For the fourth consecutive year, GL Homes President Misha Ezratti was named to Florida Trend’s Florida 500 as one of Florida’s most influential business leaders.
Florida Trend created this elite list to recognize and highlight the individuals who are helping to move Florida forward, and thank and honor them for their roles in ensuring our state continues on a positive path.
PRESIDENT, GL HOMES, SUNRISE
Ezratti started his career with the company in 2002. He held several positions within the organization and was appointed president in 2016. Founded in 1976, GL Homes is one of largest home builders in Florida, employing 600. The company focuses its philanthropic activity on homelessness, hunger relief, children and education. GL stands for “Good Luck.” The company, founded by Ezratti’s father, distinguished itself as one of the first builders to construct large numbers of homes while still allowing buyers to customize their houses.
