Enterprise Florida


Gray Swoope

In March 2011, Gray Swoope brought more than 25 years of economic development experience to Florida as its new commerce secretary and president & CEO of Enterprise Florida Inc., the state’s principal economic development organization. Swoope splits his time between Orlando, Enterprise Florida’s base, and the capitol, where his office is only two doors down from Governor Rick Scott’s. This proximity is vital to his focus on job-creation. Before joining Enterprise Florida, Swoope was executive director of the Mississippi Development Authority.
