Florida’s top jobs recruiter is stepping down from his post.
At the end of February, Gray Swoope will resign. He’s the state’s Secretary of Commerce as well as the head of Enterprise Florida, the state’s lead economic development agency.
Swoope was one of the few top officials who served during Governor Rick Scott’s entire first term.
In a statement following Swoope’s announced departure, Scott hailed Swoope for creating “a jobs legacy” and for making “major economic deals” happen for the state.
