There’s more to admire in Florida than the climate. Four Tampa Bay businesses made Fortune’s list of “Most Admired Companies” in the world for 2020.
Fortune ranked companies based on their revenue and how executives, analysts and directors rated those companies in their industry in a survey.
Publix Super Markets, based in Lakeland, ranked No. 48, and was first among “food and drugstores.” It was the only Tampa Bay company to crack the top 50.
Tech Data, based in Largo, also made the list. It came in No. 2 in the “wholesalers: electronics and office equipment” category, the same rank as the year prior. WellCare Health Plans, headquartered in Tampa, sat at No. 5 among health care companies, one slot higher than its ranking in 2019.
St. Petersburg’s Raymond James Financial also made the list. It was No. 3 among “securities and asset management” companies, moving up two slots from last year. For the full list, visit https://fortune.com/worlds-most-admired-companies/2020/search/.
