ANDREW ZUCKERMAN, 48

President / Zuckerman Homes

Coral Springs

Business: Following his grandfather's lead, Zuckerman runs a residential building business with two brothers, David and Steven, his 77-year-old father, Mel, and son Ryan. Properties run from the upper-$200,000s to $2 million.

Projects: About 250 homes built in five communities during 2005

Employees: About 50

Turf: Southeast and southwest Florida

New vistas: Recently acquired 3,000 acres in southeast Georgia

Managing employees: "Our belief is family comes first. We're not a clock-puncher. We expect you to do your job. We want people to want to come to work. Once they join us, they never leave."

Family-business edge: "We eat lunch together every day. We can make quick decisions. Larger companies, public companies can't."

Weekends: "I'm a huge Dolphins fan. We go tailgating to the Dolphins' games."

But no armchair, please: He's quarterback of the flag-football team the Distinguished Gentlemen, comprised mostly of twentysomethings. "I'm the old guy."
