Elizabeth Dvorak | Founder & CEO of Workscapes
As we kick off our women of influence initiative, we would be remiss if we did not highlight our very own CEO & Founder Elizabeth Dvorak.
Elizabeth took the helm in building the now powerhouse regional brand of Workscapes from conception in 1998, which at the time had six employees and now has over 110 in 2022. In 2013 Workscapes became a dominant regional player by acquiring five Herman Miller locations in Orlando, Jacksonville, Tampa, Miami, and Fort Myers. The charting value from $2 million to $60 million upon acquisition. Tampa becoming the office furniture giant’s headquarters leading the market. Elizabeth gives much of the credit to her business partner and husband, Dick Dvorak, her Executive Leadership Team, and exceptional staff.
Apart from her business acumen Elizabeth makes it imperative to cultivate a philanthropic culture within her work tribe by encouraging her employees to be involved in causes that they are passionate about. By setting an example and leading the way with her own portfolio of charitable involvement with organizations such as Leukemia Lymphoma Society, Boys & Girls Clubs, and Metropolitan Ministries. She serves on the Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation Board and is a member of the CEO Council of Tampa Bay.
Being a woman of influence is a responsibility not everyone can adorn. It takes certain qualities and perseverance to become one, which you can read about here. Elizabeth is a pioneer and trailblazer in the industry for aspiring women to look up to. Workscapes is proud to be under her leadership.
