Meet the Faces of Orlando 2017—Part One

In this series we will meet the faces behind some of the city’s most notable businesses.


The Faces of BALANCED BEAUTY IN PLASTIC SURGERY – Charles E. Newman, Jr, MD and Dzi-Long Newman, PA-C, Newman Plastic Surgery

Understanding the intricacies of aesthetic balance sets Newman Plastic Surgery apart.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Newman, along with wife and physician assistant, Dzi Newman, have built their Orlando practice on the principles of Balanced Beauty. Their approach utilizes the integration of technology, science, and function to complement each other to achieve aesthetic harmony.

“Patients sometime say things like, ‘just fix it’ or ‘just make it go away,’ requesting procedures they believe will miraculously eliminate their specific problem area.” Dr. Newman cautions that “just fix it” procedures don’t always yield the results truly desired because the modification can throw off the balance of the patient’s overall appearance. “The nose pictured in the magazine may look great on a particular celebrity but it won’t necessarily work aesthetically with your eyes, cheeks, jaw line, etc. Breast enhancement and body contouring can restore proportions that may have changed after having children. However, breasts that are too large can overpower a woman’s frame, making her appear heavy. Our goal is to help patients claim whole beauty. It is not about erasing or replacing individual parts but rather approaching the patient in a comprehensive manner so we can uncover, enhance, and refine each individual’s aesthetic potential.”

The Face of SOCIAL ENTERPRISE – Wayne Elsey, Elsey Enterprises

Wayne Elsey, founder and CEO of Elsey Enterprises, has changed lives round the world as a businessman, international humanitarian and social entrepreneur. He began his social enterprise work after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, after which he founded an organization and grew it to over $74 million in revenue in less than five years and placed shoes on the feet of over 17 million people affected by natural disasters, including Hurricane Katrina and the earthquake in Haiti.

Elsey is a nationally recognized authority in leadership, and topics related to philanthropy, social enterprise, motivation, business and personal success. Elsey’s life work is dedicated to business projects that have a humanitarian impact because he believes profit and philanthropy are not mutually exclusive ideas. He also seeks to educate and inform those interested in social impact, including philanthropists, entrepreneurs, companies and organizations on the latest trends through media interviews, public speaking engagements, consulting and as an author.

The Face of COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE – Hooman Hamzehloui, Masters Realty

Hooman Hamzehloui has a face that might look familiar to you—he’s been a lifelong Central Florida resident for 41 years. However, if you don’t recognize the face, it will be very difficult to forget his name, which has become synonymous with high-profile real estate transactions in Central Florida that have had a huge impact in the communities that he has served. In 2015, his sale in Polk County became the $200 million dollar Walmart Distribution Center. This transaction helped create 625 jobs with an average annual salary of $42,500. Two of his recently closed deals will lead to a 1,200-room luxury convention hotel and a 260-room Tru by Hilton hotel. Both hotels will cost over a half a billion dollars and will create hundreds of jobs and tax revenue for many years to come.

His commitment to exceeding his client’s highest expectations while delivering extraordinary results with unrivaled service has resulted in a long and loyal client list that is second to none.

“Hooman has an incredible eye for identifying the best development deals before anyone else, and his ability to negotiate the best deals puts him in a league of his own,” said Kevin Skorman, VP of Skorman Development Corp. “Having one of the first Hilton Tru hotel brands adds another unique element to our city, and we’re honored to be a part of it.”

“Hooman helped us strike a great deal on a great site, and we are extremely pleased with this acquisition,” said Randall Greene, partner of DCS Real Estate Investments. “The Orange County Convention Center is in major need of more high-end hotel rooms. We look forward to accommodating that need on this strategically located site in the world’s number one tourist destination.”

Hooman’s diverse client list includes renowned public figures, celebrities, hedge funds, private equity funds, publicly traded companies, national builders, national hoteliers and top business CEOs. It’s no surprise that one record-breaking sale after another has earned him referral after referral. And because of his success, he’s been featured in The New York Times, Orlando Sentinel, Orlando Business Journal, Dupont Registry, Growth Spotter and Broker Agent Magazine.
