Broward College president Gregory Haile appointed to Federal Reserve Bank board

Broward College President Gregory Adam Haile has been appointed to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta‘s board of directors. Haile will serve as a Class B director, representing commerce, industry, agriculture, labor, and consumers. from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2023.

The appointment aligns to Haile’s goals at BC where he is focused on strengthening the college’s finances and improving the community’s economic development through the college’s new business model: Broward UP. The model aims to improve access to higher education for residents in six Broward County ZIP codes with disproportionately high unemployment rates, low education attainment, and low household income.

“I am humbled by this privilege of a lifetime, to serve on the board of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. The Atlanta Fed and Broward College not only have overlapping goals to maximize employment, but an overlapping spirit to seek equitable opportunity for all,” said President Haile. “This privilege is especially important as we enhance equity not only in  Broward County,  but across our great nation.”

“I’m pleased President Haile agreed to serve on the board of directors for the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta,” said Raphael Bostic, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. “Our board members play a vital role in providing essential insights on economic conditions throughout the District and helping to inform monetary policy deliberations. Their invaluable perspectives help us as we work to ensure the economy works for all our citizens and communities.”

Each of the nation’s 12 Federal Reserve Banks has a nine-member board of directors. The board of directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta oversee the management of the bank’s operations and recommends changes in the discount rate. Board members also contribute to the formulation of U.S. monetary policy through the economic information they provide the bank’s president.

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.
