Event Sponsor Spotlight: The Flower Bazaar

The Flower Bazaar, located on 5th Street in South Beach between Michigan and Jefferson, opened in 1994 in its current location. The once tiny design studio continued to transform over the years, and in 2011, a French interior designer and decorative painter, Thierry Adam, took over the company.

Since then, it has delivered a sophisticated, cosmopolitan flair to all their events and customers. ImageThe Flower Bazaar sources flowers constantly from the most trusted and reliable sources all over the world. That in turn allows them to deliver emotion and exquisite design to the events and weddings they design, and to the manifestations of affection that are entrusted to their designers every day. Their philosophy is simple, “to be the best, offer exceptional product and create beautiful floral gifts that convey originality and artistic design.” Image

Along with recently hosting a “Coffee with the Chamber,” The Flower Bazaar will soon be celebrating 20 years in Miami Beach, and they are gearing up for “additional growth with new personnel additions in the marketing and sales area, dedicated to commercial and hospitality services,” says partner, Leonardo Lanaro.

Visit them at 920 5th Street Miami Beach and check out their website www.theflowerbazaar.com

Chamber Honors Miami Beach City Manager Jimmy Morales at 92nd Annual Gala

City Manager Jimmy Morales

The Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce (Chamber) will honor four pillars of the community while celebrating its 92nd Annual Dinner Gala and Silent Auction hosted by media personality Ana Quincoces and Chamber Chairman and SVP of Gibraltar Private Bank & Trust Michael S. Goldberg. Over a 1,000 attendees are expected to gather on Saturday, May 10, at the glamorous Fontainebleau Miami Beach for the event that will showcase the city’s contribution to film production throughout the years. Party goers will enjoy an entertaining evening of surprises along with an auction, dinner, dancing, and much more. “This year’s award recipients depict the strengths of Miami Beach in their own unique way,” said Goldberg. “From running an internationally recognized educational institution, to pioneering Ocean Drive, to showing leadership and passion through a long career of City and County leadership and to being a leader with civic organizations which contribute in elevating those in need at the same time running one of the premiere private banking and wealth management companies – these honorees are true pillars of the community.” The honorees include: Dr. Mark Rosenberg, President of Florida International University, as the Lifetime Achievement honoree; David Wallack, Owner of Mango’s Tropical Café, as the Excellence in Tourism honoree; Jimmy Morales, City Manager of the City of Miami Beach, as the City National Bank Hi-Tides Outstanding Achievement Honoree; and Adolfo Henriques, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Gibraltar Private Bank & Trust, as the Distinguished Service honoree. City National Bank Hi-Tides Outstanding Achievement Honoree Jimmy Morales has nearly 20 years of experience in government serving as a local attorney, administrator and public servant. His significant roles in government administration and elected office have earned him a reputation as an advocate for citizens and ethics. Now, the accomplished attorney is committed to bringing his passion for executive leadership and serving others to his hometown as the city manager for Miami Beach. Born and raised in Miami Beach, Morales graduated as salutatorian from Miami Beach Senior High School. In 1984, he graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University and was inducted as a member of Phi Beta Kappa. He went on to graduate magna cum laude from Harvard Law School in 1987. The City National Bank Hi-Tides Outstanding Achievement Award was created two years ago to honor an outstanding business professional who began in Miami Beach and whose achievements have extended into assisting the greater economy.

Letter from the Chairman February 14, 2012

 The Forbes and Bloomberg Business-week lists are great sources, but for me, some of the greatest business inspirations come from our very own backyard. This was recently evident during the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce’s Champions of Business Award luncheon. Here at the Chamber, we’ll all about hard work, but also recognition of the accomplishments reaped from that hard work. This year’s awardees included:

* Aletha Player, of FPL, who received the annual James McDonnell Outstanding Board of Governor Award

*  Warren Zinn, Owner of Warren Henry Auto Group, who received Aaron B. Perry Innovation in Business Award

*  The Shockett Family, who accepted the Past Chair Award in recognition of William “Billy” Shockett, Past Chairman of the Chamber Board from ’82-’83.

Furthermore, the Chamber introduced the first annual 2012 Warren Henry Small Business of the Year Award in honor of a business owner who has grown his/her company over the years, while maintaining an ever-important strong presence in giving back to the community. Carefully selected by our Chairman’s Circle, this year’s winner was Brian Scheinblum, the Co-founder and President of Cambean Hospitality. As owner of the Carlton, Clifton, Majestic, and Lords South Beach at Nash hotels, Brian’s work through Cambean is so important in helping to maintain the glamour and attraction of our Art Deco District for tourists and Miamians alike.

In true Chamber fashion, the sold-out event demonstrated our utmost support for these exceptional individuals. In addition, Past Chairmen Aaron B. Perry, Alan Randolph, Michael Milberg, Gerald Schwartz, Ira Giller, Anthony ”Tony” Noboa, Bart S. Golberg, Leon A. Manne, and Lucia Dougherty, along with Past President and CEO of the Chamber, Bruce Singer, were all in attendance to further champion the organization they helped build.

It is a privilege to have such strong leaders not only within our community, but within the Chamber family. We have much to learn from them and I pledge Chamber support to help them – and you – further expand their/your businesses within Miami and beyond. Congratulations and well-deserved!

At your service,

Jason Loeb
