The Miami Herald CEO Roundtable continues with a new group of participants selected from among South Florida’s top business leaders.

For the next six months, the CEOs will give their views on the most important civic and economic issues of the day. We’ll also ask them to share personal stories of their successes and setbacks and tips on how to succeed in the business world. (The next cohort will be chosen in October-November.)

The CEOs come from a variety of companies and nonprofits — both big and small — across Miami-Dade and Broward counties. The industries they represent include education, technology, law, the arts, banking, accounting and the arts.

Do you have a question you’d like to ask the CEOs? Please email Miami Herald staff writer Rob Wiles at rwile@miamiherald.com.
