It’s never an easy job to lead companies to success in the midst of stiff competition, a growing battle for top talent and rising costs to do business.

But several of Orlando-area firm’s leading executives have managed to overcome the challenges to generate profits and provide great products and/or services, earning the respect of their workers, clients and community.

This year, Orlando Business Journal will honor 24 of the highest-level executives at some of Central Florida’s well-known or emerging companies who have had significant achievements in their careers in the past year, have a strong record of innovation, outstanding performance in their work and are actively involved in our community.

See who made this year’s list of honorees in the photo gallery.

The 2016 CEOs of the Year honorees will be recognized on Thursday, Oct. 13 at an awards ceremony at the Hilton Orlando. Visit our website to register for OBJ’s 2016 CEOs of the Year Awards luncheon and an opportunity to network with these top executives.
