USF Has a Strong Presence on List of Influential Business Leaders

Leadership, alumni, trustees and donors made the list of both Tampa Bay Times and Tampa Bay Business Journal's most influential and powerful business leaders in the region.

TAMPA, Fla. (Jan. 8, 2016) – Just in time to kick off the new year, both the Tampa Bay Times and the Tampa Bay Business Journal developed a list of the most influential business leaders in the Tampa Bay region.

The Tampa Bay Times “Pressing Forward: 25 Most Influential Business Players in Tampa Bay” is a collection of business leaders…” whose skills, experience, passion and force of personality make them influential. As in capable of moving a specific industry or part of the regional economy forward in a positive way.”

The Tampa Bay Business Journal’s “Power 100” is a new list created by the TBBJ’s publication staff after asking the questions…” Who’s using their money, their connections or their positions to drive business in Tampa Bay? Whose influence extends beyond their own company and their own industry? When the mayors in Tampa, St. Petersburg or Clearwater need something done, who gets the call?”

The University of South Florida had a strong presence in both publication lists. Below are administrators, alumni, board members and donors who earned a place in one or both of those lists.
