Favorite quote: Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty.

Fun fact: My husband and I decided to decorate our house with Street Art Murals. We now have 9 murals in our home and looking to expand.

How do you unwind after a long day of work? Music is my sanctuary. There is a good song for any mood.

What challenges have you faced in your career, and how did you overcome them? I began having leadership responsibilities at a young age. Overcoming misconceptions and assumptions of my abilities has always been a challenge. In order to overcome these perceptions, I must first be patient and willing to prove myself through actions. Then the most impactful approach has been to give credit to my team members for their accomplishments and take responsibility for when things aren’t as successful as planned.

What has been the most monumental moment of your career thus far? Being trusted with the quality and efficiency of our services and maintaining the highest rating globally for 10 consecutive years.

Who are your role models? My late professor, Dr. David Prosperi at Florida Atlantic University while obtaining my Master’s Degree. Because of his inspiration, I pushed myself further than I thought possible. My CEO, Maureen Shea and Founder & Chairman Tom Shea. They have always shown leadership through example and supported me throughout my career.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten? Try something new. This is a simple comment and statement but one we aren’t always willing to do especially when we are new to our careers. Many opportunities can come from trying something new.

What advice would you give a young woman at the start of her career? If you know you have achieved what is needed for a role or recognition remain confident in that conviction and communicate your perception. When something doesn’t seem right its most likely time to move on, you are in control of who you want to work with daily. Never stop learning, that doesn’t mean you have to keep studying in a formal sense but always challenge yourself to be learning and the simplest way to do that is to try something new.

How has being a woman impacted your career? It was harder to continue to thrive towards leadership when I had my first child. I am grateful that I was supported by our leadership during that time and again when I had my second child. That support blossomed into my ability and willingness to be the single financial support for my family. That personal home dynamic has since created further opportunity for me in personal development and career longevity.

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.
