PRESIDENT & CEO, GRAYROBINSON, TALLAHASSEE

GrayRobinson is a full-service law and lobbying firm with 14 offices in Florida and one in Washington, D.C., with more than 250 attorneys and 500 employees. The firm, a heavyweight in the state’s political and legal scene, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2020. Cannon, who became the firm’s president in 2019, started his career at GrayRobinson and went on to become a state legislator and Speaker of the House from 2010-12.

EDUCATION University of Florida (BS, JD)
CIVIC EFFORT In the wake of COVID, we pivoted to raising money and making online contributions to local charities within each community where we have an office. We were grateful to be able to keep carrying out our founder’s vision: “When you build your community, you build your firm.”
SOMETHING SURPRISING I used to be a DJ.
SOMETHING NEW I recently started adding cold water immersion and the Wim Hof method into my health routine, which is known for boosting the immune system, increasing energy, sharpening your focus, etc. It takes a little getting used to, but it’s totally worth it.
ADMIRES The entire Disney organization because of their relentless focus on quality, innovation and guest service and satisfaction.
SABBATICAL TOPIC Psychology, both because people are almost infinitely complex and diverse and because mental health is a subject I believe needs elevating in the public dialogue.
