Enterprise Florida CEO says agency is ‘worth saving’


As 43-day tenures on the job go, Chris Hart’s has been about as tough as you can get.

Hart, the new CEO of Enterprise Florida was once again testifying before a committee in the Florida Legislature today, trying to convince lawmakers to simply let his agency continue to exist. Hart took over in January with a mission to restore trust in Enterprise Florida, which had been criticized for excessive spending in the past.

It was weeks after he took the job that the Florida House proposed a bill to wipe Hart’s entire agency off the map.
