Reflective of the state’s focus on a business-led approach to workforce development, CareerSource Florida’s recently appointed board member, Todd Rebol, brings to this position significant business and economic development experience.

Mr. Rebol is vice president of Banks Engineering and currently serves on the Enterprise Charlotte Economic Council and the Charlotte County Industrial Development Authority.

“As our newest member, Mr. Rebol joins a board committed to supporting Florida’s economic growth by strengthening our dynamic workforce,” said Britt Sikes, general manager of the Enterprise Accounts Division for DEX Imaging and CareerSource Florida Board Chairman. “We sincerely appreciate Gov. Scott’s selection of a business leader dedicated to our vision of making Florida the global leader for talent.”

CareerSource Florida’s board consists of business and government leaders charged with guiding workforce development for the state of Florida. During the 2015-2016 fiscal year, the CareerSource Florida network provided employment and career development assistance to 392,930 job seekers who successfully secured employment, as well as recruiting, hiring, training and related services to 80,728 businesses.

“Mr. Rebol brings exceptional professional expertise and a record of strong partnerships in his community to the state workforce development board,” said CareerSource Florida President and CEO Chris Hart IV. “We look forward to his contributions to ensuring Florida’s workforce has the skills to compete and businesses have the talent they need to thrive in today’s global economy.”
