Head Football Coach, Florida Institute of Technology
Steve Englehart, the architect of Florida Tech’s new football program, is preparing the Panthers for their inaugural season in Fall 2013 in one of the country’s toughest NCAA Division II football conferences, the Gulf South Conference. When the team’s first practice season began this fall, 120 student-athletes participated – of which over 80 were from his first recruiting class.
Coach Englehart has served as a mentor to many of his players, teaching them the importance of being active in the community, helping others and serving as role models.
“I believe a good leader has to create a family-like atmosphere, where people feel comfortable to communicate their ideas. We put in place a plan of attack with everything we do. As we move through the plan, we constantly evaluate, so we can improvise and adapt to situations along the way.”
Managing Partner, Berman Hopkins Wright & LaHam CPAs

Under Hayes’ leadership they have leveraged expertise including export compliance services, federal government contractor compliance, international tax, benefit plan audits and strategic partnerships.

CEO, Brevard Physicians Network (BPN) and Executive Director, Medical Practitioners for Affordable Care (MPAC)
Brenda Radke joined BPN in July 2008 and reorganized the organization to offer individual providers a back office solution to remain independent and profitable. To date, BPN has 278 multi-specialty providers who provide medical services to over 30,000 Medicaid patients, 10,000 Medicare Advantage patients and thousands of commercial patients.
Last year, BPN’s sister company, MPAC, received approval by CMS/Medicare to be one of only 154 certified Accountable Care Organizations in the U.S. to service the Medicare Fee-For-Service beneficiaries in the local community. They are now managing over 15,000 Medicare beneficiaries.
“The future of healthcare is ever-changing and will continue to expand over the coming years with (Baby Boomers) aging into Medicare and the increase of people becoming eligible for Medicaid due to tough economic times. Both BPN and MPAC have committed both human and capital resources to meet these challenges. High quality, cost effective healthcare is not just a statement but our company mission.”
