“Sal Nuzzo Joins James Madison Institute as VP of Policy”
By Kevin Derby
Sal Nuzzo has left the Florida Chamber of Commerce to join the James Madison Institute (JMI) as vice president of policy and director of the Center for Economic Prosperity. Nuzzo worked for the Florida Chamber as a research and public policy manager, and before that was chief of staff for Florida State University’s Alumni Association.
“Sal is a key addition to the James Madison Institute team. His wealth of experience and knowledge significantly increases JMI’s ability to guide policy decisions made at the state and national level,” said Bob McClure, the president and CEO of JMI on Monday. “He is a trusted expert, a family man and a Floridian who is personally committed to JMI’s mission of advancing economic opportunity for all Floridians.”
“Leading JMI’s policy department is truly a dream job for me,” Nuzzo said. “I count myself fortunate to be joining such a respected think tank that prides itself on their commitment to free-market principles.
“As Florida’s population increases, our state will face many challenges, but also have the ability to take advantage of many opportunities,” Nuzzo added. “For nearly 30 years, JMI has played a critical role as the thought leader in this period of substantial growth in Florida. I look forward to working with the JMI team to further develop their already extensive research and education efforts as Florida enters into a new era.”
