Celebrity Cruises is part of the Royal Caribbean group. It has 14 ships that sail to seven continents and employ 20,000 people around the world. “While most of our employees are on our ships, we employ many in South Florida — both in Miami-Dade and Broward counties,” Lutoff-Perlo says. The company is building a new “campus” at the Port of Miami. Lutoff-Perlo is on the boards of United Way Broward, Best Buddies International and AutoNation.

SOMETHING SURPRISING I am a BIG football fan. For me, there are only two seasons. Football season and waiting for football season. During football season, I plan my entire travel schedule around games to ensure I am either home for them or someplace I know I can watch my team play.
