Greg Anderson joined JAXUSA Partnership as Vice President of Business Development on March 23. In this role, he is managing financial and professional services projects and clients interested in relocation and expansion business in the seven-county region.
Financial services is one of the five industries identified as a target through JAXUSA’s five-year strategic plan due to the region’s assets such as infrastructure, available talent and low cost to doing business. Companies providing back office and call center jobs in the professional services industry also thrive due to these assets found in the region’s business environment.
As a 35-year veteran of the financial services industry, Greg has extensive experience that make him a natural fit for the JAXUSA role. Over the course of his career, he has served in positions overseeing global cash management and commercial lending as well as in executive leadership for several banking institutions. Most recently, Greg was the community development director for TIAA Bank managing the company’s efforts in business development, the non-profit community and government relations.
A proven advocate for economic development, in his previous role as a two-term Jacksonville city councilman and former council president, Greg partnered with JAXUSA often to help pass legislation that would announce eight projects encompassing 2,100 jobs during his presidency as well as countless others while in office.
“Through the attention our region continues to see from the expansion and relocation of businesses in financial services, this industry continues to be a target for job creation and capital investment,” said JAXUSA President Aundra Wallace. “With Greg’s experience in both the industry and government leadership, we are fortunate to welcome him to the team as we advance our business development efforts in financial and professional services.”
Greg holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Georgia with a concentration in Finance and a Masters of Arts in Liberal Studies with a focus on Leadership Studies from Duquesne University.
