“It’s really all about leadership. Our most important factor is being able to communicate with all the leaders in our community.”

Danny Martell, Executive Director of the Economic Council of Palm Beach County, Inc. visited the Florida Chamber Foundation’s studio recently to discuss how Palm Beach County has been successful in diversifying and growing its economy.
“We’ve taken the opportunity to say, we need to be able to find other industries in this community in order to make sure we continue to grow.”
Martel credited the county’s success to business and civic leaders working together to drive job growth and secure the future of the area.
“We have a mission and that mission is to make Palm Beach County the best place to do business not only in the state of Florida, but in the country.”
Martel also add his thoughts on why businesses are interested in relocating and expanding in the state of Florida.
“Our recipe is simply a great tax environment and a tradition of low taxes in this state and we continue to stick to that tradition. And, it’s just a fantastic lifestyle.”
A diverse economy is crucial to Florida’s continued success. Join us at the Future of Florida Forum, September 28-29, in Orlando, where the Florida Chamber Foundation will bring together leaders who are working to secure Florida’s future. Register today.
