The Commonwealth Institute of South Florida (TCI) recently honored the state’s top 50 women-led businesses at its 11th annual luncheon at Jungle Island. Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, who has led the line since late 2014, took top honors: Lutoff-Perlo and Celebrity were named the number-one woman-led business in Florida for 2016.

Lutoff-Perlo has led many notable changes at Celebrity, including the launch of a new advertising campaign, hiring the first American female cruise ship captain and introducing the Solstice class of ships. 

To compile the ranked list, TCI sent a survey to over 4,000 women-led businesses, providing questions on the companies’ successes and how they leverage their distinct attributes to advance professionally. Kaufman Rossin & Co. collected and analyzed the information, identifying the top 50 businesses, as well as top 10 non-profits.
