Governor Scott: Gray Swoope Has Carved a Lasting Imprint on Florida’s Economic History

Today, Governor Scott made the following statement regarding the announcement of the departure of Gray Swoope as Florida Secretary of Commerce and President and CEO of Enterprise Florida.

Governor Rick Scott said, “Gray has created the jobs legacy and brand that EFI has today. Four years ago, Florida wasn’t even at the table for major economic deals, but Gray turned all that around. Now we are a leader for job creation projects- and most importantly, Florida is often the winner! Florida has created over 715,000 jobs over the last four years and our unemployment rate has dropped from 11.1% to 5.8%. Gray has carved a lasting imprint on Florida’s economic history that has put us on the path to surpass Texas and take up the mantle as the number one state for job creation.”
