More than two dozen business executives were honored Friday for their career achievements, exceptional leadership and community involvement at the South Florida Business Journal‘s 2017 Influential Business Women Awards.
About 400 people from throughout the tri-county region gathered for the ceremony at the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six in Fort Lauderdale.
