Meet the newest Tampa Bay Partnership Investors
Special note from Stuart L. Rogel, President & CEO of the Tampa Bay Partnership:
I’m excited to welcome a number of new faces to the Tampa Bay Partnership since the start of our 2012 fiscal year. These business leaders bring time, talent and treasure to the Partnership’s efforts and the Tampa Bay region. I would like to extend a special welcome and thank you to our newest investors:
John Harding, Florida Hospital Tampa Bay Division has joined at the Council of Governors level and is serving on our Republican National Convention (RNC) Committee.
Alec Cunningham, WellCare has also joined at the Council of Governors level. A member of the WellCare team will be participating in our seventh CEO Direct Leadership Program, kicking off next month. His organization has plugged into our ONE BAY Healthy Communities initiative with the WellCare Community Foundation sponsoring www.HealthyTampaBay.com and last week’s ONE BAY Healthy Communities Forum.
Colleen Chappell, ChappellRoberts has joined at the Board of Directors level and is very involved with ONE BAY: Lifelong Learning’s Graduate Tampa Bay initiative, our Tampa Bay Shines campaign, and more.
Chris Nicolas, Premier Beverage joined at the Market Makers level last week and looks forward to finding where his contributions will have the biggest impact at the Partnership.

In addition, I announce with great pleasure that Bob McCann, Executive Vice President of Nielsen, has increased their investment to the Board of Directors level. Bob is a critical asset to our organization and our region. Having a truly Super Regional presence with Nielsen, a global information and measurement company, Bob has played an important role in strengthening the relationship with our Central Florida partners as Chair of our Super Region initiatives. He also sits on the Board of Directors, Executive Committee, and as Chair of the Regional Business Plan Foundational Working Group.
