An inside look at the SFBJ's 2022 Ultimate CEO Awards 

The South Florida Business Journal honored 15 top CEOs from across Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties for their leadership skills, business impact and community outreach at the 2022 Ultimate CEO Awards held Thursday at The Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort.

Over 230 people attended the event for a night of celebration where the business leaders shared their wisdom on company culture, career aspirations, and the key factors to business success.

The ceremony also serves as an annual fundraiser, as the CEOs are asked to donate $75 to their local United Way chapter for every 15 seconds, they exceed the two-minute acceptance-speech limit. As is often the case, some of the CEOs kept within their time limit but announced large donations to the nonprofit anyway. By the end of the event, the CEOs had raised $29,550for United Way. In total, the Ultimate CEO Awards program has raised more than $150,000 since the awards inception in 2016.
