Fort Lauderdale’s Walk of Fame Inducts Water Taxi President

William “Bill” Walker, the president and CEO of Water Taxi, was recently honored with an induction into the City of Fort Lauderdale’s Walk of Fame. The recognition honors individuals who have made long-lasting and positive impacts in the community. The Walk of Fame looks for residents and local leaders who have contributed to the quality of life for Fort Lauderdale residents and visitors to foster the spirit of the community and bring positive recognition to the city while encouraging people to visit Fort Lauderdale as a destination of choice. Each honoree received a commemorative paver on the “Walk of Fame,” located on the beach along the east side of A1A at Las Olas Boulevard.

“Water Taxi has worked closely with our city for decades to provide our citizens with safe, affordable and fun access to the beach and other destinations via our beautiful waterways,” said Walker. “Therefore, this honor has a deep and special meaning to me and my company. I am immensely grateful and humbled.”

Walker purchased Water Taxi in 2007 after a long career as a marine executive. The Water Taxi fleet of 13 boats provides transportation on Fort Lauderdale and Broward County waterways, reaching as far north as Bokampers/Shooters, east along the Fort Lauderdale Beach and west to Downtown/Las Olas and south to Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort.

In addition to serving as a board member of the Las Olas Association, Walker is the current chair of Winterfest and is involved with the Marine Industries Association, the Marine Advisory Council, the City of Fort Lauderdale Marine Advisory Board and the Fort Lauderdale Beach Council. He enjoys offshore sailboat racing, snorkeling, recreational boating and skiing in his spare time. Walker is also a proud father of a daughter who works in the medical field and a son who works in project construction.

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.
