The Florida Chamber of Commerce announced Friday that it appointed Orlando Health CEO David Strong chair of the Central Florida Regional Board.
“David Strong is a highly experienced business leader that fully understands what it takes to lead Florida to a new and sustainable economy,” said Florida Chamber President Mark Wilson. “In his role as a Florida Chamber Regional Board Chair, Strong will help lead the Florida Chamber’s mission to secure Florida’s future.”
Bob Grammig, who chairs the Chamber’s board of directors and is a partner at lobbying firm Holland & Knight, picked Strong for the job.
In his new role, Strong will represent the Florida Chamber in the Central Florida business community and connect area business leaders with resources to help make the Central area—and Florida—more competitive.
“Serving as the Florida Chambers’ Central Florida Regional Board Chair is an exciting opportunity,” Strong said. “I am eager to unite Central Florida’s area business leaders behind the Florida Chambers’ pro-business initiatives.”
Strong has been the president and CEO of Orlando Health since mind-2015. Before joining the $2.8 billion health care network, he worked as the chief operating officer of UNC Health Care.
In addition to his work with the Chamber, he serves as a member of the CHRISTUS Health Audit and Finance & Strategy Committees, chairs CHRISTUS St. Vincent, and is a member of the Florida Hospital Association board of trustees.
