Development Specialists, Inc. Moves Its South Florida Office to Downtown Fort Lauderdale

The national firm specializes in turnaround management and financial advisory services.

Development Specialists, Inc. (DSI) has strategically relocated its South Florida office to downtown Fort Lauderdale. The office space leased by the firm spans over 3,300 square feet and is located at 500 East Broward Blvd., Suite 1700. This central location in downtown Fort Lauderdale highlights the company’s dedication to maximizing value for its clients throughout the region, as the move from Cypress Creek Rd. underscores the firm’s long-term commitment.

“Moving to this new location puts our firm right in the middle of South Florida’s robust and growing business community and closer to the professionals we do business with,” Joseph Luzinski says, Senior Managing Director at the Florida office. “While the current market trend is to take on less office space or even go fully remote, we went in the opposite direction. We leased more space because we prioritize face-to-face collaboration for idea sharing, creative problem solving, and staff training.” 

DSI employs three senior professionals, Luzinski, Yale Bogen, Sr. Managing Director, and Daniel Stermer, Managing Director, who work from its Fort Lauderdale office. Additionally, they have a team of support staff. DSI is recognized as a top provider of financial advisory and management consulting services. Their services include corporate finance, restructuring advisory, forensic accounting, litigation support, expert testimony, and third-party fiduciary services.

DSI, established over 45 years ago, has been in South Florida since it opened its first Florida office in 1988. As one of the first turnaround firms in the U.S., DSI also has offices in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, South Florida, Wilmington, Madison, Columbus, Ohio, and London.

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.
