Miami, Florida Executive Search City Snapshot:

Welcome to Miami. Bienvenido a Miami. Miami is a densely populated city on the southern tip of Florida. Miami is often referred to as “Magic City,” “The Gateway to the Americas,” and “Capital of Latin America.” Miami is known for its large Latin American population, its heavy Hispanic cultural influences, and its concentration of international businesses. It is also known for its high-rise buildings, its warm beaches, and its seemingly infinite fleet of cruise ships. Over the years, Miami has produced many notable entertainers, such as: actors Andy Garcia, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, William H. Macy, Eva Mendes, Sidney Poitier, and Wilmer Valderrama; musicians Steve Aoki, DJ Khaled, Gloria Estefan, Flo Rida, Enrique Iglesias, Pitbull, Rick Ross, Stevie B, and Trick Daddy; and athletes Jose Canseco, Steve Carlton, Frank Gore, Mitch Richmond, Alex Rodriguez and Ivan Rodriguez.

For over a thousand years the Tequesta tribe lived in what is now Miami. In 1565 Pedro Menéndez de Avilés landed in Biscayne Bay and claimed the area for Spain. Menéndez and the Tequestas got along peacefully. Menéndez even invited the Tequesta chief’s brother back to Spain. In 1567 Menéndez returned to the Tequesta village with a group of Jesuit missionaries. Everything was going great until Spanish soldiers executed the chief’s uncle. The missionaries were forced to leave the area in 1570. The Spanish did not set up another mission in Biscayne Bay until 1743, but by then smallpox had wiped out most of the Tequesta population.

In the early 1800s, British and American settlers received land grants in the Miami area. Seminole Native Americans and runaway slaves soon made their way down to Southern Florida. The Second Seminole War (1835-1842) between Seminole tribes and the US resulted in complete annihilation of Seminoles in the Miami area. After the war William English chartered the “Village of Miami” on the south bank of the Miami River.

The Third Seminole War lasted from 1855 to 1858 and deterred many settlers from moving to Miami. In the late 1800s a few settlements such as Fort Dallas, Lemon City, and the Brickell family trading post popped up along the Miami River. In 1891, Julia Tuttle purchased 640 acres on the north bank of the Miami River. She noticed the area was prime real estate and ripe for expansion. Tuttle convinced railroad tycoon Henry Flager to extend the Florida East Coast Railway to the Miami area and build a resort hotel. Miami became incorporated as a city in 1896, with a population of just over 500. Julia Tuttle is the only woman to have founded what is today a major US city.

Many people flocked to Miami during the Florida Land Boom of the 1920s. The city’s population exploded from 29,549 in 1920 to 110,637 in 1930. Over the past 115 years, the Miami metropolitan area has grown from around 1,000 to over 5.5 million residents. This rapid growth earned Miami the nickname “Magic City.”

The 1926 Miami Hurricane and the Great Depression hurt Miami’s economy, but WWII got it back on track. Since its foundation, Miami’s population has increased with each US Census. In the second half of the 1900s, many Cuban refugees came to Miami to escape Fidel Castro and the Communist Party of Cuba. It is still common for Cuban refugees to arrive in Southern Florida by raft. Today Miami is an international, financial, and cultural center.

Population: 399,457
