The common stock of Amerant has commenced trading on the NYSE under its current ticker symbol “AMTB.” Before the shift, Amerant’s common stock was trading on Nasdaq, which continued until the market closed on Aug. 28. To mark the occasion, Amerant’s Senior Leadership Team and Board of Directors rang the Opening Bell at the NYSE on Aug. 29

“We are excited to announce the transfer of our company’s stock listing to the NYSE, a significant milestone in our journey as a public company,” Jerry Plush, Chairman and CEO of Amerant. “This strategic move reflects our confidence in the NYSE’s market infrastructure and global visibility, which will enable us to strengthen our position, expand our reach, and create long-term value for all of our stakeholders.”

Amerant Bancorp Inc. has been serving as a bank holding company since 1979. Amerant operates through its primary subsidiary, Amerant Bank, N.A., alongside its other subsidiaries, such as Amerant Investments, Inc., Elant Bank and Trust Ltd., and Amerant Mortgage, LLC.

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.
