This immense, year-long research initiative by the editors of Florida Trend has resulted in a personal, engaging look at the state’s most influential business leaders.

“It’s an honor to be recognized on the Florida 500 amongst my peers and other influential business leaders in Florida,” said Massey, a recipient since the inception of the list in 2018. “There is a great deal of opportunity in our state, evidenced by so many different industries that were included. It is particularly rewarding to see so many exceptional business leaders from our own Central Florida community recognized.”
