relationship, the Panthers and Amerant Bank will also partner to support local veterans with every save by a Florida goaltender generating $40 towards a veteran-focused nonprofit organization within the South Florida area.

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.
