Guest Speaker: Kelly L. Smallridge, President and CEO of Palm Beach County’s public/private economic development agency, the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County (BDB)
+ Background: Smallridge has worked for the BDB for 32 years, serves as the longest tenured economic development President in the State of Florida, and has a solid track record in facilitating some of the largest job creation projects for Palm Beach County. In 2013, Governor Rick Scott awarded Kelly with the Governor’s Ambassador Medal recognizing her hard work in creating jobs in Palm Beach County. She oversees all operations of the Business Development Board which is one of only two Accredited Economic Development Boards in the State of Florida. Her aggressive style in landing relocations and expansions has led to big announcements of jobs for this county from companies like United Technologies, Amazon, ADT, Pratt & Whitney, G4S, Fed Ex, Sikorsky Helicopters, Aldi, and TBC Corporation to name a few.
