The Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce congratulates Jimmy Patronis on being named Floridaâ€™s Chief Financial Officer. Patronis is a Florida leader focused on making Florida more competitive, and he is dedicated to securing Floridaâ€™s future.
Governor Scott will officially announce heâ€™s appointing Patronis to replace Jeff Atwater, who is resigning from the job before his term is over to become a vice president at Florida Atlantic University.
“Jimmy Patronis has proudly served and represented the people of Northwest Florida for many years. I cannot think of a more deserving and hard working individual for the State CFO position. Our state’s future is in great hands and I wish him the best of luck,” said Kristopher McLane, President/CEO, Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce.
During his public service as a member of the Florida House of Representatives, Patronis was an advocate of pro-business, pro-jobs legislation and routinely scored perfect 100-A letter grades on the Florida Chamberâ€™s Legislative Report Card. Patronis, and his familyâ€™s small business, Captain Andersonâ€™s Restaurant, have been long-time members of the Panama City Beach Chamber.
