Growth and Opportunity

David Denor | 3/7/2022

As our staff returns to the office after having spent almost two years working remotely, I realize how grateful I am for their accomplishments during the extraordinary times we’ve gone through.

From the onset of the pandemic, the team’s ability to pivot seamlessly — creating no interruption for our readers — has been impressive. Every one of our team members kept operations moving forward without missing a beat. I also would argue that during this time, FLORIDA TREND produced some of its best work. Each issue kept readers engaged, informed and up to date on business initiatives around the state.

The Regional Economic Profiles we’ve produced showcase the strength and resiliency of Floridians working to expand opportunity and prosperity throughout the state. Our morning and afternoon news alerts have kept our digital audience abreast of the most important news while our weekly eNewsletters — focusing on health care, education, real estate, small business and executive promotions — have delivered important updates, data and intelligence. In early 2021, we launched the weekly video newscast Florida Trend Business Beat every Friday, providing a summary of the week’s most important business news and information.

Florida Trend is a unique organization with an impressive and empowered staff of experts. Knowing what our team has accomplished during the past two years only makes me more excited about what we will be able to achieve in the years to come.
