Yesterday, in celebration of the achievements of women who hold leadership positions across Florida, The Commonwealth Institute of South Florida (TCI) honored the state’s top 50 women-led businesses at its 11th annual luncheon at Jungle Island.
Celebrity Cruises’ president and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo took top honors: Lutoff-Perlo and Celebrity were named the number-one woman-led business in Florida for 2016, according to a statement from Celebrity.
“For the past eleven years, we have made it our objective to understand how so many smart, committed women run their companies, overcome challenges, and celebrate success, and then pass that inspiration onto every woman in the room,” said TCI’s executive director, Laurie Kaye Davis. “This event celebrates the achievements of these women and focuses on how they are leading the charge in companies across the state. Our top honoree, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, superbly exemplifies these qualities and we are thrilled to recognize her leadership."
