Ultimate CEO Duffell on the importance of listening


    Andrew Duffell arrived at the Research Park at Florida Atlantic University in 2011 to oversee the 94-acre park with its 350,000 square feet of office, R&D, and manufacturing space.

    Since then, Duffell has helped land and retain many of the park’s 38 high-tech, health care, aerospace, and life science tenants, while connecting them with each other and FAU faculty and students. Under his charge, occupancy has swelled from 55 percent to 87 percent – and garnered national recognition in the process.
