Delray’s Levenger appoints new CEO

Delray Beach-based retailer Levenger recently announced a new CEO.

Margaret Moraskie was appointed to the position last month after working as Levenger’s chief marketing officer, the company said in a release.

“I’m thrilled to take the helm of Levenger as we drive growth across all product categories,” said Moraskie. “Currently we are focused on the needs of those working from home and studying remotely. We are introducing beautiful products to enhance flexible and portable workspaces.”

Levenger was founded by Steve and Lori Leveen in 1987 and is known for selling fine home and office products such as portfolios, stationery, luxury pens, leather briefcases and bags and its award-winning Circa planners.

Moraskie worked as the senior vice president of consumer analytics and intelligence at Chico’s FAS. Before Chico’s, she worked for 20 years at Boston Proper in merchandising, inventory and ultimately marketing. She was also senior vice president and was named a Total Retail Top Woman in Cross-Channel Retailing finalist for leading marketing and e-commerce efforts. The release notes she is also a board member of the Women in Retail Leadership Circle and received a bachelor’s in marketing at Boston College.

“Margaret’s experience in marketing, merchandising and e-commerce brings a unique combination of in-depth knowledge and essential skills to the CEO role,” said Steve Leveen in the release. “We are excited that she will be leading the way to drive growth for our iconic brand.”

Added co-founder Lori Leveen, “Margaret brings great experience and intelligence to her CEO position, but also abundant energy and passion for our mission to support readers, writers and creative professionals in all fields. She cares deeply for the team and Levenger customers. Look for exciting new products and programs under her leadership.”

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.
