Enterprise Florida website

The business-centered agency, Enterprise Florida has found itself a new leader. Former Executive Director of South Florida’s Water Management District and General Counsel to Governor Rick Scott, Pete Antonacci is taking over the reins. 

The former right-hand of the Governor finds himself at the table with Rick Scott once again. Pete Antonacci is taking over as CEO of the business-recruiting agency Enterprise Florida. The agency is known for building relationships between the business world of Florida and the political one, in Tallahassee.

It has been under the helm of interim director of Mike Grissom since March after the abrupt departure of former CEO Chris Hart. Antonacci still has to be approved by the agency’s board, which Governor Scott chairs.
