WilsonMiller, a planning, design, and engineering firm that recently opened a Jacksonville office, announced that its Chief Executive Officer, Alan Reynolds, AICP, was selected to become a member of the Florida Council of 100, a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan organization.
Here’s what WilsonMiller’s regional manager of planning services for Northeast Florida Dave Tillis had to say about the appointment:
“We recently opened our Jacksonville office and have 10 additional offices in Florida with hundreds of employees, so I think it is fitting that Alan has been selected to be a part of this council and help the state’s economic growth and quality of life.”
The Florida Council of 100 was formed in 1961 at the request of Gov. Farris Bryant to provide advice on key Florida issues from a business perspective. The council has continued its advisory role to the governor over the years and today exists to promote the economic growth of Florida and improve the economic well-being and quality of life of its citizens. The council was the first of its kind in the United States and works in close harmony with the governor, the chief justice, the Legislature, as well as with private organizations to achieve quality of life improvements for the people of Florida.
CEOs invited into the council represent a cross-section of key business leaders in Florida. Members are expected to have a stake in Florida and in the achievement of the council’s mission; have achieved a high degree of success and recognition in their business, profession or public service career; have demonstrated involvement in public policy issues; and possess the personal qualities of character, personality and leadership ability, and the desire to advance the council mission.
