After 21 influential years at helm of Florida High Tech Corridor Council, Randy Berridge steps down


Randy Berridge, a long respected name in economic and development circles across the I-4 Corridor, will retire Wednesday from the Florida High Tech Corridor Council after serving as its head since 1996. The group, based in the Orlando area suburb of Heathrow, was formed as an economic development initiative of three of the country’s largest research institutions — the University of Central Florida, the University of South Florida and the University of Florida. The council’s mission is to grow high tech industry and innovation through partnerships that support research, marketing, workforce and entrepreneurship.
