BOB WARD

PRESIDENT & CEO, FLORIDA COUNCIL OF 100, ST. PETERSBURG

The Florida Council of 100 is a private, non-profit, non-partisan organization that promotes the economic growth of Florida and the economic well-being of Floridians. Ward, president and CEO since 2016, started in the public sector as an administrator and worked for the Florida House of Representatives for 19 years, including three tours as chief of staff and the last eight years as the clerk of the House.

EDUCATION Florida State University (BS)
SOMETHING SURPRISING I was adopted as an infant from Homes of Saint Marks in Texas. Recent DNA tests revealed I likely had a parent or grandparent who was 100% British or Irish. I also have distant cousins in northern India.
ALTERNATE CAREER? Either something outdoors dealing with nature or the land or a place where I’m silently serving others.
