BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Peter Baronoff, chairman and CEO of Boca Raton-headquartered Promise Healthcare was honored Thursday evening with the Sun Sentinel Media Group’s annual Excalibur Award for Palm Beach Business Leader of the Year.
The award recognizes for-profit business leaders in South Florida for their success within the business community and their commitment to the values of innovation, company growth and community contribution. Recipients were selected by a panel of past winners and Sun Sentinel Media Group senior management.
“Mr. Baronoff exhibits integrity and excellence within the healthcare industry,” said Howard Saltz, Publisher and Editor-In-Chief of the Sun Sentinel Media Group. “We had a lot of great nominations this year, but he stood out among the rest as not only a business leader, but as a mentor and philanthropist in Palm Beach County.”
Although much of his time is dedicated to building the recognized and respected Promise Healthcare hospitals, Baronoff also serves on the Board of Trustees with the Boca Raton Regional Hospital and devotes time to several charitable organizations including youth scholarship programs and the Boca Raton Police Foundation. In early 2017, Baronoff received the Outstanding People And Leaders (OPAL) award by The Rotary Club of Boca Raton.
On Thursday evening, Excalibur Award recipients were honored at a private reception at Boca Raton Resort & Club. Other 2016 award winners include:
- Charles L. Palmer, Broward Business Leader of the Year
- Angelo Elia, Broward Small Business Leader of the Year
- Tarra Pressey, Palm Beach Small Business Leader of the Year
“I am honored to be recognized as Palm Beach County’s Business Leader of the Year,” said Baronoff. “I wouldn’t be where I am today without the support from my family and the hard work of every employee throughout the Promise Healthcare system.”
