Florida Chamber Series on Free Enterprise: Husein Cumber
By: Florida Chamber of Commerce
In the latest Florida Chamber Series on Free Enterprise, Husein Cumber, Executive Vice President of Florida East Coast Industries and Florida Chamber Northeast Regional Board Chair discusses the vital role partnerships between the business and education sector play in Florida’s future workforce – as well as the importance of a strong university and college system in Florida.
“Specialized skills are really needed in this world,” said Cumber, “I think gone is the time where you can have a general skillset and then go out to the workforce and navigate to a job. We are learning that as technology begins to infiltrate every industry, having a specialization is so important.”
