Dean Chairs Tampa City Task Force on Economics

An economic advisory team gathered to help steer Tampa through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, will be co-chaired by Muma College of Business Dean Moez Limayem. The announcement came this month from the office of Jane Castor, mayor of Tampa.

The group is part of Castor’s Transforming Tampa’s Tomorrow plan to improve Tampa in five key areas. To that end, Castor has worked with the Tampa City Council to assemble a group of subject matter experts, key stakeholders and community leaders.

Limayem and Michael Bloom, of the USF Office of Corporate Partnerships, will co-chair the committee.

The committee will make recommendations on everything from economic prosperity and diversification to strategies designed to reduce poverty and improve household income across all races, genders and ethnicities.
