Lifestyle Media Group, SFBW named Small Business of the Year

Lifestyle Media Group and South Florida Business & Wealth were named a Small Business of the Year by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce on Friday.

LMG, which includes SFBW and 10 lifestyle publications, was the winner in the New Small Business Honorees Category. SFBW was launched in September and Lifestyle Media Group was purchased less than four years ago by a group led by Chairman and CEO Gary Press.

The New Small Business category had 14 honorees. The other finalists recognized on stage were Circles of Fun and attorney Marty L. Elberg’s Circle of Life Legal Services.

Legacy Bank was the winner in the Established Small Business Category, which had 16 honorees and three finalists. Legacy Bank of Florida, founded in 2006, is a locally owned and managed community bank with offices in Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Delray Beach and Pompano Beach.

The other finalists were Lightship Media and Oriental Rug Care.

Tomorrow’s Rainbow was honored as nonprofit organization of the year. The organization uses miniature horses as part of a grief counseling program for children who have lost a close loved one.

Abby Mosher, founder and executive director of Tomorrow’s Rainbow, was also honored as the Small Business Person of the Year.

 Mosher founded the organization in the aftermath of a traffic accident that killed her husband Paul. She and her son Dustin received grief support via their insurance company, but Mosher founded Tomorrow’s Rainbow after realizing that many children did not have that benefit.

The non profit category had four honorees and the other finalists were Rebuilding Together Broward County and National Christian Foundation South Florida.

BIOGRAPHY

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.
