Fort Lauderdale – Fisher Phillips announced today that Suzanne Bogdan, regional managing partner of its Fort Lauderdale office, was named an Influential Business Woman for 2017 by the South Florida Business Journal. This honor, bestowed upon only 25 women each year, is based on the individual’s impact on her profession and the community.
This year, the event is subtitled “Inspiring. Innovative. Influential.” A team of judges evaluates the many nominations received and selects 25 women that represent the best in business. Bogdan stood out given her leadership of the Fisher Phillips Education Group nationally, her mentorship of attorneys in the firm, and her commitment to the Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce.
She is, in fact, the Chair-Elect Designate for the Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce. She served nine years as general counsel and will assume the role of Chair of the Board in January of 2019 Bogdan was also the 2014 recipient of the Chair’s Award from the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce, in recognition and appreciation of her outstanding leadership and dedicated volunteerism for many years with the Chamber.
As chair of the firm’s Education Practice Group, Bogdan represents hundreds of private educational institutions nationwide in employee, student and board issues. Bogdan is a frequent presenter to both educational and corporate associations on all aspects of employment law and risk management in the employment context and also works with many accrediting agencies and school associations.
Bogdan is “AV” Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell. She earned her J.D. at the University of Miami School of Law summa cum laude. She was recognized as a South Florida “Top Lawyer” by South Florida Legal Guide and included in The Best Lawyers in America multiple times.
