Founded in 1916, the Florida Chamber of Commerce is the voice of business and the state’s largest federation of employers, chambers of commerce and associations aggressively representing small and large businesses from every industry and every region.
“The Florida Chamber believes a globally competitive business climate helps Florida businesses and families succeed,” said Mark Wilson, President and CEO, the Florida Chamber of Commerce. “Constantine brings a wealth of experience to our Board and we look forward to working with him and our members to grow private sector jobs, strengthen international trade and bring new industry to Florida.”
“We at Reed Smith see Florida as the strategic gateway to Latin America and the world overall. Given our firm’s global platform and the deal transactions we are seeing with our domestic and international clients, we want to continue to do our part to support Florida’s business leaders,” said Karides. “To achieve this, it is imperative that we also work with the Florida Chamber of Commerce and other leaders to ensure Florida’s economic future is secure.”
