Gov Scott: New EFI Head Bill Johnson Will Help Florida Become Global Leader for Jobs

Today, Governor Rick Scott released the following statement on Bill Johnson becoming the new Executive Director of Enterprise Florida.

Governor Scott said, “I am thrilled that the Enterprise Florida Board has voted for Bill Johnson to become the new Executive Director. For over thirty years, he has worked with local, state and federal officials to get projects done in Florida to benefit our families – and I know he will continue to work with elected leaders at all levels of government to bring more opportunities to Florida and ensure we continue to win job creation projects.

“Bill did a stellar job running PortMiami – one of the nation’s top container cargo posts and the busiest cruise port in the world- and has overseen the massive Deep Dredge project which will generate around 30,000 jobs in our state. His vision to expand and grow PortMiami will allow Florida to take advantage of increased trade opportunities with global markets and enable our state to grow as the leading hub for trade and logistics. Bill has a clear record of creating opportunities in our state and is laser-focused on our goal to make Florida the global destination for jobs. I am confident he will help us on our mission to beat Texas to become the number one state for job creation.”
