The 2017 Beacon Award Winners are exceptional achievers who have played important roles in Miami's evolution as a business destination, both historically and currently.
This year's winners were chosen by the Judges' Committee, which included the Miami-Dade Beacon Council Chair, Past Chairs and Chair-Elect. The evaluation criteria included: job creation, capital investment, commitment to innovation and impact on Miami-Dade's business community.
"We are honored to shine a light on the people who drive our economy and make Miami a global business destination," the Miami-Dade Beacon Council Chair, Jaret L. Davis, said.

About the Beacon Awards
The Beacon Awards are a component of the current One Community One Goal (OCOG) initiative to diversify the local economy and promote higher-paying jobs. OCOG was updated from the 1998 original founded and co-chaired by the late Jay T. Malina. Proceeds help fund the Miami-Dade Beacon Council's efforts on behalf of County businesses to promote the community's assets to the world, diversify our economy and assist local companies with expansion needs.
