Welcome to the SFBW Up & Comers awards section, celebrating the top achievers under the age of 40 throughout South Florida. This is the third year for our Up & Comers awards and the popularity has grown.
SFBW has quickly become South Florida’s source for inside, in-depth business news and analysis. Our Up & Comers awards focus on the achievements of young professionals both in the workplace and in their charitable and civic contributions. Many of them have already made their mark in senior-level positions or are on the fast track to do so.
These are the leaders who will help South Florida’s economy continue to grow. They are helping drive key business sectors, including accounting, banking/finance, construction, education, health care, hospitality, law, marketing, real estate, retail and technology, and they are active in an array of leadership roles for charities and professional associations.
The professionals recognized in the following pages were nominated by members of the community. We specifically asked to learn about those who have demonstrated an overall commitment to South Florida. We received hundreds of nominations for Up & Comers through our website. The results were evaluated by our editorial team, led by Editor-in-Chief Kevin Gale, who has three decades of experience as a business journalist in South Florida.
The winners in each category were announced during a celebration on June 16 at The Venue Fort Lauderdale in Wilton Manors.
A big thanks to our sponsors who are instrumental in enabling us to produce the Up & Comers awards program:
- Presenting Sponsor: MassMutual Financial Group South Florida
- Gold Sponsor: Ytech International
- Silver Sponsors: Comcast Business and JM Lexus
This fall, we will have our third annual Apogee Awards, which honor C-level executives. For more information, click on the events tab at SFBWmag.com.
SFBW wants to do more than just cover South Florida. We want to be a part of it. We invite you to join us in the celebration of the best our community has to offer.
