Momentum, but scant progress on projects ■ VCC LLC pulled four building permits Nov. 1 for $5.5 million of construction at the St. Johns Town Center. VCC, whose Atlanta office will manage the construction, will add 263 parking spaces at 5221 Big Island Drive — a $2.17 million project — and build a $1.5 million two-story, 19,400-square-foot shell retail building at 4828 River City Drive; a $1.47 million singlestory, 16,600-square-foot shell retail building at 4818 River City Drive; and a $377,176, 850-square-foot open canopy at 4814 River City Drive. The permit for the parking lot lists the engineer as Ka Tai Peter Ma of Jacksonville, and the architect for the other projects is Bartlett Hartley & Mulkey Architects PA of Charlotte, N.C. VCC was expected to start work Nov. 4 and complete construction of the two retail buildings in fall 2014 when the neighboring Nordstrom store opens.

Some see need for more action in regard to deals



t’s been more than three months since the city officially entered negotiations on six Downtown Jacksonville development projects that were said to be in critical stages — but for a variety of reasons, there’s been minimal progress on most of the deals. On July 24, the Downtown Investment Authority authorized the city’s Office of Economic Development to enter negotiations on the projects, a move driven by several factors: ■ The authority’s CEO, Aundra Wallace, was not yet in place and the board didn’t want the projects to stall before he started. ■ Some of the deals were said to have “momentum” behind them, and needed immediate attention. ■ The authority needed to provide a list of priorities to the

City Council, which was in budget negotiations and deciding how much funding to allot the DIA. The six projects are the Laura Street Trio, the Old Main Library, the Bostwick Building, the Shipyards, a storefront beautification program and a proposal to build apartments and retail on the former Sax Seafood site. DIA Chairman Oliver Barakat said the projects were handed off to OED to send the message to City Council that there were prospective deals in the pipeline that may need incentive dollars. “Every large deal I’ve done comes down to momentum,” said Barakat, a senior vice president with CBRE Group Inc., “and the removal of incentive dollars while that’s happening could kill a deal.” When the deals were handed over to OED, Paul Crawford, deputy executive director, said the two that were farthest along were the Laura Street Trio and a proposal by a Milwaukee developer to build an apartment-andretail development on the cityowned site of a failed seafood restaurant in LaVilla. The developer of the Trio is still sorting out the financing of the redevelopment of those

buildings, and the other developer is still in the due diligence phase, Wallace said. Though the projects were never officially handed back to DIA, Wallace, who took the helm Aug. 19, said he’s leading the discussions on all of them. After a major push from business and civic leaders, the DIA was created as an independent authority in 2012 to spearhead revitalization efforts, advocating for an urban renewal that would be a boon to the entire city’s economy. But little has happened since the board met for the first time in October 2012, and many are

hungry for progress, though the City Council slashed the board’s funding to $4.1 million for funding Downtown projects during the budget process. The board’s current focus is its redevelopment plan, which is not only legally required but also provides a framework for revitalization. Until the plan is complete, all of the board’s funding for projects has to be approved by the City Council. But some are already calling for action. “There’s a lot of talk, there’s a lot of fluff, but people are waiting to see something happen,” City Council President Bill Gulliford said. “Do something, even if it’s small.” Councilman Greg Anderson, chairman of the council’s finance committee, said he has met with the developer of the Laura Street Trio. Anderson said he expects to start seeing more progress on Downtown projects now that Wallace is in place. “I am impressed with Mr. Wallace. He seems to have vision and personality, to begin to move us forward,” Anderson said. “There’s no doubt they got out to a slow start.”

■ Hawkins Construction Inc. of Tarpon Springs will build a $1.2 million day care center in OakLeaf Plantation. The contractor received a city of Jacksonville building permit Nov. 5 for The Learning Experience at 220 Oakleaf Village Parkway. The new center will have 10,000 square feet. The listed architect is Octavio L. Lima of Parkland, southwest of Boca Raton. For more information, contact the contractor at 727-938-9719.

The Laura Street Trio

Developer: SouthEast Group, led by managing partner Steve Atkins Proposal: The redeveloped Trio, at the corner of North Laura and West Forsyth streets, is to include two restaurants, one in the Marble Bank Building and one on the ground floor of the Bisbee Building, which will also include a Courtyard by Marriott hotel. There are also plans for a new building with a rooftop bar and a parking garage. The most recent figure for redevelopment is $40 million. Status: DIA CEO Aundra Wallace wrote in an email that “the mezzanine financing structuring entails a few layers of funding sources, which require far more due diligence and negotiations than a single source funded project.”

Councilman Greg Anderson said incentives have been discussed, but the developer, SouthEast Group, has not yet made a formal request. “When I met with the developer, they seemingly still had some more work to do in terms of the financing package itself,” Anderson said. Anderson said the incentives discussed involved the DIA’s fund — $4.1 million — and the city’s historic preservation trust fund, which has $5.5 million. He said the discussions were too preliminary to say whether the developer would ask for the entirety of both of those funds. “I would want to be very careful for an ask that would essentially take all of that money in one fell swoop,” Anderson said. “There are a number of projects that probably ought to be considered.”

For more information, contact the contractor at 813-964-3885.

The Shipyards

Developer: Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan has publicly expressed an interest in developing the vacant riverfront property on Downtown’s Northbank. Proposal: Details have been scarce, but Khan has said the plans could include a sportsand-entertainment theme, and Jaguars President Mark Lamping has said that the team considers the Shipyard’s the “front door” to EverBank Field. Status: An Office of Economic Development spokeswoman


wrote in an email that “It is too premature to report any development on this concept. We value the reported interest by Mr. Khan and we look forward to hearing more from him.” Wallace wrote in an email that the DIA “is utilizing its redevelopment workshops and the community forums to solicit input regarding the highest and best use for the Shipyards property. “That information will be the basis for DIA to develop and recommend a strategy for the property.”

PROJECTS: Bostwick deal stalled, but old Main Library plans moving ahead FROM PAGE 3


The Bostwick Building

move forward on hearings to determine the building’s fate, said Councilwoman Lori Boyer, committee chairwoman. Two conflicting items — the owners’ appeal of a demolition permit denial and a request by the city’s historic preservation committee to designate the building a landmark structure — have been deferred more than a dozen times since the beginning of the year. The city, per a standard process in code compliance, would have waived the fines for Klempf, provided he renovated the property and brought it up to the code, Boyer said. The Bostwicks have been fined $100 a day for code violations since February, and that amount continues to accrue. Wallace wrote in an email that once Klempf closes on the building, “the DIA will be in a better position to finalize any prospective incentive package for the project.”


Developer: Jacques Klempf, CEO of Dixie Egg Co. and partner in Ovinte Wine Lounge at the St. Johns Town Center, and partners Fraser Burns and Chad Munsey Proposal: Renovate the property at 101 E. Bay St. — widely known as the “jaguar building” for the murals of a big cat painted on its boarded up windows — into an upscale restaurant with a rooftop bar. Status: After extending his contract to buy the building multiple times since April, Klempf on Oct. 8 allowed his contract to expire and is attempting to renegotiate with owners Val and Karl Bostwick. The deal hinges on a lawsuit filed against the Bostwicks by an adjacent property owner over water intrusion issues — Klempf has said since the deal became public that he would not close on the property until the lawsuit was settled. If the sale is not a done deal by Nov. 19, the city’s land use and zoning committee will

or demolition would begin in December and possibly not until early 2014. Littlepage said the fund has not engaged the city in any incentive discussions, though that may be a possibility down the road. She said the fund is considering new market tax credits, which are awarded to job-creation initiatives in low-income areas, as one financing tool. Wallace wrote in an email that “the DIA has had limited meetings regarding this project. The developer/owner is finalizing the project budget and will engage the DIA as needed.”

Storefront beautification

— to improve spaces to make them usable for “first- and second-floor retail, restaurant and entertainmentthemed business” in city-designated Downtown commercial corridors — but no funding was designated for the program. “We’ve been meeting with organizations that are interested in these types of efforts,” Wallace wrote in an email. Wallace said he is aware of an existing city program that funds storefront buildouts on a case-by-case basis. “We anticipate having a program presented to the DIA board in the future,” he wrote.

Developer: Jessie Ball duPont Fund Proposal: The fund has proposed a $20 million renovation of the Haydon Burns Library into a nonprofit office complex, after acquiring the building for $2.2 million. Status: The project is in the conceptual phase, spokeswoman Mary Kress Littlepage said, with the fund working with KBJ Architects on space planning to see how many office tenants are plausible in the space, and how much rent that would generate. At the earliest, she said, interi-

Developer: Milwaukee-based Gorman & Co. Proposal: Gorman & Co. Inc. has submitted a development proposal to the city with two possibilities for the site at Davis and Union streets. The city owns the property after a planned restaurant there — for which the city helped provide a $1.9 million construction loan — fell through several years ago. Gorman’s first proposal would reopen Arthur Street between West Union and West Beaver streets and include three, three-story buildings, open space and parking. Two of the buildings would line either side of Arthur Street and the third would be along North Jefferson Street. The residential component, which the developer has named the LaVilla Enterprise Lofts, includes 105 apartment units, 24 of which are “live-work units” designed

for work-from-home entrepreneurs. The proposed unit mix includes 39 one-bedroom units, 51 two-bedroom units and 15 three-bedroom units. The plans also feature 9,000 square feet of commercial space (3,000 square feet per building) and 115 parking spaces. The second proposal would add a 6,000-square-foot restaurant and another three-story building with 35 apartments, for a total of 140 apartments. Status: Hana Eskra, Gorman’s Florida market president, said she has a meeting with city officials on Nov. 13 but would not provide any other details. Aundra Wallace wrote in an email that “the project is in the pre-development phase and the developer is continuing its due diligence. Upon completion of the developer’s due diligence, the developer and the DIA will be in a better position to discuss any prospective incentive package for the project.”



Sax Seafood site

Developer: Multiple Proposal: Developer Mike Langton, managing partner of L.B. Jax Development LLC, called for a grant program for the construction and renovation of storefront spaces in early 2013, as one possible use of the $ 9 million Mayor Alvin Brown originally pegged for revitalization, which was slashed to $4.1 million during the budget process. In Langton’s vision, the city would provide a dollar-for-dollar match up to $50,000 for tenant buildout. Status: Under the 2006 Downtown Development Business Investment Program, the city can give grants or loans up to $250,000 for beautification | @JBJAshley | 265-2219


Creating a vision for Downtown W Ashley Gurbal


hat kind of Downtown could Jacksonville really get behind? One with some sort of tourist attraction, apparently. The Downtown Investment Authority held a public forum on Nov. 4 to gather citizen input for its community redevelopment plan, and tourist attractions topped the list. The DIAis legally required to come up with the redevelopment plan, which is also seen as a framework for revitalization and slated for completion in early 2014. The board will be holding public workshops on the plan every two weeks until it’s completed.

he business development trip to London during the recent Jacksonville Jaguars game there is likely to lead to two companies announcing they are bringing 500 jobs to Jacksonville in the next six months, civic leaders said Nov. 4. JaxUSA, the economic development arm of Jax Chamber, came back with six or seven leads, said its president, Jerry Mallot, who declined to name the companies. According to a list of meetings obtained by the Business Journal, the delegation met with several solar powerrelated firms, a software company and aviation-related businesses, among others. The announcements probably won’t be with companies the city contacted for the first time on this trip, Mallot said. This visit, however, pushed things forward because of the involvement of high-level political and business leaders. “The Jaguars elevated the stage, giving us a window we otherwise wouldn’t have had,” he said. Not all of the firms were British, or even European: Among the meetings, Mallot said, was a U.S. company — “one of our hottest prospects” — whose owner happened to be visiting London. The trip targeted the industries that

local economic development officials typically say are on their radar, including manufacturing and logistics. It also focused on tourism, with Visit Jacksonville CEO Paul Astleford saying the city got its name in front of hundreds of thousands of potential visitors. “When you start to create that kind of exposure, it creates business,” he said. And that exposure is going to continue. One of the key benefits of the trip, said Mike Breen, who handles international affairs for the chamber, was that it is something that will be repeated; unlike other NFL teams playing in London, the Jaguars have made a four-year commitment to return. Breen “It gives us the ability to continue and build upon our message,” he said. Mayor Alvin Brown echoed those words, saying “it’s important not only to take advantage of this strong foundation but to build upon it.” He pledged to go on at least some of the trips to London that are scheduled to take place between now and the game next year. “It’s a long process,” he said, “but I believe at the end of the day it will mean jobs for Jacksonville.” | @JBJTimothy | 265-2228


Forgotten oil deposits could net billions for local firm

L E A D E R S H I P �ne �te� �i��er




ith the help of a Malaysian royal, a Jacksonville company hopes to reap the benefits of a trove of oil and natural gas it believes was left untouched by Chevron in the Gulf of Mexico. Coryell-Ouachita Group Inc. of Jacksonville, which does business as CCEG, recently partnered with Decisive Explorer LLC to develop and acquire leases for offshore oil field in Plaquemines Parish, La. Decisive Explorer is funded in part by a member of a Malaysian royal family, Raja Dato’ Seri Nor’ Ainon, who has invested more than $69 million in the joint venture. CCEG, through its subsidiary Triumph Energy I LLC, is investing $69 million in the form of hard assets, leases and a platform. CCEG began looking for an equity partner in December 2012 and was connected to Ainon through a mutual associate based in Los Angeles, said CCEG Business Development Officer Roger Wilson. CCEG will operate through its wholly owned subsidiary Poydras Energy Partners, which owns the rights to four leases in the parish, which the company said is host to more than 22 million barrels of oil and 102 billion cubic feet of natural gas left untouched by Chevron. Using new technology, CCEG is better able to pinpoint the exact location of


A Jacksonville company is drilling for oil. the wells, Wilson said. Drilling will commence about six miles off the coast and the wells are less than 10,000 feet deep. The group is looking to buy an additional four leases in hopes of establishing nine wells through 2014. The group hopes to generate between $1 billion and $2 billion over a 10-year period, Wilson said. The oil for which CCEG is drilling, called Louisiana Light Sweet, is preferred by refiners because of the low sulfur content and relatively high yields of high-value products such as gasoline, diesel fuel, heating oil and jet fuel. | @JBJMichael | 265-2218

City’s bioscience focus shifts to preventive medicine BY ASHLEY GURBAL KRITZER STAFF WRITER


hile Orlando and other Florida cities are capitalizing on their health and life science industries, building innovation hubs and at-

tracting researchers and professionals, Jacksonville leaders are working on another multiyear plan, this time with a vision of branding the city as a leader in wellness and preventive medicine research. Florida Blue, based in Jacksonville, an-

nounced in late October it would open the Florida Blue Innovation Center in Orlando’s Lake Mary in 2015, choosing Central Florida for its easy highway access and the bevy of direct flights at Orlando International Airport. But just as important, a Florida Blue executive said, is the collaboration in Orlando’s health care sector, which Jacksonville continues to lack, despite the presence of major players like Mayo Clinic and the University of Florida. Health care hubs are major drivers of economic development, attracting highwage jobs and often spurring commercial and residential real estate development. The idea of creating such a hub in Jacksonville dates back at least half a decade and has been bounced around by various leaders in different industries, but has never gained any real traction. “The work in Orlando started five years ago, aggressively,” said Renee Finley, vice president of innovation and market- Finley ing strategy for Florida Blue, “and they have a very large real estate developer and partner in the Tavistock Group driving that initiative. What we’re doing in Jacksonville is in the very early stages.”

Another plan emerges

Those very early stages, however, are about two years old. Steve Rankin, program director for the Jacksonville Community Council Inc., said the group now tackling the issue was formed in 2011 from a JCCI study on creating more recession-proof jobs and industries. The task force formed to analyze that information separated into 13 committees, one of which is focused on health care. Rankin said that group is nearing the end of its two-year implementation phase, and that this summer, it was mostly handed off to Finley and a “charter development committee” to take the idea into its next phase.

“It is what it is. There are other places, as you recognized, in Florida that for one reason or other, have capitalized on similar resources and have moved their communities forward,” Rankin said. “What our group said is, ‘OK, those communities and those locations have done extraordinary things, and they have a huge head start on us in biomedical research, so let’s not reinvent the wheel. What is it we can do without having to catch up by 10 to 15 years that might offer something new?’ ” The answer, Rankin said, is to build on the bioscience concept with a focus on preventive medicine and urban health, in an institute to be housed in Downtown Jacksonville. Preventive medicine is a major component of health reform — trying to keep people healthy instead of merely reacting to chronic disease. “Whether or not we get to the finish line and this comes to fruition somewhere down the line remains to be seen,” Rankin said. “But there are a lot of important people supporting the concept.”

New life for an old building?

Florida Blue has been approached about participating in an innovation center in the vacant Barnett Bank Building in Downtown Jacksonville, Finley said, to be known as the Barnett Innovation Center. Dr. Daniel Wilson, dean of the University of Florida College of Medicine, is also involved in the discussions. The idea of such a hub was one of the selling points for Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan’s Stache Investments LLC, which provided a $3 million mortgage to local developer Steve Atkins in March for the acquisition of the Barnett and the Laura Street Trio. Jim Zsebok, chief investment officer of Stache, told the Business Journal in April that it was the proposal of a higher education component in the Barnett, instead of apartments, that brought the group to the deal.

Meredith and Dana Holladay stand next to a 1938 Piper J-3 Cub they used to own. They flew it around the country in 2012 on a 48-state tour.

Couple moves from D.C. to open flight school at Craig BY MAGGIE FITZROY CORRESPONDENT


husband and wife team of Federal Aviation Administration certified f light instructors just opened a full-service f light school at Jacksonville Executive at Craig Airport. Dana Holladay and his wife, Meredith, who recently moved from Washington, D.C., to Jacksonville, offer lessons to individuals seeking a private pilot license and to experienced pilots seeking advanced ratings or FAA-required training to maintain a private license. Between them, the Holladays have more than 10,000 hours f lying and

Most of their students want to learn how to fly for personal reasons, either for recreation or for travel for their small business. ■

extensive experience as flight instructors in Washington. Dana Holladay also instructed in the Chicago area. Their business, Holladay Aviation, has an office and classroom at Craig Air Center at the airport on St. John’s Bluff Road North. That is also where they keep their training plane, a Piper Warrior four-seat single-engine aircraft. Most of their students want to learn how to fly for personal reasons, either for recreation or for travel for their small business, Meredith Holladay said. For some, it might be “a bucket-list item.” For others, flying is an efficient way to travel for business. When traveling to smaller cities, flying a small personal plane is often more efficient than using the airlines, and a private pilot license is the baseline license for anybody who wants to fly an airplane, she said. The FAA requires a minimum of 40 hours of flight time for a private license. Part of the flying time must be solo, and

students also must pass a written test. They must also pass a flying test with an FAA examiner. There are other f light schools at Craig, but Meredith Holladay said their school is different from most because the couple will run a “mom-and-pop” operation, with only themselves as instructors. Many flight schools hire young instructors who are using the job to acquire flight hours toward certification for an airline job, she said. While a few of their students have gone on to airline jobs, most of their students just want to fly for personal pleasure or small-business use. The number of people seeking private licenses has remained stable over the years, she said, although like any recreational pursuit, it does fluctuate with the economy. The Holladays charge $185 an hour for the rental of their Piper Warrior for lessons, which covers fuel and insurance costs, as well as instructor fees. They plan to add a two-seater plane to their school soon, which would cost $145 an hour to rent. It’s a matter of preference if you want to fly a two-seater or four-seater plane, Meredith Holladay said. Regardless, the school’s industry-accepted syllabus for the private pilot license is the same. The school also offers instruction for pilots who want to earn an instrument rating certification, allowing them to fly in lower visibility conditions. Dana Holladay also teaches pilots how to fly tail-wheel planes, modern replicas of vintage planes. The Holladays moved to Jacksonville for its affordable business opportunities, and because of the city’s proximity to the ocean and mild climate, Meredith Holladay said. She said they teach flying for the love of it. In 2012, the couple flew a restored 1938 Piper J-3 Cub around the country, visiting 48 states in seven weeks. Their journey is chronicled in their book “Fly the Airplane: What Being Pilots Has Taught Us About Life, Love, Survival and Success.” | 396.3502

Florida: A giant pier to ocean trade lanes FILE

A freighter from Puerto Rico being unloaded and loaded at the Port of Jacksonville. A new Florida Chamber Foundation study predicts trading routes will shift to emerging markets in lowercost countries, especially in Latin America and the Caribbean, after the Panama Canal expansion is completed in 2015.



lorida is strategically positioned to become a global trade hub, according to a recent report from the Florida Chamber Foundation, and Jacksonville has the potential to play a part. The study called “Florida: Made for Trade,” released Oct. 14 in partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation, details goals (see Page 13) over the next three to five years Florida needs to achieve in order to become competitive with other states, such as California, Texas and New York, that already established themselves as global trade markets. This is a follow-up to the organization’s 2010 study, which examined trade flows in Florida. A lot of the objectives in this year’s report involve investing in infrastructure that helps promote trade using multiple transportation systems. “Florida is positioned like a giant pier at the crossroads of some of the world’s most heavily traveled ocean trade lanes,” the report said. “Each of the state’s seaports functions as berths on this pier, receiving vessels from across the world.” In addition to sea trade, Florida’s terrain and climate make a natural environment for nonstop air service, and the state’s extensive rail lines also provide another connection to many major markets on the continent, according to the chamber’s study. But it also said the current infrastructure and trade strategies in place are not enough to cope with the changing economic environment.

MANUFACTURING & LOGISTICS QUARTERLY of Engineers is investigating an extension of that depth to 47 feet to fit the draft requirements for both Panamax and New Panamax vessels delivering cargo from Asia through the Panama Canal into the Port of Jacksonville. The port authority said in an Oct. 25 news release that the planning, engineering and design of the project will start after the corps gives its approval, estimated for April. But on top of deeper channels, according to the “Florida: Made for Trade” study, seaports need to offer more efficient infrastructure like larger berths, bigger cranes and intermodal connections, which is an important goal of the Jacksonville district of the Florida ■ THE BUSINESS JOURNAL

Department of Transportation as well. “We are investing in infrastructure to get in and out of the port, in highways and in rail,” said James Bennett, the urban transportation development manager for the department’s District Two. “We have multiple projects going on in all stages, from design to construction.”

Jobs will come

Those developments include a highway construction project in progress at Interstate 295 and Heckscher Drive that will help improve traffic flow to the Dames Point and Blount Island marine terminals, where there is heavy trucking use. Bennett also said the intermodal con-

tainer transfer facility at Dames Point, which is in the design phase, will help move cargo from container ships to docks and rail lines faster. “It’sbeenanongoing,evolvingprocess,” said Michael Goldman, Jacksonville public information officer for the Florida Department of Transportation, “but you can already physically see some results.” All of these projects, Bennett said, promote economic development, which in turn brings jobs. And they should help Jacksonville become a contender as a trade center in the state and as the “Florida: Made for Trade” report suggests, a hub for global trade as well. | 396-3502

Life. Uninterrupted.

New opportunities

“Global trade and economic activity will evolve over the next few decades, creating new opportunities and challenges for Florida,” the study said. “The global economy will grow steadily, new centers of commerce and trade lanes will develop, and logistics will transform through ever-accelerating cycles of innovation.” One of the changes the report details is being prepared for trading routes to shift to emerging markets in lower-cost countries, especially in Latin America and the Caribbean, which will come in 2015, when the expansion of the Panama Canal will be completed. The Florida Chamber Foundation said the widening of the Panama Canal will have the potential to reshape trade flows by opening up a major trade route between Asia and the East Coast of the United States. Removing the bottleneck will allow the Panama Canal to handle larger container ships called post-Panamax vessels, which the study says will make the route more competitive. In order for seaports to participate, they will need channels dredged at least 50 feet deep to fit the post-Panamax ships. By 2015, the report said the East Coast ports in New York; Norfolk, Va.; Baltimore and Miami will be able to handle these container ships. While Jacksonville is not on this list — nor is it mentioned very often in the study — the report suggests that smaller vessels will shift to other seaports in Florida, so they have opportunities to expand their global trade influences as well. Also, Jacksonville is working to dredge the channel in the St. Johns River from the mouth of the Atlantic Ocean to the Jacksonville Port Aut horit y’s Ta l ley ra nd M a ri ne Terminal to make Jaxport more competitive. The 11-mile stretch is 40 feet deep at present, but the U.S. Army Corps

Florida needs goals and strategies to exploit its assets F lorida: Made for Trade: Florida Trade and Logistics Study 2.0, which the Florida Chamber Foundation released Oct. 14, lists the state’s global assets, proposes goals to make Florida excel as a global hub, and identifies critical strategies to achieve those goals. The study defines those assets, goals and strategies this way:

Florida’s global assets

■ Strategic location at crossroads of north-south and east-west trade lanes ■ $132 billion in two-way trade to 225 trading partners ■ $66 billion in Florida-origin goods exports ■ $31 billion in Florida services exports ■ 60,000 exporting businesses, about one in five nationally ■ Leading U.S. state for trade with Latin America and the Caribbean ■ 19 million residents ■ 90 million visitors each year, including 10 million from overseas ■ 240,000 jobs at foreign-owned companies ■ 15 deepwater seaports ■ 19 commercial service airports, including the nation’s top hub for international air cargo ■ 2 spaceports with nine active launch facilities ■ 3,475 miles of shipping, intracoastal and inland water routes ■ 2,786 miles of rail ■ 12,076 center-line miles of state highways ■ 512,000 jobs in transportation, trade, and logistics paying 30 percent more than the statewide average

the Department of Economic Opportunity and the Department of Transportation. 2. Continue the recent strategic emphasis on trade and logistics, including its identification as a statewide targeted industry with priority for trade-related investments by FDOT and other agencies. 3. Integrate, expand and provide sustained funding for programs with proven impact. Examples include Enterprise Florida’s trade missions and export promotion activities, Workforce Florida’s Quick Response Training programs, and FDOT’s Strategic Intermodal System and

modal investment programs. 4. Make strategic investments to ensure Florida is “best in class” in all aspects of global trade and investment. Key initiatives include: positioning Florida as the leading location for trade and logistics education and training in the Americas; and providing marketing assistance and infrastructure investments to expand the number of direct global connections. 5. Ensure an ongoing, strategic presence for Florida at the national level where Florida can shape federal decisions on trade agreements, trade regulations,

customs and other trade-related business processes, and transportation policies and investments. 6. Enhance regional partnerships to target export market opportunities and advance economic development, workforce, transportation and land use decisions that maximize the global opportunities. 7. Develop a Florida Trade & Logistics Institute to research, educate and support the report recommendations. | @JBJRobert |265-2224

Florida’s goals

■ Position Florida as one of the nation’s leading states for global trade and investment, competing along with states such as California, Texas, and New York as one of the key players in the global marketplace. ■ Grow Florida jobs in trade, transportation, logistics, export-oriented manufacturing and related value-added services, with a target of creating at least 150,000 new jobs over the next five years. ■ Expand Florida’s market share on critical global trade lanes, including efforts to restore and expand Florida’s leadership in trade between the United States and Latin America and the Caribbean, and to position Florida as the Southeast United States’ leading gateway for trade with Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. ■ Supply more imports through Florida’s sea and air gateways, to capture more of the supply chain in Florida. ■ Double the value of Florida-made exports during the next five years by supporting manufacturing, agriculture, and other export sectors and encouraging businesses to enter or expand into global markets. ■ Expand trade-related value-added services in Florida, including finance, law, engineering and other service activities that support global trade, as well as professional, health, educational and hospitality services that have global customer bases.

Certified in new perspectives


eorge Allen had some big dreams. After 27 years in the transportation industry, 23 of which were spent at CSX, Allen left to start his own business in 2011. His wife, Lori, worked in banking and maintained health insurance benefits for the couple. That is, until she was laid off when her job was outsourced in 2012. It was in Dec. 2012 that Allen heard a radio spot announcing an information session for University of North Florida Division of Continuing Education’s Certification in Transportation and Logistics. “The session was great,” Allen said. “I was excited to get started, but concerned about how to pay for the program, since money was so tight in our house.”

That was when a Division staff member stepped in. “Vivian Nordgren directed me to WorkSource,” continued Allen. “I was already working with them, looking for a job with benefits, so I knew where to go. After I completed a rigorous interview and vetting process, they approved me for a scholarship that paid for my tuition and books.” Allen began the six-month, five-module program in March. “The experience was amazing,” he shared. “Ron [Shamlaty] and Brett [Harper], my instructors, are a wealth of information. I was blown away by all the real life, relatable examples and experiences they had for every chapter of every book in each of the five texts we covered.”

In addition to the information and skills Allen acquired, he also gained new contacts and leads. “With such a small Shamlaty class, we all got to know each other really well,” he explained. “A couple months in, one of my classmates who works for C&S Wholesale gave me a name and number and told me to call. He had gotten me a meeting, which turned into an interview and then a job.” “Networking is just as big a part of this program as the classroom curriculum,” Ron Shamlaty, CTL and instructor, related. “We keep in contact with most of our graduates and have an extensive network of partnerships with organizations both

local and global. It works in favor of our students for sure.” For Allen, the networking and the curriculum both paid off. He completed his certification in Sept. and as of Sept. 30, began a new position with Republic Services as a warehouse dispatcher, a job he loves and is thrilled to do. “I have been able to relay what I learned through the CTL in my new role,” he explained. “There were some young guys, without much experience, in my class and they really got a head start in this industry. For me, even after almost three decades in the industry, I got a whole new perspective on global business.” - By Jessica Barber

Executive Leadership Development

The four qualities of leadership


eadership can be succinctly described in four qualities, according to Dr. Harold S. Resnick, instructor for University of North Florida Division of Continuing Education’s Executive Leadership program. “Direction and vision, authenticity and passion, caring about people, and building a culture of performance and customer centricity,” explained Dr. Resnick. “An organization and its individuals want to know where they are going and why they should care,” he expanded. “Leaders create the compelling answers, set the course and direction that generate commitment and sense of empowerment to act in cause of the vision.” As for authenticity and passion, Resnick explained that individuals question leaders’ authenticity constantly. They look for words and actions to agree. “Authentic leaders speak from the heart. Their words reflect what they truly mean and are reflected in consistent action. They

Direction and vision, authenticity and passion, caring about people, and building a culture of performance and customer centricity.” Dr. Resnick Instructor for University of North Florida Division of Continuing Education’s Executive Leadership program behave with integrity, driven by principles they apply themselves and demand of others,” Resnick elaborated. The lynchpin for all of these principles comes in how much a leader cares for people. According to Resnick, good leaders genuinely care about people both inside and outside

the organization. They listen and consider others’ opinions. “The ones who do not care are easy to identify,” he explained. “They talk too much or not at all. They are forever convincing others of their story…perhaps needing to convince themselves, as well.” Once these three pieces are in place, a culture of performance and customer centricity may be put in place. “Culture is so powerful because it is the basis for acceptance in a community – it defines the rules and behaviors that we must adopt to be accepted by others – whether that be our family, religion, community, or our company,” he explained. Achieving and growing in these qualities is not only possible, but necessary for leadership development. Resnick expands on this topic in UNF Division of Continuing Education Executive Leadership Development program. - By Jessica Barber

magine building a machine with 20 people who all spoke different languages. For Alan Parsley, human resources manager at Saft, every day can emulate this very scenario. Saft, a French company, has been a world leader in high tech battery systems for more than 100 years. With headquarters in Paris and offices in operation in 19 countries around the globe, its workforce is as dynamic as its product line. Though the company has operations in aerospace, military, rail, transportation and telecommunications, the Jacksonville branch focuses solely on lithium ion energy storage. “We work with municipalities and corporations,” explains Parsley. “Greening is what we call it: wind and solar energy development, helping to stabilize the grid.” To ensure exceptional service and product performance, the company rolled out “Saft World Class,” a continuous improvement program aimed at raising performance and providing customers with better products and services. “Bringing in all of our industries to work together under our World Class program…

we needed a common language,” said Parsley. “That’s where Bob [Wood] stepped in to help.” When Saft sought out new office locations, among the many reasons the company chose Jacksonville were the public-private partnerships between local businesses and public organizations. “University of North Florida’s role in the community, the City of Jacksonville and JAXUSA partnership really enticed the company,” he Parsley continued. “As members of Jacksonville Lean Consortium, we met Dean Wood. He’s good at what he does and immediately started working with us to figure out what we needed.” Within a few months, the company was offering ISO 9001 classes in conjunction with the Saft World Class program. The results began to show. “We’re seeing common

language and active problem-solving teams,” Parsley shared. “It’s an additional tool in the toolbox.” “Saft has limitless potential,” said Robert [Bob] Wood, dean of the Division of Continuing Education. “Alan [Parsley] already understood what continuous improvement programs should look like, having worked for Toyota for 20 years. He just needed a resource to help add it to his team’s toolkit. That’s what we are here to do.”

Health Information Technology Certificate

Changes in health care require new skills


ealth care is changing, specifically, the use of data. With new legislation and requirements, the landscape of the health care industry is shifting and new skills are required for medical office and hospital staff. Employees must understand health information technology, and be capable of working in interdisciplinary teams. “Health professionals will be tasked with technology installation and usage within the health care facility,” explained Dr. Aaron Spaulding, Ph. D, assistant professor of UniverSpaulding sity of North Florida Brooks College of Health. To meet this growing demand, the University of North Florida Division of Continuing Education and Brooks College of Health have partnered to present the Health Information Technology Certificate. “The Health Information Technology Certificate (HIT) program is designed to help train individuals to perform these jobs, and to meet the needs of the health care industry in the area,” Spaulding said. The HIT program will offer classes for individuals who have medical experience and those who do not. For more information, contact Lori Frederick at (904) 620-5801.

Project Management Central

Success comes in project management


arning six figures is no longer limited to doctors, lawyers and financiers. With the right designation and a few letters behind your name, the numbers on your paycheck can climb. The University of North Florida Division of Continuing Education is offering a series of courses for project managers. According to administration, the courses were designed with maximum benefit in mind. “The PMP designation usually equates to a 15-16 percent higher salary than peers of equal experience who lack credentials,” explain Tim Giles, director of the Division. “Those numbers come straight from the PMI: Project Management Institute’s 2011 survey. When you’re talking about a base salary of $92,000, that’s nothing to ignore.” Michelle Sharpe, a recent graduate of the Division’s PMP© Exam prep and Project Management Basics courses, agrees about the benefits, but sees even more than the monetary rewards. Sharpe agreed with Giles about the financial benefits, but was quick to point

course in April and passed her PMP Certification exam at the end of July. For most people, the exam is the hard part. Sharpe, however, was Sharpe prepared and had no trouble. She did, however, have a small snag with the application process. “The exam was difficult,” she recalled, “but I actually had more trouble with the application. Thankfully, Elizabeth and my aunt walked me through the steps. If not for them, I don’t know if I would have even made it to the test date.” Sharpe is excited about her new PMP designation.

How college students handle higher education costs


ollege students today face higher costs and difficulty in finding jobs after they graduate. Is your school affected by these issues and how have you responded?

University of North Florida “University of North Florida students graduate with the lowest amount of student debt of Florida’s public universities. And fewer students even have debt compared with other public schools. We work with students to manage their debt. Finally, UNF graduates have the highest job placement rate in Florida of any other public school.” John Delaney President

Florida State College at Jacksonville “The affordability of postsecondary education is a growing and challenging issue. Even though Florida State College at Jacksonville has the lowest tuition costs of the colleges in our region, 75 percent of FSCJ students depend on some form of financial assistance to pay for their education. Understanding the limits of grants and the sometimes complicated loan provisions requires students to become financially literate. Sound academic planning and a clear approach to managing student debt are the keys to successful degree or certificate completion. “At FSCJ, 41 percent of our students

work full time, off campus while in school. Many more work part time while enrolled. Upon completion of their programs, our graduates are very successful in finding good opportunities for employment in their chosen field.”

Dr. Willis N. Holcombe Interim college president

Jacksonville University “One of the things we are doing at Jacksonville University to address challenges in the job market is to enhance our already strong program offerings. We understand that attending a private college is a big commitment, and so we are always improving upon our traditional liberal arts core curriculum with a strong lineup of signature marketplace programs. For instance, top-rated offerings in nursing, business, marine science, orthodontics, public policy and aviation that give our students an edge over the competition in starting lucrative careers that have immediate impact. “We work hard to attract strong students to whom we can offer an attractive package of scholarships and financial aid, and our current $ 85 million ASPIRE Comprehensive Campaign helps address these issues with a strategic effort that will raise additional near-term and long-term scholarship funding.” Tim Cost President

University of Phoenix

“With unemployment still a con-

cern in Jacksonville, we continue to see a large number of students seeking to leverage an education as a way to re-enter the workforce. Schools must adapt to meet this demand by providing an education that equips students with the knowledge and skills to compete in a global economy. “In response to this demand, University of Phoeni x launched Phoenix Career Services, a comprehensive suite of tools and resources aimed at helping job seekers make more informed decisions regarding their career path and educational options. “The Phoenix Career Guidance System walks students through a stepby-step process of assessing career interest and then linking interests with potential career options. From there, students can view the Jacksonville demand for those career options as well as the education and skills typically required by employers in those fields.”

Dan Macferran Campus director

Trinity Baptist College “It is rare that a dedicated student

would not be able to complete a degree at Trinity Baptist College because of a financial challenge. One of the differences at Trinity is our commitment to be intentionally affordable. “Keep in mind that it is easy to confuse price and cost. The price of a semester for a resident student at Trinity is

about $7,000 for tuition, room and board. However, the average cost is significantly less after applying federal, state and institutional aid including our own matching dollars for grants such as the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program. “Even though the cost at our college is typically less than half of our accredited Christian college counterparts, 98 percent of the students at Trinity Baptist College receive financial aid and/or have a paying job to help with their expenses. “At Trinity Baptist College, we have an unwavering commitment to maintain the highest levels of academic quality while operating within a budget that continues to be strained by inflation and declining gifts. The need for trustees, staff, students and faculty to work together to eliminate waste and use new technologies to become more effective is critical.”

Business college dean relies on community for advice BY TRACY JONES CORRESPONDENT


“We are a finance city in Jacksonville, so him being able


resh off recently being ranked by the Princeton Review as one of the best business colleges in the country, Ajay Samant is working toward making the University of North Florida’s Coggin College of Business into a national standard for training business professionals. He’s the dean of the college and has led it since 2010. Samant knows his role is an important one, not just to the university, but also to the area’s future economic development. “It is very important that we have a strong business school so we are able to provide companies a source of recruitment to attract them to Jacksonville,” he said. Previously, Samant served as chair of the department of finance and commercial law and associate dean at Haworth College of Business at Western Michigan University. While at WMU, he encouraged students to take courses in small groups to promote camaraderie. Samant brought similar ideas to UNF, including keeping class sizes low and having courses taught exclusively by professors rather than teaching assistants. He also looked for other ways to add value to the college, including finding current, marketable skills students can use in the workforce. An example is a course that began

two years ago, financial modeling, which teaches students how to create financial models from large data sets, said Reinhold Lamb, a professor of finance at the college. It’s one of the few colleges that offer it, which makes its students even more appealing to finance employers. “We are a finance city in Jacksonville, so him being able to understand and speak the language, it makes it very

UNF Coggin College of Business Dean Dr. Ajay Samant has led the school since 2010. valuing its input is a priority for Samant, he said. He relies heavily on the opinions of the college’s advisory council, which consists of local community business leaders. “This input is very helpful in making our academic programs relevant to the needs of our community and businesses,” Samant said. Elaine Johnson, principal in corporate development and strategic investments at Florida Johnson

Blue, is the incoming chair of the college’s council. Along with her colleagues, Johnson consults with Samant regularly to enhance student marketability after graduation. She has also watched Samant guide the college through reaccreditation, a rigorous and time-consuming process that required the college to meet increasingly strict guidelines, she said. “He was the one that came in the fourth quarter and carried the ball over to the end zone,” Johnson said. | 396-3502

EverBank unloads high-risk mortgages to Green Tree L oan Servicing company Green Tree will hire at least 500 employees as part of its deal to buy underperforming/high-credit-risk loans from EverBank Financial Corp. EverBank (NYSE: EVER) sold Green Tree $13.4 billion in mortgage service rights and its default service platform. Green Tree will also subservice EverBank’s Ginnie Mae and government loan servicing portfolio with an unpaid principal balance of about $6.9 billion. EverBank would not disclose how many employees work in the department. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Spokesman Michael Cosgrove said Green Tree will take over three of the bank’s floors in the EverBank Center in Downtown Jacksonville as part of the sale. The deal still leaves EverBank with a robust mortgage servicing platform, with a principal balance of $40 billion, but it allows the bank to focus on highquality loans, Cosgrove said. —Michael Clinton

Chase is proposing to add an entrance to the Chase branch from Laura Street and relocate the entrance on Bay Street. It would also add several signs spanning the Chase-occupied storefronts, according to the DDRB agenda. Since early 2013, Chase has been in the process of adding more than a dozen retail branches throughout Jacksonville. —Ashley Gurbal Kritzer

Jacksonville banker named Wells Fargo statewide president Wells Fargo & Co. has named Scott Coble as its new Florida president. The 27-year banking executive served as North Florida regional president since 2009, when Wells merged with Wachovia. Coble started with Wachovia in 1986.

Europe makes business sense Listening to the business and government leaders speaking of the success of their recent trip to London with the Jacksonville Jaguars, you find yourself really wanting to believe the connections made will result in more jobs and opportunities back here in North Florida. The problem is, the specifics were missing. Five hundred jobs, a couple of deals signed in the next six months, said JaxUSA President Jerry Mallot earlier this week, summing up his first-tier expectations. That’s it. No word on the companies, their size or the kind of operation that they might be looking to open in Jacksonville. The chamber is historically tight-lipped about its deals before they are struck, believing that loose lips sink business deals. Lack of details aside, here are some good reasons to believe that trips by local leaders to London — and the reciprocal trips from Europe to Jacksonville — will bear fruit: ■ Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan is opening doors in the U.K. Buying a Premier League soccer team in London will get you that type of attention. Running a billion-dollar car parts business helps, too. ■ Mayor Alvin Brown and City Council President Bill Gulliford were in attendance. Teaming business and government leaders in an overseas business mission shows commitment and conveys the image of a team that is working together. ■ The Jacksonville story is new to Europe. When Europeans think of Florida, Orlando and Miami are top-of-mind. Jacksonville is an unknown, which can be worked to an advantage by a skilled team. ■ The success of Deutsche Bank operations in Jacksonville. The German bank has expanded faster here than it anticipated, and the road ahead looks long and fruitful. Having a world-class European bank breaking the ice for you in London is a very good thing. ■ European manufacturers are searching across the U.S. to open plants, for several reasons: A, It’s logistically better to sell in the U.S. market if you make the goods here. B, Our wages are competitive with European labor. C, The cost of energy is far lower, a trend that will only accelerate given the sudden abundance of oil and natural gas to be exploited by fracking. It takes a lot of electricity to run a manufacturing plant, so the ability to cut costs with cheap energy is a big incentive. ■ We have a seaport with connections to European ports. That’s a huge transportation cost advantage for bringing materials in, or shipping finished goods out. ■ The Jaguars will play three more games in London, giving leaders multiple chances to cement the relationships made during the October visit.

Will liquid natural gas be a game changer for Jacksonville?

■ Absolutely, I added LNG a year ago to my portfolio. ■ What does “the community” or “the city” have to do with it? In the early phases it’s primarily about the rate of adoption by business. Trucking will be the driver for LNG, or it won’t go anywhere, period.

■ Yes — I’m glad we’re jumping on it ■ Yes — but only if the community can pull together

■ No — The city won’t be able to get its act together ■ No — LNG is just a fad

haritable giving can play an important role in tax planning and in many estate plans. Philanthropy not only gives us great personal satisfaction, it can also give us a current income tax deduction. Let us avoid capital gains tax and reduce the amount of taxes

NOV. 8-14, 2013

our estates may owe when we die. There are many ways to give to charity. You can make gifts during your lifetime or at your death. You can make gifts outright or use a trust. You can name a charity as a beneficiary in your will or designate a charity as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy. Or, if your gift is substantial, you can establish a private foundation or donor-advised fund. While cash is the easiest item to donate to charity, it may not be the most tax-efficient. Consider donating public or private stock that

GIVING GUIDE you have held for at least one year and has increased in value or is expected to increase in value over time. If you sold the stock and donated the proceeds to charity, you would be responsible for the capital gains taxes. However, if you donate the stock directly to the charity, you could get a charitable deduction for the full value of the stock, you may not have to pay taxes on the increase in value while you held it, and the charity can use the full proceeds of the stock when it sells. Before you or your financial adviser sell any highly appreciated stock, discuss it with your CPA or accountant to see if you can contribute it to your favorite charity. If you have several charities you would like to support during your life or after your death, consider a private family foundation or a donor-advised fund. A private family foundation is a separate legal entity that can endure for many generations after your death. You create the foundation, and then transfer assets to the foundation, which in turn makes grants to public charities. You and your descendants have complete control over which charities receive grants, but the costs and complexities of a private foundation may not be worth it. Similar in some respects to a private foundation, a donor-advised fund offers an easier way for you to make a significant gift to charity (or charities) over a long period of time. A donor-advised fund refers to an account that is held within a charitable organization. The charitable organization is a separate legal entity, but your account is not — it is merely a component of the charitable organization that holds the account. Once you transfer assets to the account, the charitable organization becomes the legal owner of the assets and has ultimate control over them. You can advise — not direct — the charitable organization on how your contributions will be distributed to other charities. While the options available may seem overwhelming, your CPA, attorney and financial adviser can discuss your priorities and walk you through your options.

The Salvation Army of Northeast Florida salutes the remarkable people who are building a better community through their generous giving!

It pays to give, support our local nonprofits this holiday season


n 2010 the American Express Co. decided to support local business owners and launched the Small Business initiative. American Express emphasized the importance of local business owners to the overall financial welfare and lifestyle of local communities. This holiday season the Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida is reminding everyone that, like buying from local businesses, there are good reasons to give to local nonprofits too. “As great as giving feels, when you give to a local nonprofit this holiday season, you are also investing in the vitality of your community. The nonprofit sector is one of the pillars supporting our region financially and socially,” stated Rena Coughlin, Nonprofit Center Chief Executive Officer. According to the 2012 State of the Sector research, a project underwritten by the Jessie Ball duPont Fund, the financial impact of the nonprofit sector to the region is significant, generating $5.8 billion in revenues and expending about

$5.5 billion into the community. Within the five counties of Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau and St. Johns the nonprofit sector is the third largest civilian employer, behind Leisure and Hospitality and Finance and Insurance ranked one and two respectively. T h e nonp r o f it work for c e accounts for 9 percent of the regional working population. Like other working people they personally contribute to their community’s financial health and well-being: paying taxes, buying homes, volunteering, and supporting local charities. Giving locally makes us feel great and helps fuel this crucial economic driver in northeast Florida. Supporting local nonprofits is easy.

INCOME - RODERICK Determining a career path can be challenging to many, but the United Way Youth Employment initiative made it easy for 16-year-old Roderick Pearson. Placed in a paid internship with the Northeast Florida Center for Community Initiatives at the University of North Florida, Pearson experienced working as a sociologist Roderick Pearson with mother, Robin

this past summer. With the center’s director,

UNF sociology professor Jeffry Will, Pearson compiled a report assessing the state of the East Jacksonville neighborhood. Will was so impressed with Pearson’s project that he submitted it to the Association for Applied and Clinical Sociology (AACS) for presentation. Pearson’s paper was accepted, and he was asked to present it to an AACS conference in early October. Roderick travelled to Portland, delivered an exceptional presentation and networked like a pro. The Robert E. Lee High School junior plans to attend Florida State University and major in sociology.

HEALTH - PHOENIX Facing developmental delays and ADHD, Phoenix sometimes has trouble expressing himself. Before becoming involved with Full Services Schools of Jacksonville, Phoenix may have reacted inappropriately if someone looked at him funny or touched him in a certain way. Now that he receives

individual counseling, he has learned techniques and skills to better manage his anger and communicate his needs without violating the rights of others. His grandmother, Elissa Walker, says, “We have a much happier little boy right now.”

One single gift to the Community Impact Fund addresses critical issues and helps achieve measurable results. United Way of Northeast Florida serves Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau and northern St. Johns counties. More than 100 volunteers invest thousands of hours to ensure that your donations are making a measurable difference in improving lives throughout Northeast Florida.

United Way is more focused and outcome-driven than ever before. One mission drives everything we do. That mission is to provide the leadership, resources and focus to change lives in our communities by creating sustainable improvements in education, income and health.
