The award recognizes leadership excellence, innovation, community involvement, and overall contributions to the local economy. In accepting the award, Moorhead said, “My boys left Pensacola after college for the bright lights of bigger cities. Now, thanks to a lot of work by a lot of people, Pensacola is not the place it was 15 or even 10 years ago. It has become a place that is attractive to businesses and growing families, and I am proud to report that all my sons have now returned to Pensacola, bringing my grandkids with them.”

He is Board Certified in Real Estate Law by the Florida Bar, is rated AV-Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell, and has been recognized as a Florida Super Lawyer for 15 years. Steve serves as the General Counsel for the Homebuilder’s Association of West Florida and is an active board member for Achieve Escambia, ReadyKids!, and the Greater Pensacola Chamber of Commerce.
