Here are the priorities for the new Tampa Hillsborough EDC chair


Growing the life sciences industry is a key goal for Dr. Alan List, president and CEO of Moffitt Cancer Center and the new chairman of the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corp.

List, officially elected chairman during the organization’s annual meeting at Amalie Arena Tuesday night, outlined several priorities he expects to tackle during his term — one in which he anticipates greater national focus on the Tampa Bay area.

“In the coming year, we have an unprecedented opportunity to position Tampa and Hillsborough County on the national stage and make dramatic leaps forward towards our goals,” List said. “We already have momentum, but several recent developments are moving us to a much greater spotlight.”
