South Florida Power Players Head to the Mountains for City National Bank’s Annual Networking Event

City National Bank of Florida returned to Colorado’s Rocky Mountains last month for the fifth edition of Aspen305, the highly anticipated, invite-only event for clients on July 10, 2021. Hosted at the St. Regis Aspen Resort, which is nestled at the base of Aspen Mountain, this year’s event also marked the official launch of City National Private, the bank’s new private banking brand. More than 200 people attended, making this year’s gathering the bank’s best-attended ever.

The guest list, which reads like a who’s who of Miami’s dynamic business and social landscape, was comprised of power leaders behind the companies that are fueling the sectors driving Florida’s economy; executives from City National Bank; and special guests.

The only event of its kind in Aspen for the South Florida community, attendees, hung up their business attire for a cocktail reception with premium food, drinks and entertainment.

“This has been a year unlike any other, so it was especially meaningful to return to Aspen for an in-person connection with our clients,” says City National Bank Private Client & Wealth Executive Steve Hayworth. “At City National Bank, we pride ourselves on offering relationship banking, and as we continue to grow, it has become an even bigger priority to strengthen our existing relationships, while offering a more robust suite of services along with our community connections and local decision making.”

“We launched City National Private as a platform for meeting the highly-customized needs of business owners and high net worth families,” Hayworth says. “There is a clear appetite for personalized service delivered by local-decision makers at a community-centric bank like CNB.”

Services provided through City National Private include Jumbo residential mortgages; specialized loan programs for professionals including attorneys, physicians, and accountants; wealth management and trust solutions; second-home and investment property loans; and financing for aircraft, yachts, and fine art.

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.
