Florida Trend’s Florida 500 highlights the 500 most influential executives in different economic sectors throughout the state. Listed among them are Bowman Brown, Chairman of Shutts & Bowen’s Executive Committee and Co-Chair of the firm’s Financial Services practice, and Harvey E. Oyer III, a partner in the firm’s Real Estate practice.
Those included on the annual list of Florida’s Most Influential Business Leaders have a wide sphere of influence and “embody the growing diversity of Florida’s business community.” Selections are organized based on broad economic categories from the U.S. Department of Commerce, with the number of influential executives in each category roughly proportional to that category’s share of Florida’s state GDP. According to the publisher, all listed “possess the capacity to have an effect on the character, development or behavior of someone or something.”
