The award, which is presented annually by Publishing Executive and Book Business, honors and celebrates leadership and innovation in the rapidly evolving magazine and book publishing industries.

West Palm Beach-based StarGroup International was nominated by one of its distinguished authors, Palm Beach artist and writer Sandra Thompson.

Brenda Star commented, "I'm thrilled to be in the running for such a prestigious award. It is always an honor when a company's work is recognized by its peers. We have a great team that makes extraordinary contributions to every book we produce."

For over two decades the company has maintained a roster of high-caliber researchers, writers, editors, proofreaders, designers and printers, among the best in the industry. The company also provides public relations and marketing services.

Recently published books include "Pam Beach Faces and Places" (partially underwritten by The Breakers), and the 50th anniversary book for Nova Southeastern University.
