United Way Miami Honors Florida East Coast Realty Chief Operating Officer Austin Hollo

He previously served as the Past Chair of Professional Development for the organization.

At United Way Miami’s recent Tocqueville Society Grand Reception, the Grant Family and Florida East Coast Realty (FECR) Chief Operating Officer Austin Hollo were celebrated for their philanthropic efforts. Hollo was presented with the Inaugural Next-Gen Philanthropist Award for his contributions. In 2023, he became a United Way Miami’s Board of Directors member and longstanding Young Leaders Executive Committee member.

“Giving back to the community has always been a high priority for me and my family,” Hollo says. “The power and strength of our community lies with the support that individuals give to a common cause. We liken philanthropy to paying back a community that has given us so much opportunity. We believe that supporting United Way Miami enables us to make the greatest positive impact across the community.”

The United Way Miami serves as a driving force in the community by responding to emerging needs and positively transforming people’s lives. With its unique role, the organization helps to ensure that the residents of Miami-Dade have access to high-caliber education and opportunities to lead healthy and financially secure lives.

In 2009, FECR welcomed Austin, the third generation of the Hollo family, into the company. His responsibilities at FECR include focusing on the development of upcoming projects, marketing and positioning existing properties, coordinating property management and leasing activities, overseeing the company’s strategic vision, day-to-day administration and operations, and business development. Additionally, he plays an integral role in all financing efforts, is responsible for the company’s risk management and insurance portfolio, and evaluates any real estate acquisitions and investments.

Hollo also serves on the Advisory Boards for Florida International University’s Tibor and Sheila Hollo School of Real Estate and Center for Leadership, the Board of Directors and Funding Development Committee for the Miami-Dade Beacon Council, and the Board of Directors, Executive Committee, and New World Center Committee (Vice Chair) for the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce. Hollo was selected as one of Brickell Magazine’s Top 20 Professionals Under 40 for 2017, Miami Today’s Achiever Profiles and Book of Leaders Honorees for 2020, and South Florida Business and Wealth’s Up and Comer Award Recipients for 2021.

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.
