City National Bank Invests in Central Florida Markets

City National Bank of Florida (CNB), headquartered in Miami, formed a partnership to become the Official Bank and Mortgage Partner of the Orlando Magic and Amway Center beginning in the 2022-23 NBA season.

“The Orlando Magic are thrilled to forge an exclusive partnership with City National Bank of Florida,” Magic CEO Alex Martins says. “With City National Bank’s continued commitment growth in Central Florida, we’re excited to assist them with their continued success. As a Champion of the Community, we share a commitment to our community and look forward to seeing the partnership flourish through the many collaborations planned to benefit Central Florida.”

City National Bank will be one of the team’s seven “Champion of the Community” (COTC) partners through this partnership. Other COTC partners include Walt Disney World, PepsiCo and Florida Blue. City National Bank is the second-largest bank based in Florida, with more than 1,000 employees statewide and more than $24 billion in assets. It will be the first partner whose logo will appear on the Magic’s warm-up shirts.

“As an Orlando native and long-time Magic fan, it is an honor to partner with a premier NBA franchise that exemplifies teamwork, trust, and commitment to community,” Erik Weiner says, CNB Central Market president. “The Magic and CNB share similar values, and we look forward to making a positive impact in the Central Florida community.”

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.
