As Santorio exits Broward Health, who will be stepping in?

The shoes of Gino Santorio are tough to fill, but Shane Strum, Gov. Ron DeSantis’ chief of staff since 2018, will become Broward Health‘s new CEO on March 8. (Santorio will take over as CEO at Mt. Sinai Miami Medical Center on Feb. 11.) The top job likely comes with a big pay hike: Santorio earned nearly $993,000 a year, while Strum’s annual salary was $180,000.

Strum had said he wanted to return to his native Broward County where he’d lived before working for the governor in Tallahassee as chief of staff. The 51-year-old has served as director of corporate and government relations at Nova Southeastern University, vice chancellor of Keiser University and senior vice president at Memorial Healthcare in Hollywood. He was also chairman and member of the South Broward Hospital District Board.

Broward Health moved fast: It was reported that Strum was a finalist for the position little more than a week ago. According to a release, the North Broward Hospital District Board of Commissioners voted unanimously for Strum to become the next CEO yesterday after a special meeting to interview candidates.

“The Board has been focused on finding a leader who can build upon the momentum Broward Health has gained in the past two years. We were pleased to interview such an exceptional group of candidates today,” said board chair Nancy Gregoire in the release. “As we look to the future, we know the road ahead will require bold vision and the ability to form collaborative relationships with industry and community partners. We believe Mr. Strum can successfully lead our health system forward.”

The board will negotiate employment terms with Strum later this month. Strum’s new position will become official in March.

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.
