President honoree for Miami-Dade: Alex Rodriguez-Roig, Boys and Girls Club of Miami-Dade

Alex Rodriguez-Roig
Alex Rodriguez-Roig

Rodriguez-Roig came to the United States from Cuba at age five and believes in helping less-fortunate children by providing them hope, freedom and opportunities. He brings this belief to his position as president of the organization, a role he has held since 2003.

Early in his tenure, he concentrated on bringing financial stability to what was a 65-year-old organization. He diversified and expanded its $4 million annual funding sources, and increased its unrestricted cash reserves from just over three weeks’ to three months’ worth. Since that time, the organization has been thriving financially.

In 2015, he was honored with the Torch Award for Community Leadership by the Florida International University Alumni Association. In 2014, he was named a Lifestyle Media Group Up & Comer in the nonprofit category. He lives in Miami with his wife and children.

He focuses his practice on educational and commercial litigation, with particular emphasis on constitutional and governmental litigation, administrative and election law. In the 2000 presidential election, he was a member of the Bush-Cheney team and was involved in the recount litigation. He also served as co-chair of Jeb Bush’s 2002 gubernatorial campaign, and has contributed to Fox News and Forbes magazine. He was named by Gold Coast magazine as one of the “most powerful people in Broward County.” He has received the Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Award of Excellence, the American Diabetes Association’s Valor Award, and the Republican Party’s Spirit of Lincoln award.

He holds a bachelor’s degree and a law degree from the University of Miami. He has served as a director for UM’s National Alumni Association.

More than 25 years of health care staffing experience have helped Anenberg lead the largest division of publicly traded Cross Country Healthcare to the forefront of the health care-contingent labor industry. Under her leadership, Cross Country Staffing’s revenues have grown from $55 million to more than 10 times that by the end of 2015.

She joined Cross Country Staffing after a successful tenure at Procter & Gamble. She brought focus to Cross Country’s branding strategy and helped it pioneer managed-service programs in the health care labor space. Today, it’s one of the largest and most comprehensive health care labor service providers in the country.

Anenberg has been recognized as a leader of change by numerous publications, and was the subject of a story in Working Mother magazine about her progressive employment options for working parents. Additionally, she has been praised as a builder of high-performance company cultures, as evidenced by nearly a decade of awards and recognition by Top Training and Great Places to Work magazines.

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.
