Workforce Florida’s President and CEO Chris Hart will step down June 30 from his position at the agency tasked with helping train Florida’s workforce to respond to the needs of business.

Hart, who plans to return to the private sector, will remain on board throughout the 2013 legislative session and the organization’s budget approval meeting in May. “My top priority remains ensuring we continue to respond to the marketplace needs of today and tomorrow and, in doing so, remove any barriers to our continued success,”

Hart, a former lawmaker, said in a letter to board members. The agency will conduct a national search for a new president/CEO. “Chris has been and continues to be an outstanding leader of Florida’s statewide workforce investment board and he will be greatly missed,” Workforce Chairman Dwayne Ingram said in a statement.
