We sat down with Florida Chamber Board of Directors Member Eric Green, CEO of JAXPORT, to answer three important questions:
Q: What is one piece of advice you would share with your peers?
A: Continue to be a student in your profession. Be committed to learning and studying your craft every day. If I could pick a second piece of advice, it would be to surround yourself with great people. From professional work to personal relationships, teamwork is essential.
Q: What keeps you up at night?
A: Ensuring our operations stay up and running safely so that we can continue to provide high-wage jobs and supply chain security for the people of Florida. A lot of businesses and consumers depend on JAXPORT to be open. It’s a responsibility we don’t take lightly.
Q: How has the Florida Chamber impacted your organization?
A: The Florida Chamber connects us with influential decision-makers around the country and the world. This platform helps spread our message that Florida is a great state for business and that our seaports are efficient, reliable, and open for business.
