Orlando, Florida – October 1, 2020. George Cheros, National Center for Simulation’s president and CEO, was named to Florida 500, a special publication that highlights the 500 most influential executives in different economic sectors throughout the state of Florida. He was also recognized last year in his first year as CEO.

“I’m very humbled by this recognition alongside so many of Florida’s committed and passionate leaders,” Cheros said. “My time with NCS has been a wonderful opportunity to better understand and get to know the Central Florida region, and more specifically, the modeling, simulation and training industry, which is such a huge economic driver in Florida.”
Cheros told Florida 500 that “working with the military, academia, and our industry members makes this role the most gratifying position of my career.” He was appointed as president and CEO last year, after serving as the COO for seven years.

“Our board of directors is extremely grateful to have George leading NCS and helping us grow our membership and the modeling, simulation, and training (MS&T) industry. In his position as president & CEO, we have solidified our role as an MS&T leader locally, nationally, and internationally,” said Mary Trier, NCS board of directors chairwoman. “We’re excited to see where his leadership takes us in the future.”

The Florida 500 is decided after a year-long research initiative by the editors of Florida Trend and has resulted in a personal, engaging look at the state’s most influential business leaders.
