About CEO Direct Alumni
Since the inception in 1994, the Partnership has proven to be the region’s organization for business attraction marketing, public policy advocacy, research and leadership. The CEO Direct program engages participants in the Partnership’s Regional Model for Prosperity and the four focus areas we are working on including 1) the Regional Business Plan for Tampa Bay; 2) quality places (livable communities & transportation); 3) public policy & advocacy; and 4) a broader advocacy and leadership model. Developing regional leadership is one of the Tampa Bay Partnership’s core priorities and the stakes are higher than ever before. While investment dollars are vital, leadership drives the success of our short and long-term objectives. CEO Direct is a program to ensure that we have the leaders engaged to reach our potential.
