The Orlando Business Journal names three Tars among the city’s most effective and dedicated leaders.

Every year, the Orlando Business Journal recognizes the best business leaders in Central Florida. This year’s inaugural C-Suite Awards have identified 20 individuals as the region’s top leaders and outstanding performers in their areas of expertise, as well as for their contributions and commitment to their professions and the local community. Among the honorees are Stan Jones ’00MBA, Alexandra Robertson ’11 ’12MBA, and Teresa Sturges ’05MBA.

Honorees are nominated by their peers and are chosen based on a strong sense of leadership and commitment to their communities. To be eligible, nominees must be based in Central Florida and hold the following titles or equivalent positions in the local market: CEO, COO, CFO, or CMO.

This year’s Rollins honorees bring decades of industry-shaping expertise to the table as leaders in health, tech, and architectural development.
