The Sun Sentinel Co. gives the Excalibur Award to business leaders in South Florida who have distinguished themselves and contributed to the improvement of the region's communities.
Each year, the Sun Sentinel Co. requests nominations for the Excalibur Award from the community. Previous Excalibur recipients and Sun Sentinel Co. executives selected the winners in four categories:
Broward Business Leader of the Year, Broward Small Business Leader of the Year, Palm Beach Business Leader of the Year and Palm Beach Small Business Leader of the Year
The nominees were judged on:
Their ability to build and innovatively develop their company.
Their ability to increase company profits or stock value for shareholders, enhance customer service or create jobs or career opportunities within their company.
Their contributions to the South Florida community, especially their commitment to actively participate as a leader in charitable and civic groups.
