Daniel Davis' First Day As JAX Chamber President And CEO

Florida House of Representatives /

State Representative Daniel Davis started his new job as President and CEO of JAX Chamber Monday morning.

Davis is a former City Council President and just stepped down as Executive Director of the North Florida Builders Association.

He says the first thing he’ll do is travel around the area for about three months getting to know chamber membership.

Davis sent Chamber members a message saying he’s committed to growing more jobs in the region. He will not step down from the State Legislature, but he won’t run for re-election.

The new leadership comes on the same day the Chamber opened the doors to newly renovated downtown offices.

Davis visited Beaver Street Fisheries, Rethreaded, Edible Arrangements and ASAP Towing during the day on Monday.

Kevin Meerschaert has left WJCT for new pursuits. He was the producer of First Coast Connect until October of 2018.
