FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (May 18, 2009) – William Berger, senior partner at Greenspoon Marder, P.A., took home the “Business Leader of the Year” award from the 2009 Business Awards Luncheon, presented by the Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce on Friday, May 15. The program honors local business leaders who have made substantial professional and civic contributions to the community. Governor Charlie Crist made a special appearance, via a taped message, to personally congratulate Berger and thank him for his service.
“To be named a top business leader, especially this year in this economy, is an incredible honor,” said Berger. “You know, I always say that I’m a businessman practicing law, rather than a lawyer practicing law. There’s a big difference there.”
Berger joined Greenspoon Marder as a senior partner in 1995. He co-chairs the firm’s litigation department and is instrumental in the firm’s marketing and business development efforts. Greenspoon Marder has tripled in size over the past 10 years and is still growing. Berger is largely responsible.
“Long-lasting business is built on solid relationships,” said Berger. “I never go out looking for clients. I look for ways to help others. What goes around comes around.”
Berger is a Palm Beach County resident, where he is active in various community endeavors including The Economic Council of the Palm Beaches, Business Development Board, Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce, Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches and the North Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce. In August 2007, Governor Charlie Crist appointed Mr. Berger as a Trustee of the Palm Beach Community College. Berger is on the Board of Advisors of ICABA, a multi-media organization fostering opportunities for black professionals and entrepreneurs. In addition to his civic involvement, Berger serves as co-chair of HomeSafe’s The Classic!, an annual golf classic which benefits abused, neglected and AIDS-infected children.
