“You constantly want to be upgrading your peer group. You want to hang out with smarter, more successful, more interesting, higher-character people because you will rise or fall to the level of your peer group.”

—Scott Galloway, public speaker, author, entrepreneur, on Twitter


“If you can demonstrate that you’re a resilient employer, that you’ve got a strong balance sheet and can weather economic storms, and that you’re prepared to listen actively to your workforce, that puts you 30-Love up in the war for talent.”

Andy Wilde, global chair of financial services at Edelman (“From villain to victor, the finance sector moved past the last crisis to conquer this one,” by Devin Banerjee, editor at large, business and finance, at LinkedIn)


“Miami doesn’t have the infrastructure to support a tech hub yet. There’s no Stanford. There’s no Sand Hill Road. Your university just doesn’t have a world class engineering school. And so what is your actual plan to make this real? Because that is critical to employees.”

—Kara Swisher, The New York Times’ Sway podcast with Miami Mayor Francis Suarez

“Do I think we need a Stanford, an M.I.T., a Harvard? Absolutely. I’m not going to sit here and tell you that we don’t. Am I talking to Northeastern? Am I talking to Stanford? Yes, I’m talking to all of them. We need to change our reputation in this space tomorrow. And the only way you can do that quickly, I think, one is to build up the already existing institutions. I think that takes a lot of time. I think the other way is to attract institutions that already have their reputation, and that can be done quickly.”

—Suarez, responding to Swisher

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.
